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.)

After his rendezvous with the "blind man", Indy travels from Amsterdam to Prague. In the scene that follows and his suitcase accidentally opens, revealing several items of ladies' underwear, everyone but Indy speaks Dutch. This suggests that he is still in The Netherlands. However, the name of the station is "Belovar", which is located in Croatia. The people in this scene also look anything but Dutch nor does the location. 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.
