Synopsis

Curmudgeonly scientist John Marley (in one of his last roles) goes looking for an ancient artifact in the mountains of Mexico, accompanied by his teenage granddaughter, Louise Vallance, rugged journalist Simon MacCorkindale, and Mexican outfitter Blanca Guerra, before sinister tycoon George Touliatos and his henchmen can get their hands on it. A "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-type adventure/fantasy, this film was heralded as the first made-for-pay-cable movie. Originally announced as an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle's "Challenger's Gold", and it not only was a pilot to a prospective adventure series on cable, but also the first TV-movie to have nudity and strong language, with "Parental Guidance" advised.
