Steven Spielberg created Raiders of the Lost Ark as an homage to the adventure films he grew up with as a child. Even elements in older action films made their way into the best Indiana Jones film.
Now, there’s a video that compares Raiders to the films it was inspired by. And it does this side by side so you can easily see the comparisons. It compares it to 30 films made from 1919 to 1973 and it’s a must watch if you love Raiders of the Lost Ark. [via Slashfilm]
