Indiana Jones and the raiders of the lost box office

He may not be getting any younger and that bullwhip might not crack with the snap it once had. But Indiana Jones's enduring ability to strike box-office gold has eased some of the pain of a disastrous early summer for Hollywood's studios.

Indiana Jones and the tangled plot: The updated version of the bullet-proof hero is back, looking a little weary but now resistant to nuclear attack

Harrison Ford: Whip hand

The jokes have been wearily predictable. The news that Harrison Ford is to return to the silver screen as Indiana Jones, some 18 years after what was billed as his Last Crusade, has prompted a deluge of dodgy ageist puns. The 66-year-old star is ironically rebranded as Indefatigable Jones, and the film, variously, as Raiders of the Lost Memories, The Saviour of a Lost Art, and The Temple of Zimmer. Then there are all the inevitable gags about whips being swapped for hips, as in replacement.

Letter: Charging about

Sir: Why is it that we do not build our houses with a 6-volt supply in addition to the standard 240?

Music on radio: Oh for a little nastiness and some stimulation...

From Berlioz to Wolf, composers have doubled as music critics. But it seems a bit unfair to put them in a situation where they feel obliged to say nice things about colleagues. Composers are not luvvies, and let's face it, well-meaning appreciation can have an awfully numbing effect. There's nothing like a bit of nastiness to stimulate attention.
