Trivia: Before production started and while the movie was still being planned, Harrison Ford was shown the original Indiana Jones costume from the first movie, and he has said he was pleasantly surprised that he could still fit into it perfectly despite being much older, so all doubts he might have had about "fitting into the role" went out the window.
Trivia: Among the artifacts that fall out of the crates Spalko and gang push aside in the warehouse scene is Moses's staff. Property master Douglas Harlocker modelled it after the staff wielded by Charlton Heston as Moses in Ten Commandments. Incidentally, the Indiana Jones videogame, 'Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings', is about Indy's quest for Moses's staff.

Trivia: The scene where Indy escapes a nuclear blast by hiding in a lead-lined refrigerator spawned the phrase "nuking the fridge", which is analogous to jumping the shark, an idiom to describe when a TV series has passed its creative peak and its overall output has begun to decline.
