Adventure Tale: Yes But No
I had the kewlest idea for an action-adventure movie, in which our dashing heroine must outwit the unwashed, print-shop-operating, short-statured survivors of an ancient South American civilization; then it was pointed out that "Indiana Bobbi and the Stinky, Pygmy, Inky Incas" was gonna make announcer's heads explode. (Then there's the problem of 'em not being especially short, nor ever less familiar with bathing than, say, classical Romans. Frikkin' reality!)
