Raiders of the Lost Ark Trailer (1951)

A while back, I posted a similar "trailer" for Ghostbusters, and here is (obviously) 'Raiders of the Lost Ark', ostensibly. I like the casting of Chuck Heston as "'Indiana'" Jones, pulled from the movie 'Secret of the Incas'. Or would it be "'Indiana' Jones"? I don't know. Either way, these trailers are excellent, and if you'd like to see more, visit the filmmaker's YouTube page@ whoiseyevan

There's also a bevy of info on 'Secret of the Incas' at The Raider.Net. Since the movie is pretty difficult to find, you might just want to read up on it:

If there is one movie that truly inspired Indiana Jones, look no further than Secret of the Incas. This low budget adventure romp has more right to that accolade than any other film or serial in the adventure genre. The film stars a young Charlton Heston as Harry Steele, a seedy fortune hunter who is determined to find the Sunburst, an ancient Inca treasure hidden somewhere in the bowels of the ruins of Machu Picchu.
