Continuity mistake: When the driver of the tank is shot and he changes the direction of where the tank is going, Indiana gets up, with his strap still stuck on the nozzle. However, in the next shot, he's become clear of being stuck. There's no way he could have gotten his strap undone so quickly.MooCow
Other mistake: After Young Indy runs out of the cave with the Cross of Coronado, when he whistles for his horse and jumps down, note the horse's facial marking and leg marking. When Indy mounts the horse it's a different horse, note its markings, and as he rides toward the circus train the horse has changed again. (00:04:55)Super Grover
Continuity mistake: Near the end, in the "Leap of Faith" scene, Jones steps off the edge of the abyss and discovers an ingeniously-camouflaged stone bridge. The camera pans to show the camouflage effect from another angle, and it's obvious that the stone bridge is only about one foot thick from one end to the other. Relieved, Jones scampers across to the other side, and the camera cuts again to show that the bridge is now a full three feet thick.Charles Austin Miller
Factual error: When Hitler signs the Grail Diary, in the screen and VHS release he signs Adolph, not Adolf. This mistake was corrected in the DVD release. (01:07:35)
Continuity mistake: On the ship near the beginning, after Indy drops the cross, water comes up and washes it towards the edge of the ship. It goes over a lip on the deck, inches away from falling over the side. However, when Indy goes to grab it, it's not over the lip. It's half on and half off.
Continuity mistake: When Elsa says "How dare you kiss me!" and starts kissing Indy, her hand is under Indy's ear, but when the camera angle changes to behind her in the next shot, her hand is now pressing his ear.
Continuity mistake: The tank turret is at a completely different angle when it shoots at Jones when riding his horse.
Continuity mistake: When Elsa's hand slips from its glove whilst Indy is holding on to her, Elsa falls and she is holding the glove in her right hand, but when she falls into the chasm, the glove has gone.
