In the prologue, young Indiana Jones (River Phoenix) discovers an artifact that "belongs in a museum." It gets stolen, then the adult Indy (Harrison Ford) embarks on a quest to rescue his cantankerous father Professor Henry Jones, Sr. (Sean Connery), who is the foremost authority on The Holy Grail. The Nazis are hot on the trail for the Grail, too - so Indy and his father get caught in a race against time to get to the Holy Grail first.
Revealing mistake: In the catacombs of the library, Indy and Elsa are waist deep in petroleum. Indy has a torch, and if you look carefully, you will see burning pieces of the torch fall and hit the petroleum. Wouldn't this start a fire as Kazim later on sets the cavern alight with a single match? (00:34:05)
