Ben Kuchera at Polygon, a gaming and entertainment website, felt compelled to write an article about the same topic a couple of years ago. A couple of creepy dialogues- one from the movie, and one between the directors discussing the ‘relationship’ between Indiana Jones and Marion- are included:
The director’s discussing the relationship:
Lawrence Kasdan: I like it if they already had a relationship at one point. Because then you don’t have to build it.
George Lucas: I was thinking that this old guy could have been his mentor. He could have known this little girl when she was just a kid. Had an affair with her when she was eleven.
Kasdan: And he was forty-two.
Lucas: He hasn’t seen her in twelve years. Now she’s twenty-two. It’s a real strange relationship.
Spielberg: She had better be older than twenty-two.
Lucas: He’s thirty-five, and he knew her ten years ago when he was twenty-five and she was only twelve.
Lucas: It would be amusing to make her slightly young at the time.
Spielberg: And promiscuous. She came onto him.
Lucas: Fifteen is right on the edge. I know it’s an outrageous idea, but it is interesting. Once she’s sixteen or seventeen it’s not interesting anymore. But if she was fifteen and he was twenty-five and they actually had an affair the last time they met. And she was madly in love with him and he…
Spielberg: She has pictures of him.
