Karen Allen Signed Raiders of the Lost Ark 8x10

"Indiana Jones. I always knew some day you'd come walking back through my door. I never doubted that. Something made it inevitable. So, what are you doing here in Nepal?"

 

This classic scene from the first of the Indiana Jones trilogy has been signed by the Karen Allen who portrayed Marion Ravenwood. Marion was a tough talking, spunky, hard-drinking gambler, she is first introduced during a drinking contest, out-drinking and betting a hardy Nepalese peasant in front of a large crowd. Before tackling the role of spunky Marion Ravenwood in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Karen Allen had never tried her hand at an action role, having starred in numerous dramatic film and television projects. Her first feature film role was Katy in National Lampoon's Animal House.

 

Marion was the only child of Abner Ravenwood, an archeologist obsessed with the Ark of the Covenant. Dr Ravenwood used to be a teacher at Chicago University and he worked for a while with one of his students, Indiana Jones, who had proven to be particularly talented. However, Jones also proved to be talented with women and their profesional relationship ended when he broke Marion's heart. Marion had been too young then and she hated him in the years to come. Her life became even harder when her father died in an avalanche in the Himalayas. He left her broke in Nepal and she had to fight to survive - hence the frosty reception which Indy gets on entering Marion's bar!

 

Indy first hit screens in the Raiders of the Lost Ark. The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade followed and with the recent announcement of a 4th movie, this piece can only rise in value! In the first instalment, renowned archeologist and expert in the occult, Dr. Indiana Jones, is hired by the U.S. Government to find the Ark of the Covenant, which is believed to still hold the ten commandments. Unfortunately, agents of Hitler are also after the Ark. Indy, and his ex-flame Marion, escape from various close scrapes in a quest that takes them from Nepal to Cairo.

Karen's other films include In The Bedroom, Perfect Storm, Malcolm X, Starman and Scrooged. It remains for her feisty performance as Marion Ravenwood that Karen remains best remembered. The Indiana Jones trilogy are considered modern day classic and often feature towards the top of of all time greatest films lists. This is your chance to obtain a piece signed by the leading lady from the first film. Significantly, the picture also shows Marion with the headpiece from the Staff of Ra. Marion wore this artefact as a necklace - ultimately it would lead the way to the location of the Ark - but not before th evil Nazi Toht had burnt his hand whilst trying to pluck it from a fire in one the most memorable scenes in the film. Don't miss out!
