Raiders of the Lost Ark ★★★★★

Harrison Ford with whip and fedora as Indiana Jones, on the trail of finding the lost ark of the covenant. Cleverly told against the backdrop of WWII and the Hitler regime, it's filled with action and suspense scenes that keep unfolding at every turn. A perfect role carved out for Ford and another iconic franchise like Star Wars where he played Han Solo.

Karen Allen plays Indiana Jones' feisty love interest Marion Ravenwood. She would return in the fourth film in the series. This is my personal favorite of the series to date. Highly recommended.
