Revealing mistake: When Indy and Kazim are fighting on the front of the boat, the front of the boat doesn't move at all when the huge propeller hits the rear of the boat.
Revealing mistake: The candles that adorn the wall in the Grail room do not appear to have a strong enough flame to put out the light they do that shines on the wall. In fact, it looks like there are electrical lamps just behind the candle. (01:49:20)
Revealing mistake: When the VW gets stuck on the front of the tank and is shot off, you can see that the car has no engine, no body in the car, and no clutch. Also, when the car is blown away you can see a wire used for the stunt fall right in front of the camera.
Revealing mistake: At the end a shadow appears on the cliff under Indy's shoe when he steps to the edge. This would not have happened if a solid but camouflaged bridge were there. (01:47:30)
Revealing mistake: When Walter Donovan is dying after drinking from the wrong cup, watch the over-the-shoulder shot where we see his hair grow long suddenly - for some reason, this shot was filmed in reverse, as the fire coming from the candles/torches behind Elsa is not burning upwards, but appears to be "sucking" back downwards.TedStixon
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)
Henry: Come on, Junior.
Indiana: Will you please stop calling me Junior?
Sallah: Please, what does this mean? Always with this Junior?
Henry: That's his name: Henry Jones, Junior.
Indiana: I like Indiana.
Henry: We named the dog Indiana.
Sallah: The dog? You are named after the dog.
Marcus: Can we go home please?
Indiana: I have a lot of fond memories of that dog.
