Do not fill this in!===Trivia=== [[File:Temple of Doom map.gif|thumb|Path taken in the movie.]] *The Chinese dialogue in the opening scene is in the Shanghainese dialect. *Actor/wrestler [[Pat Roach]] — who appeared in two roles as towering, burly henchmen who fight Indy in ''[[Raiders of the Lost Ark]]'' — also appeared in this film, as the [[Chief Guard|slavemaster]] in the mines. Besides Ford, he is the only cast member to return for the second film. (He also had a cameo appearance in ''[[Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade]]''.) *The opening musical sequence was designed by [[Steven Spielberg]] to fulfill his desire to direct a Busby Berkeley-style musical number. The song performed is Cole Porter's ''Anything Goes'', translated into Mandarin. [[File:Obiwan.jpg|thumb|Club Obi Wan]] *The nightclub in which the opening sequence takes place is called "Club Obi Wan", undoubtedly a reference to the character Obi-Wan Kenobi from Lucas's other famous film series, ''Star Wars''. The club's name is visible when Indy, Willie, and Short Round escape in an automobile. *The sound effects of the mine car scene were recorded from the Disneyland attraction Big Thunder Mountain Railroad's trains going around the track. *When Indy is about to cross the rope bridge, he is stopped by a sabre-wielding [[Thuggee]]. He attempts to draw his gun a la ''Raiders of the Lost Ark'' but finds that he has lost his gun. A musical cue from ''Raiders'' is played. *[[Indiana Jones]] is named after [[George Lucas]]'s dog. In this film, all three leads are named after dogs. Willie was the name of Spielberg's dog, and [[Short Round]] was the name of the dog belonging to scriptwriters Gloria Katz and Willard Huyck. *Though always called "Willie", [[Willie Scott|Capshaw's character]] is fully named "Wilhelmina", an apparent [[Lucasfilm]] in-joke referring to the infamous [[Wilhelm scream]]. *On their way to Pankot, Indy informs Willie they see [[vampire bat]]s. In reality, all species of vampire bats are native to Latin America. *Similarly, some of the bugs in the scene greatly featuring them are not even from [[Asia]]. *"Indiana Jones and the Temple of ''Death''" was the original title, and was translated as such for the released film's German version. *The monkey brains were custard with food coloring. *Willie stating her desire to go back to Missouri is a likely inside reference to the fact that the actress portraying her, Kate Capshaw, grew up there herself. *Some fans believe that the mention of the Japanese bombing of Shanghai is an anachronism, thinking that it applies to an event that occurred in 1937. Actually, the Japanese bombed Shanghai in 1932 in retaliation for Chinese attacks on Japanese civilians in the city after the Japanese annexed Manchuria. *When the map showing the flightpath of Indiana Jones and his companions is displayed, it shows their path goes from Shanghai to Chungking and then onward toward the eastern India-China border, near Burma. However, images show the plane flying over a section of the [[Great Wall of China]], which would not be near their flight path at all. Additionally, Burma wouldn't have existed at the time either, as it was part of India until 1937. *When Indy is fighting in his room with the assassin, the whip gets caught in the ceiling fan and lifts him off his feet. In reality, the chances of a ceiling fan being able to support the weight of a full-grown man are extremely slim. Besides, after the assassin is hanged, the fan would not continue revolving with the body weight hanging from the blades. *During the rope bridge scene, there are a few distant camera angles that show that the bridge is suspended between a gorge that seems to be a hundred feet deep with tree branches and large rocks in the shallow creek not far below. But whenever there are above shots, such as after Indy cuts the bridge in half and when the half with the survivors clinging on hits the gorge wall and a few Thuggees lose their grip and fall, or when Mola Ram dislodges one of his men and causes him to fall, the gorge appears to have changed heavily: at first when the bridge is sawed in half, most of the Thuggees plunge down into the rocky creek, the gorge wall is steep and the chasm does not look very deep although it is a nasty drop. But when a few surviving Thuggees on one half of the bridge fall off, the gorge appears to have become a thousand feet deep with a completely vertical wall, no branches in sight, and a wide, deep-looking river with no rocks in it. *The “crocodiles” in the river are actually American alligators. *After the assassination attempt, Indy tells Shorty to turn off the ceiling fan. He does and the whip is untangled from the blades, dropping the dead assassin to the floor. However, as he drops, the assassin puts his hands out to soften his landing and after he hits the ground, the man moves his hands as though to steady himself. *When Indy, Willie and Short Round arrive at the airport, the man who greets them, Weber, is portrayed by Dan Aykroyd. Weber's first name is debatable as it appears as Art in the DVD subtitles, yet others claim it is Earl. In the background of the same scene, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg can be seen handling luggage. *This is the only film in the ''Indiana Jones'' series not to include the [[Ark of the Covenant]], [[Marcus Brody]] or [[Sallah Mohammed Faisel el-Kahir|Sallah]] in some form. *This is the only film in the ''Indiana Jones'' series in which none of the film's events take place in the United States. *Kate Capshaw would marry director Steven Spielberg seven years later. *The television show ''[[MythBusters]]'' tested the plausibility of two of the film's stunts: using a series of awnings to make a multi-story fall survivable, and using a life raft to make a fall out of an airplane survivable. The life raft stunt was considered busted, while the awning fall stunt was considered plausible. *This is the only film in the ''Indiana Jones'' series in which the actual franchise logo font is used on-screen to display the title.
