** The nightclub where the movie begins is named "Club [[StarWars Obi-Wan"]]. In that scene the origins of Indiana as a derivative Film/JamesBond are very explicit and homaged, as he's dressed similarly to Creator/SeanConnery's Bond in ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''.

It comes full circle in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'' when Connery stars as Indy's literal father.

* CaliforniaDoubling:
** The filmmakers tried to avert this with regards to India, but the Indian government was too offended by the portrayal of their country and so the Indian exteriors were filmed in Sri Lanka instead. The Shanghai exteriors were done in {{UsefulNotes/Macau}}, which was still under Portuguese colonial rule at the time of filming. California filled in for a few more exteriors while the sound stages were, as always, built at Elstree Studios in England.
** In a DVD documentary, Spielberg notes that the climactic rope bridge battle was filmed on three continents. First, they had an actual rope bridge in Sri Lanka, built and destroyed specifically for the movie. After the bridge splits in half, the shots of Indy and Mola Ram battling on the side of the cliff were done at Elstree Studios in the UK. Finally, the shots of the alligators were filmed by a second unit in Florida.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: When he first appears, at the dinner scene, the young Maharajah speaks with a ''very'' plummy [[BritishAccents RP accent]]. However, much later on, after Shorty has beaten him up, he comes out with "Please leesten! To git out, you mast tek de lift tunnal!", in some sort of "ethnic" (Indian?) accent. Well, he was BrainwashedAndCrazy before.

** Lao Che cheats and tries to murder Indiana, but gets away scot free. And Indiana has no idea about it. There was a plan to have him return in sequel but it never came to fruition. He is probably the ONLY named Indiana Jones villain who is still alive at the end of the movie.
