~~**She's BLOND?**~~ Sweet Mary Michael....she's sleeping with her boss!!--not attractive, not impressive oh my!! She did produce a beautiful child who is an actor.
Elsa--naw, woman who sleeps with dad and son, iffy morals and in general unattractive.
Which brings us to the real and only winner in this vote: Marion--remember that night on the freighter, there isn't anyone on this planet who can wear a white tulip skirted bias-cut satin gown like Marion...she has energy, a sense of humor, faith in her man, she cleans up nice, can be rode hard and put up wet, she is resourceful, fearless, loyal, loving, and she can drink and swear like a sailor--And she's aged rather gracefully all things considered. All this is in my humble opinion--worth exactly what you paid for it.
I was all for Marion, and yes, in Raiders she was a fiery little minx, she'd eat ya alive, no doubt, but in KOTCS she became a doe-eyed stepford wife like a bad advert for valium.
I'd get the impression that the most full on thing Marion Ravenwood gets up to by the end of the fifties, is knitting or flower arranging, instead of busting a glass or bottle over the head of some enibriated Nepalese local.

Ooh, tough call on Marion in KOTCS. I liked the movie, but I kind of agree with you. She didn't get much of a chance to do anything tough. I guess they were trying to show that having a kid and getting older softened her a little, but she should have at least gotten to try to outdrink someone or shoot a gun. Moms are not passive. If she were portrayed realistically and true to her character, she would have gone all mother-bear on the Soviets for messing with her kid.
Scene parallels TLC when Indy does the "don't call me Junior" bit and shoots the Nazis in the castle.
Indy: I can't believe you let them capture you!
Mutt: Mom, mom, mom, mom...
Spalko: All of you will die if you do not help us.
Oxley: Blabber blabber...
Spalko: If you will stop arguing long enough...(takes gun and points it right at Mutt) Maybe now you filthy Americans will do what we say?
Marion: I told you... (kicks guy and takes his gun and kills Spalko) don't call my family filthy!!!!!!!
