The Cairo Henchman was a man paid by the Nazis who was looking to capture Marion Ravenwood in Egypt, 1936. From a distance, he charged at Ravenwood who quickly armed herself with a frying pan from a merchant's display when she saw him.
As the attacker approached her, he pulled a knife out from behind his back and laughed. Ravenwood reassessed her situation and fled while the knife wielder gave pursuit. She ran into a building to escape from him, though when he followed her inside, she clobbered him with her frying pan. Unconscious after he fell backwards out of the doorway and took a second hit when his head collided with the cobblestone ground, Ravenwood dragged his body inside to avoid attracting any of his friends.
Behind the scenesEdit
His figure is actually just a repaint of the toy line's Arab Swordsman with a different head, in colors based on the group of men with their faces hidden, such as the unfortunate Cairo thug stabbed by his comrade, rather than uncredited actor who played the specific character that gets knocked out by Ravenwood's frying pan. However, the description on the toy's box clearly indicates that the figure is intended to be that man.
