Treasure of the Peacock's Eye is the eighteenth film in The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. It was initially broadcast as the two-hour television movie Young Indiana Jones and the Treasure of the Peacock's Eye on January 15, 1995 on The Family Channel. While never actually released or aired as separate portions, the film can be divided into two episodes to each fit one hour of television: "London/Egypt, November 1918" and "South Pacific, January 1919".
Chapter 18 in the complete adventures of Indiana Jones finds Indy vagabonding around the South Pacific on a treasure hunt for a fabled lost diamond.
The war in Europe ends but a new adventure begins for Indy when a mysterious man's dying words -- "The eye of the peacock!" -- send him and Remy on a thrilling treasure hunt for one of Alexander the Great's most treasured possessions. Pursued by a dangerous one-eyed man, Indy follows the trail of the diamond from London to Alexandria to the South Seas where he has a run-in with a murderous band of Chinese pirates. The shipboard battle that ensues is a spectacular display of swords, guns and flying fists. Marooned by the pirates on a remote desert island, Indy is captured by savage headhunters, but before they can turn him into a shrunken head and cannibal stew, he is rescued by anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski and makes a life-altering decision.
