Wise choice



"You have chosen...wisely"

Indiana Jones is the sh*t. Maybe I'll get the DVD box set for Christmas...

*****

For those of you who haven't seen Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, a quick synopsis of the part I drew (courtesy of Wikipedia):

"Guided by the diary, Indiana circumvents three deadly booby traps, reaching a room where a knight of the First Crusade, kept alive by the power of the Grail, has hidden it among many false cups, while Donovan and Elsa (from the nazi party) follow. The knight informs them that, if they wish for the Grail, they must choose wisely for it, for while drinking from the true Grail will bring them everlasting life, a false Grail will take it from them. Elsa identifies a golden, bejeweled cup as the Grail, and Donovan impatiently drinks from it. Realizing the Grail is false, Donovan dies, aging rapidly into dust.

Indiana picks out the true Grail, a plain cup with a gold interior, worthy of a humble carpenter (Jesus), and drinks from it, whereupon the knight advises him that he has chosen "wisely". "

Awesome illustration. I bet Harrison Ford would love to have it. You should get the box set. We bought it and our family had a great time watching every movie and then watching the final one.
