"King Solomon's Mines" was a 1985 comedy-adventure film loosely based on the novel "King Solomon's Mines" (1885) by H. Rider Haggard. It stars Richard Chamberlain, Sharon Stone, Herbert Lom and John Rhys-Davies. It was adapted by Gene Quintano and James R. Silke and directed by J. Lee Thompson. This version of the story was a light, comedic take, deliberately referencing and parodying "Indiana Jones". It was filmed in Zimbabwe.

It was followed by what critics considered "a badly made sequel" for "bad-film enthusiasts" [http://www.mrqe.com/lookup?Allan+Quatermain+and+the+Lost+City+of+Gold] : "Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold" (1987).
