Although the German Zeppelins could carry cargo (the Graf Zeppelin carried a car to South America), they were not equipped to carry and launch airplanes. Only the rigid dirigibles used by the US Navy could launch, retrieve, and house airplanes. However, the Indiana Jones films are largely intended as an homage to the movie serial segments of the 1930s-1940s, and some artistic license was clearly taken throughout the series for the sake of exciting action/adventure visuals and scenes. Additionally, some actual trapeze connection attempts on the Hindenburg were made in real life by World War I flying ace Ernst Udet, so this is not outside the realm of possibility. See more »

In the initial Theatrical Release of "The Last Crusade", Walter Donovan points to a Chest of Gold Items and says to the Sultan of Hatay "... donated by the finest Jewish families in Germany." In all subsequent releases of the film the word "Jewish" has been edited out of the dialogue. 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.
