Grab your fedora and whip, nostalgia buffs! This week on Back in the Day with John and Jay, we're journeying back to 1981 to uncover the timeless adventure of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Join us as we delve into the epic quest of the one and only Indiana Jones, played by the legendary Harrison Ford.

John and Jay will guide you through the thrilling plot where our daring archaeologist races against time (and Nazis) to locate the biblical Ark of the Covenant. We'll break down the film's heart-pounding action scenes, from the iconic boulder chase to the explosive finale, and discuss why these moments continue to set the standard for adventure films today.

Get ready for a treasure trove of fun facts and behind-the-scenes stories. We'll chat about Steven Spielberg’s direction, George Lucas’s story creation, and the incredible special effects that brought ancient booby traps and supernatural forces to life. Plus, we’ll highlight the unforgettable supporting cast, including Karen Allen as the fiery Marion Ravenwood and Paul Freeman as the sinister Dr. René Belloq.
