Indiana Jones The Raiders of the Lost Ark

Released: 1981
Directed by: Stephen Spielberg
Cast: Harrison Ford, Denholm Elliot, Alfred Molina, Anthony Higgins

The Film: Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have a knack for producing great adventures, and this is certainly the case with Raiders of the Lost Ark . You're in for thrills as Indiana Jones confronts snakes, Nazis and one astonishing cliffhanger after another - all topped off by the opening of the mystical Ark of the Covenant. It's possibly one of the greatest adventures of all time.

Composer: John Williams's rousing and iconic Raiders March has come to symbolise Indiana Jones. The soundtrack received an Oscar nomination for best original score, but lost out to Vangelis' electro-synth based score for Chariots Of Fire .
