** 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.

** Donovan (whose actor played a Bond villain in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'') shoots [[BadassGrandpa Dr. Jones, Sr.]] with a Walther PPK. Not only does SeanConnery get shot, he gets shot by ''[[Film/JamesBond his own gun]]''.
** Also, the opening sequence has Indy getting Harrison Ford's scar (which originated in an auto accident) when using a whip for the first time as a teen.

** Several actors in the film were in Bond films before. Creator/JulianGlover (Donovan) was Bond villain Kristatos in ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly''; John-Rhys Davies (Sallah, who had been in the first film, granted) was [=KGB=] General Pushkin in ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'', and Alison Doody (Elsa) was Jenny Flex in ''Film/AViewToAKill''. Michael Byrne (Vogel) was cast much later in a small role in ''Film/TomorrowNeverDies'' (the Navy commander).

* CaliforniaDoubling: Most of the movie was filmed in England and Spain, where precisely none of it takes place. The biggest exception is Venice and even then most of the Venice boat chase was filmed in England. Also, Petra is apparently where the Grail resides.

* RealitySubtext: Sallah is quite surprised at Indy's true name and the origin of his nickname, "Dog? You are named after the dog!?". GeorgeLucas indeed named Indy after his pet dog, who was also the inspiration behind [[StarWars Chewbacca]].
