It's no secret that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were inspired by old serial adventure movies when they first developed the Indiana Jones character, but how much of the old stuff did they really pay homage to in the first Jones adventure, Raiders of the Lost Ark? YouTuber StooTV has taken on the difficult task of compiling shot-for-shot recreations of famous Indiana Jones sequences alongside old serial adventures from the early 1900s through the 1970s. StooTV began with the opening scene in Raiders, utilizing scenes from 31 different films. The result? A really fascinating look at just how much of Raiders you can find in these old adventure flicks. Fun stuff.
