Indiana Jones Series Episode 1

Help keep Now Playing on the air!

Individually Steven Spielberg and George Lucas were Hollywood’s two most popular filmmakers.  When they joined forces it seemed a hit was guaranteed with Raiders of the Lost Ark.  But this was no science fiction epic; Raiders was a period piece about an archaeologist racing Nazis to discover a religious relic.   The film cemented Harrison Ford as a star, launched a film franchise, and maintains its popularity to this day.  What makes Raiders of the Lost Ark such a classic?  Donate to Now Playing and you can join Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob and find out!
