1. Raiders of the Lost Ark
It's been 40 years since we met Indiana Jones, practically the best character (sorry fans of Star Wars) in Harrison Ford, and also the greatest hero of all time in one of the greatest action movies ever made. And that's not an exaggeration, as hundreds of movies in the genre have copied it since then, even games like Uncharted and tomb Raider.
The producer George Lucas and the director Steven Spielberg launched Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981 as a tribute to cinema, especially the stories they loved so much, serialized adventure stories from the 1930s and 1940s, without realizing that it would become one of the most attributed and inspiring films in history. Interestingly, Indiana was created because Steven always wanted to make a movie of James Bond.
Of course the movie became a success that yielded 4 more features and a fifth that is already in production with Harrison returning to his hero role. But for this to happen, Spielberg and company ended up creating a whole legend and universe around the character, which even had versions of comics, books and games! But the curiosities about Indy have always been the happiest and craziest in the cinematographic universe. And let's go to some of them!
