Raiders Of The Lost Ark is an action-adventure film and the first in the Indiana Jones Series about an archeologist and adventurer who is hired by the US government to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis. A soft-spoken, bespectacled professor is one side of Indiana "Indy" Jones. The other is a thrill and artifact-seeking adventurer with no fear - well except for snakes. He is then summoned from his ivy-covered environs by Marcus Brody to find the long-lost Ark of the Covenant. The Nazis, it seems, are already searching for the Ark, which the mystical-minded hopes to use to make his stormtroopers invincible. But to find the Ark, Indy must first secure a medallion kept under the protection of Indy's old friend Abner Ravenwood, whose daughter, Marion, evidently has a "history" with Jones. Whatever their personal differences, Indy and Marion become partners in one action-packed adventure after another, ranging from wandering the snake pits of the Well of Souls to surviving the pyrotechnic unearthing of the sacred Ark. Raiders Of The Lost Ark won 4 Oscars along with 4 other nominations in 1982. This movie is rated PG.
