Raiders Of The Lost ArkRaiders Of The Lost Ark, Raiders of the Lost Ark Directed by Steven Spielberg Screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan History of George Lucas and Philip Kaufman Starring Harrison Ford, Karen Allen, Paul Freeman, John Rhys-Davies, Ronald Lacey John Williams score Released June 12, 1981 (USA)  Announced the 1970 the best season of the hit summer movie. Two of the biggest movies of the decade, Star Wars and Jaws, define the summer movie season. These films, directed by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, respectively, are still advertised by us – the geeks. Most of us would not be here writing and reading this website if not for these movies (my name is Obi-Dan for the love of God!). This dream team of movie making came together to create one of the best action adventure movies ever made: Raiders of the Lost Ark

From a story by George Lucas and Philip Kaufman, who had recently co-wrote the screenplay for Clint Eastwood’s excellent, starring Western, The Outlaw Josey Wales, and Indiana Jones began to take real shape in the late 70′s. The screenplay was written by Lawrence Kasdan, then your script from Raiders only second to that made (the first “Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back Talk only a year before hitting the ground running.).

Raiders of the Lost Ark begin in hostile surroundings in 1936. After failing in his attempt to recover the golden idol in the jungles of South America, Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is soon attracted in search of Staff of Ra, which leads to the Well of Souls, the resting place the Ark of the Covenant. The chief of staff is now in the possession of Marion (Karen Allen), who owns a bar in Nepal, a harsh environment where people are more difficult: that men can drink twice its size under the table and the first time I met her on-screen Indy punches him in the face.

As the movie takes place in the 1930′s, there is a most heinous people also searching for the hidden items: the Nazis. Aided by his companion and guide, Sallah (Jonathan Rhys-Davies), Indy must use his wits, whip, pistol, and cunning to find the Ark and maintain megalomaniac Belloq (Paul Freeman) and Toht of (Ronald Lacey) MITS it nasty Nazi.

Indiana Jones is the most famous and certainly cooler whenever the name of a dog. I guess that sharing the same name as George Lucas Malamite of Alaska (a breed of dog is not a euphemism), Indy is about the similarities come – unless there is an unpublished draft of the script, where Lucas Jones defecates on floor the kitchen and lick their own genitals. Once again, I’m just guessing. His image is one of the most iconic in film history – throw in a hat, a brown leather jacket and a whip, and you’ve got a costume, sir. A man described by Luke as James Bond – a character that spends more time between her legs exotic and often crudely comic called – no hardware, so to speak. But Indy does not need to rely on (admittedly impressive) gadgets to get the Baddy and the baby. And the Nazis.

Lucas wanted an unknown to play the all-action archaeologist rather than the pilot of the Millennium Falcon. Almost was not as simple as Spielberg wanted Ford. Tom Selleck was screen tested for the role, but I think Spielberg and Lucas decided that the coarse grain harvest of manhood Auburn in the top of Selleck would prevent sniffing Nazis and archaeological treasures.

Another team member mentioned dream was John Williams. His scores have become as famous as the films that help to color films: Jaws, Star Wars, and Superman, to name a miserable, but with a few iconic forces. At the time of work in Raiders had an experience of over 20 years of writing music for film and television.

Raiders re-view it is surprising that this film is 30 years old. It still feels fresh, intelligent and exciting. It really feels like watching a movie made by a group of people in complete control to know exactly what they are doing and what I do. And that’s exactly what it is. It has been more than a quarter century old and as the Staff of Ra, the catalyst for the adventure of our hero, this film turns on the way. When he reaches his half-century, people still talk about Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
