Continuity mistake: Short falls through the hole and there's a POV shot of his legs moving wildly while he cries "Help!" Then he is rescued by Willie and lifted up safely, his legs now still, and his nerves calmed. However, the very same shot of the wild legs and the cries for help from before is suddenly inserted, which makes no sense whatsoever.

Continuity mistake: When the pilot checks if Indy is asleep he holds the curtain with his thumb inside the cabin and fingers on the passenger part. From the opposite angle he holds it with the side of his hand, all fingers inside the cabin.

Continuity mistake: In the mine, Indy fights against a bearded bad guy, who throws a hammer backwards that lands on a worker's head, knocking him out. The workers are very close together in the wide angle, then equidistant in the close-up when the hammer lands, and then together again in the wide angle. Also the worker that falls unconscious is standing straight a frame later.

Continuity mistake: When Indy is first raising Willie up from the pit of lava, as he just begins to raise her up you can see that the eye hooks and rods that hold the cage are rising up out of the hole. However when we switch to the shot of Willie in the hole, she's just a few feet from the lava.

Factual error: Neither Willie nor the human sacrifice victim show signs of significant perspiration when being lowered to the lava. They should have been sweating profusely after being close to the lava.
