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

Trivia

A new bridging segment to add some closure to the first half of the story was shot in Tunisia on August 11, 1997 during production of Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999). As all the actors had signed a long term contract to include potential re-shoots, Joseph Bennett and Vic Tablian were available to reprise the roles of T.E. Lawrence and Demetrios. Doubles were substituted for Corey Carrier, Margaret Tyzack and Tony Robinson. The double for Carrier gets to speak a line in his own voice. See more »

Goofs

As Henry Jones Sr., Lloyd Owen has blue eyes during the opening sequence, wears brown contact lenses during the scenes taken from The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles: Young Indiana Jones and the Curse of the Jackal and back to his own bright blue color for the remainder of the story. See more »

Quotes

Should be first 'adventures'
12 March 2008 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

The title is a bit of an inappropriately long mouthful and the film is clearly split into two separate halves that have nothing to do with each other. I'm not really fussed about this, as they both have enough plot and developments to keep the viewer interested.

It opens with Young Indy explaining how he is no ordinary child before being shipped off around the world as his dad (Lloyd Owen doing a very good Sean Connery impression) goes on a lecture tour. Though his mother and private tutor don't take too kindly to his willingness to get into loads of trouble.

When in Egypt Indy meets Laurence of Arabia and helps unearth a tomb in which a priceless headpiece is stolen (this plot is never resolved but I assume it will in later instalments). In Morocco he is kidnapped by slave traders and makes pals with a young servant.

That's it really. Nothing really involving but it is nice, light entertainment. The educational aspect of Indy meeting historical figures and learning a wide range of things from them is not in the least distracting and is actually convincing as what inspires him to be the famous archaeologist that he ends up being.

A promising start, I don't why John Williams didn't allow for his theme to be used though. It was even in the video games after all. And since this is a genuine Lucasfilm production I was surprised it was not included even if it would have been a bit out of place considering the material.
