"The worlds most famouse Adventurer, faces the mystries of India..."

This time Dr. Jones lands in India (Though scenes were originally filmed in SriLanka), After an Action air scene...Opposite Dr.Jones (Harrison Ford) stars the Actress Cathleen Kinmont Who later got married to Steven Spielberg(Director of Indiana Jones trialogy),.

Dr.Jones is away from the Nazis in this sequel to Raiders of the lost Arc, Helps a poor Indian Village for a change, to retrieve the stone of Shiva, which was stollen by an evil witch doctor to use it for evil deeds.

Part of the story takes place in the Indian Jungle, Where elephants and snakes get to greet Dr.Jones...

The Movie Just like the previous Indiana Jones movie keeps you on your toes... every minute of that movie is so exiting, you will even forget to take the pop corn out of the oven...

Manufacturer's product description

Filmmaker Steven Spielberg returns as director for this rip-roaring prequel to 1981's smash hit RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Here dashing, whip-wielding archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford) is joined by comely chanteuse Willie (Kate Capshaw) and a 12-year-old sidekick named Short Round (Ke Huy Quan). Together they search for a mystical stone stolen from an Indian community and stumble upon a dangerous Thuggee cult. Exotic locales, wild chases, death-defying cliff-hangers, last-minute rescues, screaming damsels, and tribal sacrifices are the order of the day as the threesome attempt to acquire the stolen stone. A few scenes originally planned for RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK showed up in INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM--most notably the mine chase sequence, which was part of the 80 percent of TEMPLE OF DOOM shot on a soundstage. After the film's release, the MPAA's Classification & Ratings Board created a new rating--PG-13. Spielberg cast actress Kate Capshaw, who would later become his real-life wife, for the film.
