Indy obviously had some kind of past with women, but Heston was a habitual predatory user in a way that's unimaginable for Indy.

Probably because Spielberg was courting a family audience with his movie. So in a way, there is still a (Reagan era) production code being enforced. They make a point of letting the audience know the hero is heterosexual but not an oversexed gigolo or predator like Heston's character had been.

Glenda seemed right at home in an environment full of rough edges (in a kind of Gloria Grahame-esque way) and it made me wonder whether or not she did much work in noir, because she seemed perfect for it. 

 

Yes, I would have loved to have seen her in noir.

Farrell has a minor role in the 41 noir Johnny Eager,  an MGM effort with Robert Taylor, Lana Turner and Van Heflin (winning an Oscar for best supporting actor).

In the last week or two, I have really started to become familiar with Glenda. I had seen her before, and yet this is the first time when I have really been focusing on her in things, and she's such a delight. Great comic timing, wonderful acting, effortlessly steals scenes.
