Continuity mistake: When the three walk towards the palace, they pass by a wall with an elephant painted on. Round the corner, a guard stands 10 meters in the back. A frame later, the guard stands right next to the three. In the following shots he keeps appearing or disappearing randomly.
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: 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.
Continuity mistake: When Mola Ram is climbing the bridge, Willie and Short stand together; half a second later Mola Ram falls and Short has managed to climb up and move apart to let him pass by. Then a nano-second later, Mola Ram grabs onto a piece a wood and Short and Willie manage to stand together again.
