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

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.)

During the flamenco local scene, Cunningham claims that one of the reasons why Spain is neutral in the war is that the king's father is German (the other being that his wife is British). The king of the time (Alfonso XIII) was, indeed, married to a British princess but his father (Alfonso XII) wasn't German nor alive at the time. It was Alfonso XIII's mother who belonged to the royal family of one of the Central Powers, but she was Austrian, not German. See more
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.
