Storyline

Africa, December 1916. Despite disobeying orders, Indy is promoted to Captain after capturing a German machine gun. He is then ordered to cross the jungle with Remy and Captain Boucher to pick up a shipment of weaponry. Along the way his Ubangan Sgt, Barthelemy picks up the sole surviving child from a disease ridden village despite Boucher's orders against it. On the way back, Indy and company succumb to disease themselves, and are picked up by Albert Schweitzer and the orderlies from his jungle hospital. At first resistant to being treated by a German, Indy soon begins to realize that Schweitzer is not interested in war, only attempting to cure people against all odds. Written by Il Tesoro

Is that title long enough?
19 June 2009 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

Clocking in at 13 words this Young Indy adventure surely has one of the longest titles I have ever encountered.

Indy and Remy are still in Africa, and thanks to Indy's brazen attitude in the battlefield he's promoted to Captain before being given an important mission where he must secure delivery of a cache of machine guns. In order to do this he and his men must march through the Congo, where all but a couple of them die of jungle disease. After a middle segment that echoes the African Queen in more ways than one they are rescued by Doctor Albert Schweitzer.

But the Doctor is German, and is soon kicked out of Africa despite all of the good work he has done.

OtGaToL (how about that for an acronym?) is all about Melodrama and features very little action. Once the opening battle is over it's all talk, talk and talk all the way to the end. If I wanted a soap opera I'd watch Days of Our Lives.
