Upon hearing from a private collector, Walter Donavan, that the mission for the Holy Grail went astray with the disappearance of his father, Indiana Jones and museum curator Marcus Brody venture to Italy in search of Indy's father. However, upon retrieving Dr. Henry Jones in Nazi territory, the rescue mission turns into a race to find the Holy Grail before the Nazis do- who plan to use it for complete world domination for their super-race. With the diary as a vital key and the map with no names as a guide, Indiana Jones once again finds himself in another death defying adventure of pure excitement. Written by
Henry Jones Sr. calls Indy "Junior" 16 times. He calls him Indiana only twice. He also calls Indy "son" 4 times and "boy" twice. Indiana tells his father not to "call him Junior" (or that) 3 times, and almost does a 4th but was interrupted. Indiana calls his father "dad" a total of 54 times, 4 times when his father isn't there. See more »
The sultan of Hatay says he will provide Donovan's group with various assistance and "tanks" ("You're welcome!"), yet only one tank is shown crossing the desert. See more »
Everything clicks in this action-packed cliffhanger. In his third (and what for years what thought to be his last) adventure, Indy is on the hunt for that ultimate treasure, the Holy Grail. Along the way he must contend with Nazis, a secret brotherhood and, of course, snakes. Sean Connery is a wonderful addition as Indy's father, and the chemistry between he and star Harrison Ford may just be one of the best in film history. The movie is a true rarity in that its attempts to outdo each preceding chase sequence succeed. Though children might have trouble interpreting the plot, this crusade is one people of all ages will enjoy.
