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.

Jesse Huston (Sharon Stone) hires Allan Quatermain to find her father, believed lost on an expedition to find the fabled King Solomon's Mines. Together with his companion, the mysterious Umbopa, they penetrate unknown country, following a map believed to be genuine. It transpires that Professor Huston has been captured by a German military expedition on the same quest, led by Bockner (Herbert Lom), an archetypical single-minded knackwurst-munching, bald-headed Colonel and a ruthless Turkish slave-trader and adventurer, Dogati (John Rhys-Davies). Huston is being forced to interpret another map, also believed to be genuine.
The two rival expeditions shadow each other, clashing on several occasions, and finally enter the tribal lands of the Kukuana who capture them. After twice failing to kill Quatermain and Huston, Umbopa reveals his identity as an exiled tribal chief and defeats their greatest warriors in combat. As the tribemen submit to him, Gagool, an evil witch, flees into caves in the depths of a mountain, pursued by the leaders of the rival expeditions. They find mummified remains of the tribal queens and also vast quantities of raw diamonds.
Committing suicide, Gagool triggers off a series of booby-traps. Bockner and Dogati are killed by drowning and being crushed under rockfalls; Huston and Quatermain are trapped by rising water. At the last moment, water pressure breaks through the rockwall and they are spewed out to safety.
Leaving Mbopa to assume his royal position, Quatermain and Jesse, now in love, return home with the Professor, having secreted one diamond in their clothing as a souvenir of their adventures.
