12 Stories That Prove The Making Of 'Raiders Of The Lost Ark' Was An Adventure Behind The Scenes Too

Steven Spielberg and George Lucas once teamed up to tell one of cinema's most beloved and fun stories: Raiders of the Lost Ark. The hero Indiana Jones is still well-known, and John Williams's music remains synonymous with the professor's epic tale. Putting together an adventure film is now safer and easier, thanks to digital technology. In 1980, however, Spielberg and the rest of the crew had to create everything by hand, leading to some wild and spontaneous filmmaking. Scenes were delayed, added, and reworked as the RotLA crew tackled new challenges every day. 

The story behind the scenes of Raiders of the Lost Ark is almost as fun and exciting as the film itself. It was born from the brilliantly chaotic world of cinematography that was present in the '80s and became one of the best movies of all time
