Special Notes:
$49.95 MAP (Minimum Advertised Price). Available only in "The Adventures Of Indiana Jones: The Complete DVD Movie Collection" -- not available individually at this time. The set is also available in a modified 1.33:1 (4:3) version.) Versions purchased at Best Buy will include an exclusive fifth disc, which includes ten minutes of additional bonus material.

Story Synopsis:
"Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom" is the sequel to "Raiders," but was actually a prequel (it was curiously set one year prior to the events in "Raiders"), and finds our favorite archaeologist-adventurer (Ford) in India on a quest to locate the Sankara stones that were stolen from a village and return enslaved children to their families. The chief instigator of the PG-13 MPAA rating, the Oscar-winning visual effects and the thrilling mine car chase are among the film's highlights. (Michael Coate)

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits a colorful picture with fully saturated, well balanced hues, generally accurate fleshtones, and deep, solid blacks. The jungles of India are lush and green, while reds and golds abound in the Pankot Palace. At times, however, fleshtones can appear a bit hot. The picture is sharp and nicely detailed, with very satisfying clarity and definition. Very few scenes appear soft or smeared. Contrast and shadow delineation are quite capable of delivering a natural visual experience in the film
