An Action-Packed Double Bill!
“Raiders of the Lost Ark,” the spectacular story that has captured the imagination of millions with the heroic adventures of Indiana Jones, has been called “the movie Hollywood was born to make.” As thrilling as its story, though, is the discovery of the techniques, effects and daredevil stunts that went into the creation of “Raiders.” This cassette actually contains two made-for-television specials: “The Making Of Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “Great Movie Stunts: Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
Narration by “Raiders” star Harrison Ford enlivens the “Stunts” episode, which demonstrates how major action sequences were designed and executed. “The Making Of Raiders of the Lost Ark” captures the cast and crew in the studio and on location as they tackle the many problems created by an adventure spectacular of this magnitude. Together, these two programs document the unforgettable thrills and adventures so completely that it’s almost like seeing the movie again. And what a movie! Winner of 5 Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects, Sound, Editing, Art Direction and Sound Effects Editing.
