80s Adventure, Guess the film...

Another, guessthatmoviefilter. I watched snatches of a movie a long time ago and I have been trying to come up with what it was ever since. It's an 80s adventure film. It came around the same time as "The Little Shop of Horrors".

I remember it having a boy, a well, and a crystal ball. There was a Native-American dancing in the rain. This well, every time you put a bucket in, it would fill up with jewelry/gold when you reeled it back up.
Any ideas?

Not a movie, but there was an Amazing Stories episode in which objects lowered into a well were replaced with gold and jewels, but none of the other elements (boy, crystal ball, Native American) were in it.

Might you have mixed up the Amazing Stories Episode (had the well with the bucket filled with treasure by mysterious beings) with Solarbabies?

There are some images at the bottom of the link. The character Darstar is an Native American type dude. They all celebrate in the freed water at the end.

Response by poster: Thanks for the answers.
I don't believe it was either Amazing Stories or Solarbabies...

I don't know about the dancing indian, but perhaps the movie you are talking about is Child of Glass?
