Raiders of the Lost Ark is thirty years old today. I loved that movie when I was a kid. I remember going to see it with my sister (who took me to most of the movies I saw as a child, because my parents thought these newfangled movies were all stupid). We went to see it because we loved Harrison Ford in Star Wars, but I wound up loving Raiders all on its own. That Christmas my sister gave me the movie poster, so I had Harrison Ford's face hanging on my closet door all through my adolescence.
It's one of the few "classics from Mommy's childhood" movies I haven't gotten my oldest to see yet. I need to work on that, because everyone should see Raiders!
