Storyline

When Professor Henry Jones Sr. is invited to give lectures all over the world in May 1908, he takes along his wife and son, and invites his former tutor Miss Helen Seymour to teach Henry Jr. during the trip. Their first stop is Cairo, Egypt. When Junior, who prefers to be called 'Indy' and Miss Seymour visit the pyramids, they are invited by T.E. Lawrence (another former student of hers) to join an archaeological dig. When the mummy disappears and a priceless headpiece is stolen, young Indy gets his first taste of adventure. On their next stop in Tangiers, the family stays with Professor Jones' former class mate Walter Harris. Indy befriends a young slave named Omar who belongs to Emily Keen. The two of them get into trouble when they Indy insists on visiting the market place to see a salted head displayed on a pole. Caught by slave traders, they are end up at an auction from which only Harris can attempt to rescue them. Written by Il Tesoro

A shaky start on DVD of a recut television series
27 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Executive producer George Lucas completely overhauled a television series to create new feature length adventures for DVD.

This first movie, "My First Adventure" was a noble but rather shaky start.Mercifully this production had a lot more effort and resource put intoit than Lucas's last attempt to cash in on a successful movie franchise. That is, the first dreadful EWOK TV film. Lucas was also very bold to start this series with a young Corey Carrier playing a 9 year old Indy. It was also refreshing the the focus of this deals with interesting characters rather than action, which would have only looked cheap and exploitative on TV. The cast is solid, particularly Lloyd Owen in Connery's role as a younger Henry Jones Senior, and a standout by Maragaret Tyzack as Indy's teacher Helen Seymour. Its interesting to notice lots of classy British character actors cast in guest roles, which gives the movie a greater weight. British actor Kevin McNally is impressive in this show as a friend of Henry Jones Senior.

The story centres around a tour by Indiana Jones Senior and the antics that Indy gets up to. Additional footage was shot some years later to facilitate the recuting of stand alone 1 hour episodes into 2 hour movies, and as such there are some huge continuity issues with Corey Carrier looking VERY different. However the story and other performances are just about strong enough to mitigate this rather jarring effect. In the latter part of the story there are some well handled(and integral to the plot)action sequences (certainly for a TV show),albeit its horrendously patronising to convince the audience that the Caucasiancharacters can disguise themselves as Africans with oil on their faces and sits at odds with a potentially interesting story about slavery.

Interestingly a lot of the crew from cameramen to production designers are people that would contribute significantly to Lucas's return to the Star Wars saga some 7 years after starting on this.

If you get over that Indy looks like is being played by 2 brothers, which is pretty difficult, then is an OK if a bit shaky start to these DVD movies. However, it does get better as you get into the series
