An Arab goon was among a group of thugs hired by two German Gestapo intelligence agents to kill American archaeologist Indiana Jones and bar owner Marion Ravenwood and retrieve the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra in the marketplace of Cairo, Egypt in 1936. The thug, along with five other hired goons, attacked Jones and Ravenwood in the corner of the marketplace next to a silverware stall and attempted to kill the two Americans. However, the two were able to escape the thugs.

German agent and Arabs

The Arabs with one of their employers.

In 1936, an Arab resided in Cairo, Egypt as a goon-for-hire. That year, along with five other local goons, he was hired by two German Gestapo intelligence agents to kill American archaeologist Indiana Jones and bar owner Marion Ravenwood and acquire the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra in the marketplace of Cairo. Their identities concealed by dark masks, the six robed men united in a shady building in the centre of the marketplace along with their employers, and soon followed one of the two agents down a passageway to the stall Jones and Ravenwood were examining.[1]

On the Nazi agent's orders, the six hooded men ambushed the two Americans. The second to attack the Americans, the Arab goon went for Jones, only to be pushed to the side into Marion. Marion shoved him into the stall, and began beating him with a frying pan she had taken from the stall. Soon, she was pulled back by Jones and the thug fell to the floor.[1]

Germans and Arabs in Cairo

When this Arab finally got up again, the distraction of another goon's death provided enough time for Ravenwood to be inadvertantly wheeled away in a straw carriage whilst Jones fended off this Arab and another. One of the German agents and his informant witnessed Marion's "escape", and the agent signaled for this Arab, the other goon and two others to come with him and the other spy. The six men pursued the American round a corner, and ran past a pile of baskets.[1]

They were running past the baskets when they heard the screeching of the German agent's informant's Capuchin monkey, and turned around to see Marion hiding within one of the baskets. Two other thugs picked up the basket and made off with it, separating from this Arab, the German agents and the three other thugs.[1]

Behind the scenes Edit
