“Raiders of the Lost Ark” Opened On This Date In 1981

It’s the movie Hollywood was born to make, and was born making. It has buried treasures and Nazi villains, poison darts and mystical wraiths, damsels in distress and Arabian swordsmen, snake pits, submarines, booby-trapped jungle caverns, Himalayan taverns, Egyptian bazaars and an archaeologist hero with the grit of Bogart, the dash of Gable and the fearlessness of Superman.  It’s called “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” and it’s about as pure an example of the Hollywood summer movie as anything since “Jaws” and “Star Wars.”

OMG. Lieutenant Nguyen Manh Phan attempted to stop this bus in Hanoi today. When the bus driver, 37 year old Phung Hong Phuong, didn’t pullover, Phan held onto the windshield for more than a mile. Phuong, who served four years for traffic manslaughter in the 2000s, is now in custody and faces up to three years in Vietnamese prison for resisting law enforcement.

GIFin’ the news. (Was worried where this one was going! From the video it looks like the Lieutenant was unharmed.)
