This weekend will mark the 30th anniversary of the release of Raiders of the Lost Ark. I can remember when that movie came out every kid wanted to be like Indiana Jones. Indiana became famous for his bull whip he carried on all his adventures. The 1981 action-adventure film, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford, became the top-grossing film of the year and was nominated for eight Academy Awards in 1982 and won several awards including Best Picture.

At the time the film was made for just $18 million, but grossed $384 million throughout its theatrical releases.
