Allan Quatermain and the Lost City of Gold (1987) (part 2 of 5)
Cut to later, as the man is resting in a bed complete with the obligatory mosquito net that seems to come standard with beds in jungle adventure movies. Well, not exactly resting. He’s in the midst of what looks like one real bitch of a fever, and he’s frantically trying to get his words out.
Allan approaches, and evidently they know each other. The guy mentions streets of gold, and tells Allan to talk to a man named Swarma. Out of the blue, Allan asks the man if his brother Robeson is still alive, but it would seem the poor schmuck is in the final stages of Plot Point Character Death Syndrome, which means we’ll probably be getting a lot of gasping for the next minute or so. He starts crying out, and Jesse pulls Allan away.
