Raiders of the Lost Ark
DIRECTOR: STEVEN SPIELBERG
CAST: HARRISON FORD, KAREN ALLEN, PAUL FREEMAN, ALFRED MOLINA
Spielberg’s pulse-pounding invocation of the spirit of the Saturday matinee serial introduces Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones: academic, archaeologist, adventurer, and all-American puncher of Nazis. Follow Indy on a globe-trotting itinerary from the jungles of Peru to frozen Nepal to dusty Cairo to a stony Aegean isle, along the way avoiding rolling boulders, bad dates, and facial peels. You’re humming the theme already, aren’t you?
