Sallah is a fictional character, a friend and colleague to Indiana Jones. Played by John Rhys-Davies, he appears in two of the four Indiana Jones movies; in Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. In addition, he also appears in the preshow video in the Disneyland attraction Indiana Jones Adventure: Temple of the Forbidden Eye, and voices the safety advisory in the attraction.

Raiders of the Lost Ark
In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Sallah fails in rescuing Marcus Brody from the Nazis, who captured him for the map that leads to the Holy Grail. Sallah takes Jones and his father, Henry Jones Sr. to the Nazi convoy. He later secures some camels for the trip back home, although Indy told him horses. It's revealed that Sallah has a brother-in-law after the Nazis blow up his brother-in-law's car. He captures camels instead of horses for compensation.

Deleted Scenes
Sallah will not be returning in the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, as Davies was not requested to appear in the film. This will be the second of four movies to not feature the character.
