* IronyAsSheIsCast: Creator/SeanConnery. Not only was he the first to play Film/JamesBond on film, he continued playing action-heavy badass roles [[BadassGrandpa well into his seventies]]. In this movie, he's an out-of-his-depth bookworm who more or less never throws a punch.

** Menno Meyjes submitted a script that depicted Indiana searching for his father in Montségur, where he meets a nun named Chantal. Indiana travels to Venice, takes the Orient Express to Istanbul, and continues by train to Petra, where he meets Sallah and reunites with his father. Together they find the grail. At the climax, a Nazi villain touches the Grail and explodes; when Henry touches it, he ascends a stairway to Heaven. Chantal chooses to stay on Earth because of her love for Indiana. In a revised draft dated two months later, Indiana finds his father in Krak des Chevaliers, the Nazi leader is a woman named Greta von Grimm, and Indiana battles a demon at the Grail site, which he defeats with a dagger inscribed with "God is King". The prologu. in both drafts has Indiana in Mexico battling for possession of Montezuma's death mask with a man who owns gorillas as pets.

** The second challenge in the Grail Temple was first planned to have tarantulas hidden under each wrong letter. Indy is shown being menaced by a tarantula crawling up his body, after stepping on the "J." While in post-production Spielberg decided the scene didnít had the impact he was looking for and he came up with the chasm under the stone tablets
* FakeNationality: Welsh Creator/JohnRhysDavies plays Egyptian Sallah, Irish Alison Doody plays Austrian Elsa Schneider, English Alexei Sayle as the Sultan of Hatay and English Creator/JulianGlover plays American Walter Donovan with an impeccable accent (but listen closely to when he talks about Hitler and the Nazis wanting "write themselves into the Grail legend. Take on the world" and you'll hear his accent slip a little).

** It would appear that SeanConnery originally had a very different characterization in mind for Henry Sr., stating in a promo interview for the film that as Indy's father whatever Indy does "I did it first and I did it better." This initial characterization Connery pitched in the interview does not match up with the characterization in the film, where Henry Sr. is more of an AbsentMindedProfessor and all around professional "bookworm", and while he does have his savvy moments, he spends much of the film fumbling and bumbling his way through the adventure.
