  • Set in the 1930s, tweedy archeology professor-by-day/globe hopping treasure hunter by night Indiana Jones is recruited by Army intelligence to go after and get his hands on the legendary Ark of the Covenant before everyone's favorite villains the Nazis do, or else Adolf Hitler, a 'nut on the subject' on the occult, will gain possession of the ultimate weapon, a weapon could conceivably render Hitler's diabolical army invincible. Jones is soon off on the adventure of a lifetime, seeking out the coveted Headpiece to the Staff of Ra which the Nazis require to find the ark, an artifact possessed by his former professor's daughter and his old flame, Marion Ravenwood. Once he has it, with Marion in tow, Indiana must outrun the Nazis, supervised by his old nemesis Rene Belloq from the snowy alps of Nepal to the deserts of Africa in an action filled race to the ultimate truth.moreless
