Fences and Indiana Jones

Yesterday in one of my English classes we were discussing the Robert Frost poem "Mending Wall". When asked what they thought about the ambiguous ending of the poem a female student responded, "You can't borrow sugar or anything from a fence."
I took an informal survey with some of my students. Out of about 110 students, only 8-9 have ever seen an Indiana Jones movie. I find that rather depressing.
