Storyline

May 1917. Sixteen year old Indiana Jones joins an international trio of spies plotting against their German counterparts in the neutral city of Barcelona. After his old acquaintance Pablo Picasso helps him get a job at Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes, Indy devices a plan to forge a love letter written by the German cultural attaché to make it seem he is having an affair with the Countess of Toledo. In August of the same year, Indiana is reassigned to Prague where he is to receive an important phone call. Unfortunately his hotel room proves to be unequipped with a phone. Indy heads for the Ministery of Telephones, where he learns that having to confront Czech bureaucracy can be quite a trial. Written by Il Tesoro

Trivia

While the poster of the Diaghilev ballet in Barcelona advertises Stravinsky's music, and the spy ring characters mention the "Rite of Spring", the music actually used for the soundtrack as well as the ballet rehearsals is from "Scheherazade" by Rimsky-Korsakov (probably because it's a bit lighter on the ears to the uninitiated.)

Goofs

When the Prague Spy is stuck in the closet, he is heard to say "I have to go wee wee". However, his mouth forms the words "I have to go to the bathroom". See more »

Quotes

Marcello: [narrating] We have the very best agents in the intelligence community. A very crack squad as the British might say. I am of course Italiano and a master of disguise. I used to be a taylor. And then there is Charles, a Frenchman, who used to be a tax inspector. And Cunningham, the Englishman. In peace time, he wrote novels, thrillers. But now in war time he is acting them out. You will like our little group, I am sure.

Dip into comedy
7 November 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A potentially exciting series of adventures in the life of young Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery) is ruined by a dip into unfunny slapstick comedy. Indy is posted to Barcelona on another intelligence mission to monitor Colonel Schmitd (Kenneth Cranham), a German military man based in Spain. Later on, he ends up in Prague, where a simple mission to install a telephone becomes a bureaucratic nightmare...

The production values and the acting are all still good quality, but the performers are severely hampered by a script which plays all their scenes for out-and-out comedy. Comedy, as demonstrated by the "Star Wars" prequels, is not Lucasfilm's strongest suit. The nonsense that ensues includes a scene where Indy, masquerading as a dancer, communicates with his colleagues using his diamond codpiece (don't ask) and a slapstick scene where Indy chases a vital document through the city streets, upsetting many people along the way. Some of the actors in these sequences are lumbered with French accents right out of "'Allo Allo".

There are still a few gems here. Flanery is still highly watchable as Indy and it's nice to see Danny Webb make a return as Picasso. It's a relief when Tim McInnery turns up as Kafka and he plays his part straight, balancing out the absurdity of the episode.

Not as good as the others but still watchable entertainment.
