Product Overview

Prepare yourself for thrills, chills, and gigantic rolling boulders with Indiana Jones: The Adventure Collection! Harrison Ford stars as one of the greatest movie heroes of all time in this spectacular collection, which includes INDIANA JONES AND RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM, and INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE!

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is no ordinary archeologist. When we first see him, he is somewhere in the Peruvian jungle in 1936, running a booby-trapped gauntlet (complete with an over-sized rolling boulder) to fetch a solid-gold idol. He loses this artifact to his chief rival, a French archeologist named Belloq (Paul Freeman), who then prepares to kill our hero. In the first of many serial-like escapes, Indy eludes Belloq by hopping into a convenient plane. So, then: is Indiana Jones afraid of anything? Yes, snakes. The next time we see Jones, he's a soft-spoken, bespectacled professor. He is then summoned from his ivy-covered environs by Marcus Brody (Denholm Elliott) to find the long-lost Ark of the Covenant. The Nazis, it seems, are already searching for the Ark, which the mystical-minded Hitler hopes to use to make his stormtroopers invincible. But to find the Ark, Indy must first secure a medallion kept under the protection of Indy's old friend Abner Ravenwood, whose daughter, Marion (Karen Allen), evidently has a "history" with Jones. Whatever their personal differences, Indy and Marion become partners in one action-packed adventure after another, ranging from wandering the snake pits of the Well of Souls to surviving the pyrotechnic unearthing of the sacred Ark.

THE TEMPLE OF DOOM: The second of the George Lucas/Steven Spielberg Indiana Jones epics is set a year or so before the events in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. After a brief brouhaha involving a precious vial and a wild ride down a raging Himalyan river, Indy (Harrison Ford) gets down to the problem at hand: retrieving a precious gem and several kidnapped young boys on behalf of a remote East Indian village. His companions this time around include a dimbulbed, easily frightened nightclub chanteuse (Kate Capshaw), and a feisty 12-year-old kid named Short Round (Quan Ke Huy). Throughout, the plot takes second place to the thrills, which include a harrowing rollercoaster ride in an abandoned mineshaft and Indy's rescue of the heroine from a ritual sacrifice. There are also a couple of cute references to RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, notably a funny variation of Indy's shooting of the Sherpa warrior.

THE LAST CRUSADE: Chapter 25 in the complete adventures of Indiana Jones has it all: the fedora, the bullwhip, the ophidiophobia (fear of snakes)! INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE reveals how they became part of Indy lore. And, with one cliffhanger after another, it proves again that if adventure has a name, it must be Indiana Jones! This time, Indy (Harrison Ford) is on a perilous hunt for the Holy Grail. He's not alone, either. Joining Junior--uh, Indy--is none other than his cantankerous dad (Sean Connery). Father and son have rarely seen eye to eye. But if the adventure they share can't bridge the generation gap, nothing can. It can. It does. Gather your own generations around and enjoy!
