Indiana Jones is searching for Marion, who has been kidnapped in a wicker basket. A rather amusing chase in the back streets of Cairo ensues, with Jones always one step behind the fleeing Nazi stooges.
His problems are compounded when he runs into a market place which is thronging with Arabs carrying these baskets. Jones has no choice but to tip them up one by one hoping that he will stumble upon Marion's basket (although why he didn’t focus on finding white European men carry a basket in a square full of Arabs is a question that has to remain unanswered).
Just as Jones notices the basket carrying Marion, the crowd parts and standing between Jones and his quarry is a rather finely dressed Arabian swordsman. After a brief display of swordsmanship, it is clear that this man is far superior with the sword than Jones. There is just one tiny drawback though; Jones has a gun. Casually pulling the gun from his holster, he shoots the swordsman dead and continues his search.
This is a pretty ordinary death, but it does pick up points for comedy value.
