‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ turns 40: Karen Allen and Belloq actor Paul Freeman reveal secret treasures

Karen Allen was on location in Northern California when she got word that she’d gotten the part of Marion Ravenwood in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” A courier arrived with a copy of the full script of the 1981 movie that would introduce Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. The courier stayed in the room while Allen read it — this was top secret stuff, after all — and Allen knew she was all-in on this adventure movie that director Steven Spielberg and producer George Lucas had offered her. “I had fallen ...
