Archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones is hired by the U.S. government to find the Ark of the Covenant before the Nazis.
Indiana Jones' name comes from the name of Marcia Lucas' dog, and is a play on Steve McQueen's eponymous character name in Nevada Smith (1966). Indiana the dog, who was a Malamute, also served as the inspiration for Chewbacca in the Star Wars saga.
The Hovitos are near.
Satipo: The poison is still fresh, three days. They're following us.
Barranca: If they knew we were here, they would have killed us already.
At the site of the German dig, Indy is lowered into an underground chamber. With a brush he sweeps sand from an engraved stone to reveal hieroglyphics. In close up shots we see four circles with sand close to the circle on the left. In camera shots from a greater distance, more sand has been swept away to the left of the four circles.
The mountain in the Paramount logo dissolves into the mountain in the Peruvian jungle.
