Insignificant molehill...

sometime more important

than conspicuous mountain.

Professor Thurston, your uncle,

he is here, perhaps?

No, he's in Luxor.

We'll wait till the sun drops,

then we'll all drive in together.

Thank you so much.

- Right through the garden.

- Thank you so much.

- Stick around, Snowshoes.

- Yes.

My brother Barry.

Beauty of Egyptian night

captured in simple melody.

Those native things

are all right for a while...

but one of these days,

I'm gonna send home for some jazz.

The old maestro stuff.


Good evening, Edfu Ahmad.

Has UncleJohn returned?

He's in the laboratory,

but he heard your arrival in the car...

and will be up in a moment.

- Oh, Edfu?

- Yes, Miss Arnold?

- Will you ask Nayda to bring

some cigarettes from my room?

- Certainly.

- Here, have one of mine.

- No, thanks. I prefer my own.

We'll go into the study,

Mr. Chan.

- Smoke?

- Do not indulge.

Confound it.!

I've lost my glasses again.!

Edfu Ahmad.!

You mustn't mind if UncleJohn

seems a bit angry, Mr. Chan.

He'll be all right

when he gets his glasses.

Ah. I thought I heard that old

rattle-trap of yours drive up, Tom.

It's enough to wake the dead.

When archaeology pays bigger and better

- Professor Thurston.

- How do you do?

- So pleased.

- Mr. Chan wanted to see Dad.

- I've explained he's away.

- Oh, yes.

- Sit down, won't you?

- Thank you.

- Was it on a matter of importance, Mr. Chan?

- Most important.

Business with

French Archaeological Society.

Oh, then perhaps

I can help you.

- I'm in charge during my brother-in-law's absence.

- Oh.

Then will come to point quickly.

Matter concerns

valuable items...

taken from tomb of

high priest Ameti.

In, uh, just what way,
