King Solomon’s Mines Tagline: An action-packed adventure, full of laughs and heroics. –

“Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny” just hit theaters, the fifth installment in the legendary Harrison Ford series. But a lesser-known archeological adventure didn’t enjoy the same success. This week, it’s Richard Chamberlain in “”King Solomon’s Mines.””

Is it a “Temple of Doom” knock-off? A parody? An homage? We’re not sure, but “”King Solomon’s Mines”” is a script with origins more than a century old. Shat The Movies megadonor MoonlitTear drew our attention to this quirky flick featuring a young Sharon Stone, “Indiana Jones” star John Rhys-Davies and loads of horny Germans.

In this first of a two-part podcast special, the Shat Crew learned about The Canon Group, 19th century racism and just how dark Indiana Jones could have gotten. Have a listen and join us next week for the sequel: “Allan Quatermain and The Lost City of Gold.”
