Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)
Over Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
When Dr. Indiana Jones – the tweed-suited professor who just happens to be a celebrated archaeologist – is hired by the government to locate the legendary Ark of the Covenant, he finds himself up against the entire Nazi regime.
This Steven Spielberg-George Lucas collaboration rewrote the rule book for action films. Harrison Ford leads the way as the wise-cracking, hard-charging lead, and Karen Allen provides fireworks as his ex-lover. With incredible stunts, a soaring John Williams score, and an ending that shocked audiences, this must-see adventure is an all-time classic.
“Raiders of the Lost Ark” was nominated for 9 Academy Awards and won for Best Art Direction, Best Film Editing, Best Sound, Best Sound Editing, and Best Visual Effects.
