Renowned archeologist and expert in the occult, Dr. Indiana Jones, is hired by the U.S. Government to find the Ark of the Covenant, which is believed to still hold the ten commandments. Unfortunately, agents of Hitler are also after the Ark. Indy, and his ex-flame Marion, escape from various close scrapes in a quest that takes them from Nepal to Cairo.

FADE IN:

EXT. PERU - HIGH JUNGLE - DAY

The dense, lush rain forests of the eastern slopes of the

Andes, the place known as "The Eyebrow of the Jungle". Ragged,

jutting canyon walls are half-hidden by the thick mists.

The MAIN TITLE is followed by this:

PERU:

1936

A narrow trail across the green face of the canyon. A group

of men make their way along it. At the head of the party is

an American, INDIANA JONES. He wears a short leather jacket,

a flapped holster, and a brimmed felt hat with a weird feather

stuck in the band. Behind him come two Spanish Peruvians,

SATIPO and BARRANCA. Bringing up the rear are five Yagua

INDIANS. They act as porters and are wrangling the two heavily-

packed llamas. The Indians become increasingly nervous. They

speak to each other in bursts of Quechua. The American, who

is known to his friends as Indy, glances back at them.

BARRANCA:

(irritated)

They're talking about the Curse again!

He turns and yells at the Indians in Quechua, his anger giving

an indication of his own fears. The party reaches a break in

the canyon wall and takes the trail through it.
