    “Raiders of the Lost Ark” 30th anniversary

    Next month marks the 30th anniversary of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” !

    Check out this excerpt from “The True Adventures of the World’s Greatest Stuntman,” the just-published memoir by Vic Armstrong, the stunt coordinator and stunt double who Martin Scorsese has called “a legend in the film world.” Armstrong has portrayed James Bond, Superman and Flash Gordon – at least when the action was underway — but his signature screen success came while wearing a fedora in three Indiana Jones films. In this excerpt from the new Titan Books hardcover, Armstrong writes about working with Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg and offers an account of one scene (where Indiana Jones shoots a swordsman) that differs a bit from widely reported versions that credit Ford with a memorable moment of improvisation.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981)

    30th Anniversary Screening
    When Friday, June 17, 7:30 p.m.
    Where Samuel Goldwyn Theater
    8949 Wilshire Boulevard
    Beverly Hills, CA 90211

    Presented by the Academy’s Science and Technology Council

    Hosted by film historian and author Eric Lichtenfeld

    As part of the “Prime Tech” screening series, the Science and Technology Council presents a 30th anniversary screening of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981), featuring an onstage discussion with members of the film’s crew.
    Shooting around the globe, director Steven Spielberg and his crew braved 130-degree temperatures and 6,000 live reptiles to create this adventure that celebrates – and transcends – the classic serials of the 1940s.

    An Academy Award nominee for Cinematography, Directing, Music (Original Score) and Best Picture, and winner for Art Direction, Film Editing, Sound, Visual Effects and Special Achievement in Sound Effects Editing, the film stars Harrison Ford as archaeologist Indiana Jones, who must race against Nazi forces and a shadowy rival in a life-or-death quest to recover the lost Ark of the Covenant.

    Panelists


    Several key members of the “Raiders of the Lost Ark” crew will gather for an onstage discussion of the role motion picture science and technology played in shaping the movie.
    • Richard L. Anderson
    • Ben Burtt
    • Gregg Landaker
    • Frank Marshall
    • Steve Maslow
    • Bruce Nicholson
    Check back for the latest updates on panelists.

    Sad that they aren't doing more. How about a wide re-release of the movie? Raiders and Doom are the only two that I haven't seen on the big screen yet.

    That would mean Paramount would have to give up screens for Spielberg's new film, 'Super 8' to show Spielberg's 30 year old film....

    Kauai, it had to Kauai...

    On September 29 (1980), the production arrived in Kauai, Hawaii, for the opening scene of the film.

    I hope they bring Indy to Blu ray. Hmmm, wonder what yummy extras they could put on it.

    Steven Spielberg on ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’:
    ‘It does not seem like 30 years ago’


    “It’s really startling,” Spielberg said. “Number one, it seems like it was only five years ago, it does not seem like 30 years ago. And the other great thing is I’m still close to everybody that made the movie. We’ve all watched each other grow up and olderolder [not old] – and I love how that ‘Raiders’ family has stayed together for 30 years. We’re all still the closest of friends. ‘Raiders’ was the first movie where I actually shot the movie without thinking. I like to say that the line in ‘Raiders’ that most typifies the production of that movie was when Harrison says, ‘I’m making this up as I go along.’”
