@MaryJoFinch Nice comment, but you're quite wrong that Jackson followed the 1933 version "scene-by-scene". He was certainly in love with the original, but that didn't stop him from adding things and making changes. I believe he even shot a jokey answer to this question, but I can't find it now :-/

Each of the students have their own grievances with Dr. Jones, so he says he'll see them one at a time. If you watch the scene closely, the two girls he first sees are extremely annoyed with him. He acknowledges their frustrated looks, and then promises to see everyone in order.

If you want the scene again, you'll notice that they don't talk about the Cross of Coronado. Marcus simply asks, "Did you get it?". So by your theory, the students would have to be watching through the door and immediately recognize what it was. They could not "eavesdrop".

comment What happened to the pursuers when the lightning hit?
Good question, but it's kind of a crappy end to the story if he's just struck by lightning at that point. Interesting to know the answer.

Another problem: Since nobody knew about the exciting adventure that Indiana Jones had just been on, including Marcus, your answer suggests that these college kids (who are just learning the basics of archaeology) would recognize the Cross of Coronado on sight.

Here's the problems with your theory: 1) Even Marcus wasn't sure that he had the cross until Indy told him. 2) Indiana didn't just meet them outside of class. 3) Nobody knew about the Cross of Coronado except Indy at that point. Also, what exactly would a news reporter report? The only witness to the whole opening event was Indiana Jones. Are you saying that he got back and immediately called a reporter to do an interview? Why would kids who want his autograph say things like "My grade!"? And also, unless this was the first day of school, wouldn't they have already gotten his autograph?

I think re-doing all the special effects, and then re-cutting the entire movie is far bigger than making Greedo shoot first!
