Crusading

Watched "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" last night with a couple of friends, and I was really struck how well it holds up twenty years later. Decided I had to write about it!

Maybe it's simply that the "Indiana Jones" series is set decades in the past, offering an extra layer of protection from anachronism, but in a recent viewing of the third film on DVD, "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" proved itself a timeless film that holds up exceptionally well.

Also noted the passing of comedian and actor Harvey Korman, Star Trek director Joseph Pevney, and composer Alexander Courage. Courage wrote an awful lot of outstanding music -- much of it I've heard, some of it I even knew was his. But he'll always be most famous for crafting one of the best-known fanfares of all time, the original theme music from Star Trek. How appropriate that I was in the middle of an original series episode on the TiVo when I heard.
