To his dismay, he finds his house has been demolished and his papyrus scrolls stolen, the scrolls he needs to find the Pharoah's Tomb in Egypt, where the River of Life flows. After identifying the source of the papyrus theft, he packs and leaves for Egypt with his assistant Vulnavia, still intent upon awakening his dead wife Victoria. The parties responsible for the theft of Phibes' scrolls suffer an attrition problem as Inspector Trout chases him across the world.

Of course I'm obsessed with life.

And somewhere in Egypt that

obsession will be answered.

This... This is all hypothesis.

Five years ago I

toured the whole area.

Indeed, Ambrose.

And nothing.

I remember looking down

upon the whole valley.

That, my friend, was

your greatest mistake.

You looked down. Did it never

occur to you to look up?

- The sky?

- Exactly.

That's where the answer lies.

The stars.

The moon.

The sky is the key.

While you look down, I look up. The rings

of Saturn, when were they discovered?

- Beginning of the 18th century.

- Exactly.

And yet, look here.

See? Plainly marked.

And that map is 5,000 years old.

And this.

Only a fragment, but

what significance!

It's a page from the log of a Phoenician

ship. Notice the positioning of the stars.

A chart more sophisticated than anything

we allowed for in our calculations.

And, finally, this.

The Temple of Ibiscus.

- That's where we're going.

- What do you hope to find?

If there's treasure, gold, it's yours.

I'm seeking something more.

- What more do you want?

- I like to think he wants me.

I can tell by your face, you've forgotten.

We're dining with Princess Rica.

I'm sorry. I'll go up and change.

Make Ambrose a drink, will you?

- When are you two going to?

- Get married? You'd better ask Darius.

Perhaps after this trip.

Sometimes it's like... as if he's

going to Egypt for my benefit.

Every day he grows more preoccupied with

something. I wish I knew what it was.

Oh, Ambrose, I don't want to go!

- But I thought you wanted to go.

- No, I wasn't talking about tonight.

Well, are we ready?

Here we go, then.

Huh! Come along, my dear.

At least the meal

should be interesting.

We should get a good

claret, anyhow.

Darius, we can't keep the princess
