the jewel of the nile (US movie 1985)
The Jewel of the Nile is a 1985 romantic adventure film, and a sequel to the 1984 film Romancing the Stone, with Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, and Danny DeVito reprising their roles. Directed by Lewis Teague, the film sends its characters off on a new adventure in a fictional Middle Eastern desert, in an effort to find the precious "Jewel of the Nile."
synopsis:Like Romancing the Stone, the opening scene takes place in one of Joan's novels. But this time, instead of Joan's wild-west supercouple, Jesse and Angelina, Joan and Jack are the featured heroes. As the movie starts Jack and Joan are on an old sailing ship. They're getting married. Suddenly, pirates attack the ship. Jack leads a brief counterattack against the pirates, but eventually the pirates take the ship. Joan manages to hold them off by tossing a lit torch over a spilled barrel of oil, setting the deck of the ship aflame as the survivors get to the lifeboats. By the time Jack and Joan reach the lifeboats, there's only room enough for one more. Joan gives the seat to Jack and he leaves without her. Now she's alone and surrounded by pirates. It seems she's doomed. And then... click here for complete info.the link is the original source of the synopsis article,I just want to share it with the reader aside to my personal comment.
