Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade

Continuity mistake: When young Indy says, "Cort├ęs gave away the cross in 1920.", the thief is holding it with both hands. A frame later he holds it with just one hand.

Other mistake: When Indy is atop the tank with his father, he is facing his father. Suddenly, they show a close-up of Indy's face, head-on, with the Nazi leader behind him swinging a shovel towards Indy's head in the background. Indy gasps, and ducks. How did Indy see the shovel being swung at his head if it was completely behind him?"

Factual error: In the 'The Last Crusade', the Germans and their lackeys use MP 38 or MP 40 submachine guns extensively. The MP 38 was still a new weapon in 1938, and not around in such large numbers to arm each and every soldier with it (total of 1 million MP38/40's vs. more than 20 million troopers in WW2).

Continuity mistake: When Indy and Elsa come up through the manhole their hair is sopping wet and messy. As they run to the boat their hair is magically styled and not sopping wet anymore.

Question: Are Indiana Jones and his father immortal at the end of the movie or does the grail's power become null and void when it crosses the seal? The knight said something like "The grail cannot cross the seal, that is the price of immortality." That makes it sound like they are not immortal at the end but I still want to check.

Chosen answer: They're not, no. An individual doesn't become immortal after one drink - it requires them to drink regularly in order to remain alive. So neither Jones has been rendered immortal, merely healed of any wounds that they might have. But your surmise is basically correct - as the Grail cannot leave the shrine, any individual wishing to use it to prolong their life must stay there if they wish to enjoy its effects.
