Firewalker

A pair of down-and-out treasure hunters venture out for one last score in the Cannon Group’s answer to Indiana Jones! Martial arts superstar Chuck Norris and Oscar-winning Louis Gossett Jr are a hilarious duo of luckless adventurers searching for fame & fortune in J. Lee Thompson’s fast-paced & good-natured action comedy Firewalker. When a blonde beauty (Flash Gordon’s Melody Anderson) with a mysterious map walks into their lives, the trio embarks on a dangerous journey to Central America to find a bounty of Aztec gold. But along the way they’ll have to cross deadly jungles and navigate ancient temples while battling hungry critters and vengeful spirits!

King Solomon’s Mines

The greatest treasure known to man is about to be pursued by the boldest, most-daring hero ever seen on screen! Part thrill-seeking adventure, part Indiana Jones parody, the Cannon Group’s fun-filled adaptation of King Solomon’s Mines is overflowing with non-stop laughter and cliffhanger excitement! Richard Chamberlain stars as famed explorer Allan Quatermain, joining a whip-smart woman (Sharon Stone) in the search for her archeologist father. On a dangerous trek across Africa, they’ll have to contend with a very hostile German military, a tribe of very hungry cannibals and, not-least-of-all, EACH OTHER! Co-starring legendary character actor Herbert Lom and Raiders of the Lost Ark’s John Rhys-Davies.
