Raiders of the Lost Ark: 30 Years Later

Sunday marked the 30th anniversary of the classic, Raiders of the Lost Ark, the movie that introduced us to the iconic hero, Indiana Jones.  Without realizing it the previous night, I watched Raiders and was amazed how well it still holds up today.  The iconic character, Indiana Jones, was first introduced in Raiders of the Lost Ark.  George Lucas thought of the character around the same time as Star Wars, and drew upon aspects of old 1940s movies to create the adventurous archeologist.  In the scene shown below, originally Harrison Ford was supposed to use the whip to remove the sword from the guy’s hand, but Harrison was feeling sick and was told to just shoot the guy.
