Raiders of the Lost Ark VHS Box Description (1986 Release)
This is it! Harrison Ford and filmmakers Steven Spielberg and George Lucas team in the first Indiana Jones movie—and set the whirlwind tone for Indy's adventures to come. Here, you'll find archaeologist Jones up to his neck in danger and —snakes alive!—up to his kneecaps in squirming reptiles. Indy hates snakes!! He hates Nazis, too, and he'll stop at nothing to keep those goose-stepping goons from obtaining the mystical Ark of the Covenant. Hang on—and enjoy!

"The most incredible series of action and stunt set pieces I've ever seen in a movie."
Roger Ebert's Movie Home Companion
