The year is 1936. An archeology professor named Indiana Jones is venturing in the jungles of South America searching for a golden statue. Unfortunately, he sets off a deadly trap but miraculously escapes. Then, Jones hears from a museum curator named Marcus Brody about a biblical artifact called The Ark of the Covenant, which can hold the key to humanly existence. Jones has to venture to vast places such as Nepal and Egypt to find this artifact. However, he will have to fight his enemy Rene Belloq and a band of Nazis in order to reach it.Written by
The Conan O'Brien show did a spoof of "Young Indiana Jones" auditions. In one hilarious take Tig Notaro pretends to be Indy in the boulder scene. But instead of running away from it she casually steps to the right, let's the boulder roll past her, and then she keeps walking. See more »
In the classroom scene, Indy writes the word "NEOLITHIC" on the chalkboard. Later in that scene, it is apparent that the word has been rewritten (most likely due to multiple takes). The letter "H" has more curve, and the extraneous mark above it has been removed. The line under the word, once straight, now curves, and no longer intersects the bottom of some letters as before.

[picking up poison dart]
The Hovitos are near.
[tastes the end of the dart, spits it out quickly]
The poison is still fresh, three days. They're following us.
If they knew we were here, they would have killed us already.

This movie has everything: action, a good cast, humor, a wonderful soundtrack (John Williams) a good pace and a good script. I watch this movie like 2 or 3 times a year and it still fascinates me. Thank you for this masterpiece mr. Spielberg! They don't make movies like this anymore!
