Young Indiana Jones Confronts The War Years on DVD
* Espionage Escapades: Going undercover as a dancer for the Ballets Russes in Spain, Indy meets an old friend, the flamboyant Pablo Picasso. Plotting to discredit some German diplomats, Indy engages in a series of comic misadventures with a trio of bumbling spies before being shipped off to Prague on another mission. His assignment is simple: get a telephone installed in his apartment and wait for instructions. But he is thwarted at every turn by apathetic officials, mind-numbing rules and infinite paperwork. Only one man, Franz Kafka, offers him any assistance. This film is a farcical take on the stereotypically suave portrayal of espionage and also pokes fun at the narrow-minded evil of bureaucracy, which weaves its ineffectual web into an absurd straightjacket.

Receiving orders to assist the British in an attack on the ancient Middle Eastern desert town of Beersheba, Indy goes undercover with a beautiful lady spy.

The story culminates in a spectacular cavalry charge by the gallant soldiers of the Australian Lighthorsemen Regiment whose very survival hinges on the success of Indy's mission.
