Alan Quatermain and Golan-Globus return to the podcast with 1985's King Solomon's Mines! Richard Chamberlin, Sharon Stone, and John Rhys-Davies star in this low-budget ripoff of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Alan Quatermain and Jesse Huston must traipse across the African continent to rescue her repeatedly beaten elderly father, who's been kidnapped by World War I era Germans (NOT Nazis) so he can divulge the whereabouts of King Solomon's mines.
Using planes, trains, and automobiles, they get to the mines through cannibal tribe, voyeuristic lions, monkey people, and crocodile pit. Where does this fit into the Indiana Jones canon? Is it better or worse than Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? Only one way to find out!
|Starring Bobby Moynihan as "Perverted German Guard #1."|
- Alan Quatermain uses dynamite like a Swiss Army Knife.
- I wouldn't consider stabilized nitro glycerin to be a super-weapon, but I'm biased. Regardless, any opportunity for the French to rag on a non-French dead guy, they're gonna take it.
- Revealing mistakes: OBVIOUSLY fake railroad ties when Quatermain is dragged behind the train. OBVIOUSLY (emphasis added).
