Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark by Ryder Windham- Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, by Ryder Windham
- There are 4 main characters in this book, Indiana Jones, Marion Ravenwood, Rene Belloq, and Major Toht.
- Indiana Jones is an archaeologist as well as a Professor of Archaeology at the fictional Marshall College in Bedford, Connecticut. Indiana is the main protagonist of the story. Indiana is constantly on the run from those who wish to sabotage his archaeological plans and discoveries or from those who wish to end his life. During his various ventures across the globe, Indy reconciles with old friends, makes new friends, and finds new enemies.
- Marion Ravenwood is a tough, self-reliant woman who is unintimidated by men and is able to take care of herself when the situation demands it. Surprised to see Indiana Jones years after he abandoned her and their relationship, she is unwillingly forced to tag along on Indiana’s quests after a bar she owned in rural Asia was burned by Nazi treasure hunters.
- Rene Belloq was a French archaeologist who rivaled Indiana Jones. Rene is one of the antagonists of the story. He constantly made efforts to sabotage Indiana’s findings and was successful in stealing Indiana’s treasures many times. He was hired as a mercenary by Nazi treasure hunters and he worked for the Nazis to look for the same artifact that Indiana Jones sought.
- Major Toht was a Gestapo agent part of the Nazi treasure hunting team. He was a sadistic psychopath and was extremely loyal to Adolf Hitler. Toht was the main antagonist of the story. He was a quiet man, rarely speaking unless he was torturing another character or intimidating another character.
- The story is set in 1936, a few years before the start of World War II. A team of Nazi treasure hunters led by Major Toht watch over Indiana Jones when he reconciles with an old friend by the name of Marion Ravenwood. The Nazis had evidence that Ravenwood possessed a headpiece capable of pinpointing the location of the Ark of the Covenant, a biblical artifact supposedly used by the ancient Hebrews to carry the Ten Commandments on their march to their Promised Land. If Indiana could locate the Ark using Marion’s headpiece and give it to the U.S. government for extensive examination, all may go well, but if the Nazis find the Ark of the Covenant first, they could harness its power to gain a massive advantage in the ensuing World War.
- The main conflict of the story was about Indiana, Marion, and the rest of his friends beating Major Toht’s team of hunters to the Ark of the Covenant. Despite the fact that the Nazis acquired the Ark, the mysterious spirits that were emitted from the Ark upon opening had the ability to send anyone into the afterlife if the people happen to look at the spirits. Not knowing this serious fact, this put the Nazis’ lives in grave danger.
- I enjoyed this book as I had knowledge about the stories of Indiana Jones. Since this book was written after the Indiana Jones film of the same name, it was easy for me to follow along the story as I had previously watched the movie when I was much younger. Adapting an adventure movie to a book has many advantages, and one was the fact that the author could further explain key plot points or give the characters in the story more development. Reading the book always kept me remembering about the parts that came next in the story, and it was a great feeling because it reminded me of my first time watching Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Pepsi Summer Movie Series: Indiana Jones & the Raiders of the Lost Ark
So I want you to watch this movie and think only about staging, how the shots are built and laid out, what the rules of movement are, what the cutting patterns are. See if you can reproduce the thought process that resulted in these choices by asking yourself: why was each shot—whether short or long—held for that exact length of time and placed in that order? Sounds like fun, right? It actually is. To me.
