"Steven Spielberg and Lawrence Kasdan blasted onto the scene in 1981 and declared the return of great adventure. Nominated for 9 Academy Awards including Best Picture, INDIANA JONES instantly became one of the greatest films of all time.
For nearly 3,000 years man has searched for the lost Ark of the Covenant. No one knows its secrets and it is protected by forces beyond your imagination. It is desired above all things by both good and evil men. An army with the Ark in it's possession would be rendered unstoppable...that is unless someone else finds it first.
Harrison Ford IS Indiana Jones in this Nazi-bashing romp around the globe on a race to find the lost Ark of the Covenant. White-knuckle action and sly humor created a masterpiece of cinema for the ages for all ages. (Greg MacLennan)"
