Raiders of the Lost Ark(1981)
The first Indiana Jones film takes place in 1936, as our hero finds himself sent to Eqypt on a government mission to locate biblical treasure The Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis. The Jewish treasure is said to contain the power of God and, if it fell into the wrong hands (i.e. Hitler’s), would bring doom to the world. In his quest, Indy comes up against rival French archaeologist Rene Belloq (Paul Freeman) but finds more than he bargained for in the vivacious Marion Ravenwood (Karen Allen), an ex-girlfriend whose talent for trouble rivals his own.
