I don't find (personally) Paul Freeman as Belloq or whomever played the businessman in Crusade any more memorable I have to say. Their respective demises, yep! But themselves thay are about as unmemorable to me as any of them. Though I have always quite enjoyed Capshaw - I found her amusing and I like Karen Allen as well.

The strength of Indiana Jones has really always been Ford. It all revolves around him anyway.
