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, though Marion was captured, Jones was able to escape the thugs.
Hired to kill Edit
In 1936, an Arab resided in Cairo, Egypt as a goon-for-hire. That year, along with seven 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.
Following a failed attempt made by six of the thugs to kill the Americans, Jones and Ravenwood inadvertantly split up, and the latter was found hiding out in a basket. On orders from the German agent, this Arab and another picked up the basket, with Marion still inside, and began a mad dash through the streets of Cairo, Jones following close behind. Jones chased them through a large group of civilians carrying baskets and past an Arab swordsman who he shot and killed on the way. The two Arabs soon finally reached a German truck driven by two other Arabs and, after swapping the basket with another, dumping their package in the back of the truck.
Behind the scenes Edit
The right basket thug was portrayed by an uncredited performer in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
