Springfilm returns with our new theme – Edge Of Your Seat – with an adventure film sure to keep you enthralled: Raiders of the Lost Ark. Directed by Steven Spielberg and based on a story by George Lucas and Philip Kaufman, the film introduced the world to Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford), the fedora-wearing, bullwhip-toting, Nazi-fighting archaeologist.

Frequent Spielberg and Lucas collaborator, John Williams (Star Wars, Jaws), composed the original score.
