Description

When the Allies discover the Nazis are planning to use the Lost Ark of the Covenant as a weapon, they send archeologist Indiana Jones to find it first. Ford is like a cross between Humphrey Bogart and a Superball in this bare-knuckled, barnstorming, pot-boiling, eye-popping, cliffhanging bucket of Technicolor popcorn.
