30 Days of Film (19): Favorite Action Film
The movie opens with the origin of one of Indiana Jones' most prolific relics, his hat. After securing an artifact that belonged to Cornado on a Boy Scout trip, a chase sequence on top of a circus train takes place, with young Indiana Jones wielding a whip for the first time. We also get our first hint at Henry Jones as well.
The action ramps up when we find Jones later in life in a search for his father, which in turn leads to the search for the Holy Grail. But the Nazi's are after it too.
Classic action will never die, and there is a certain authenticity about it since it is not riddled with over the top special effects.
