Indiana Jones - the new hero from the creators of JAWS and STAR WARS.
Next month will mark the 30th anniversary of the GREATEST adventure film ever made... "Raiders of the Lost Ark"
Released on June 12, 1981, Raiders of the Lost Ark became the top-grossing film of 1981; it remains one of the highest-grossing films ever made. It was nominated for eight Academy Awards in 1982, including Best Picture, and won four (Best Art Direction, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing, Best Visual Effects) as well as winning a fifth Special Achievement Academy Award in Sound Editing. The film's critical and popular success led to three additional films, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008), a television series, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (1992–1996), and 15 video games as of 2009. In 1999, the film was included in the United States Library of Congress' National Film Registry as having been deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
Over the next few days (weeks) I'll be making a few more posts about Indy, Raiders and the rest of the franchise too.
If adventure has a name…it must be Indiana Jones.
