    No-one complains about an age difference in Raiders because there is literally no reason to.

    It is not the super-smart example of hypocrisy that you think it is. There are examples out there, but Indy isn't one of them.

    The point is: it's perfectly okay when the guy is older than the woman, but it is somewhat of a issue when the woman (either the actress or/and her role) is older.

    Yep. Ford reached the point with some of his younger co-stars where the age difference was really getting creepy (like with Anne Heche) but he seems to have finally moved gracefully out of trying to do romantic leads.

    Heh, how about Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt in As Good as it Gets, he was 60, she was 34, so, there's 26 years right there.

    I imagine Michael Douglas and Clint Eastwood probably had some shocking age differences as well

    Well, there is fourteen years between Douglas and Eastwood, so it isn't that bad in comparison...

    :p

    I think Doug Hutchison takes the cake with his 16 year old wife and he's only 50 maybe 51.

    But my point is that it's established in the movie that he's older and is almost a plot point in the case of Raiders.

    I'm not denying that there is an element of hypocrisy. I'm just saying that Indy is a terrible example.

    Which brings me back to my original comment to you:

    But if you are still going to be nitpicky, how about this (still using Indy as an example): Ford is 12 years older than Kate Capshaw and 24 years older than Alison Doody. No one complains.

    Especially since the age difference Indy and Marion when they first hooked up was what caused the initial rift between Indy and Marion's father Abner in the first place.

    Are Ford and Alba cast in "Man of Steel" or something? :) Amy looks very cute in those pics.
