An art collector appeals to Indiana Jones to embark on a search for the Holy Grail. He learns that another archaeologist has disappeared while searching for the precious goblet, and the missing man is his own father, Dr. Henry Jones. The artifact is much harder to find than they expected, and its powers are too much for those impure of heart.Written by
Jeffrey Boam wrote a draft set in 1939. The prologue had adult Indiana retrieving an Aztec relic for a museum curator in Mexico, and featured the circus train. Henry and Elsa (who was described as having dark hair) were searching for the Grail on behalf of the Chandler Foundation before Henry went missing. The character of Kazim was named Kemal, and was an Agent of the Republic of Hatay, which sought the grail for its own. Kemal shot Henry and died drinking from the wrong chalice. The Grail Knight battled Indiana on horseback and Vogel was crushed by a boulder while stealing the Grail. In his second draft, Indiana's mother, named Margaret in this version, dismissed Indiana when he returned home with the Cross of Coronado, while his father was on a long distance call. Walter Chandler of the Chandler Foundation was featured, but was not the main villain. He plunged to his death in the tank. Elsa introduced Indiana and Brody to a large Venetian family that knew Henry. Leni Riefenstahl appeared at the Nazi rally in Berlin. Vogel was beheaded by the traps guarding the Grail. Kemal tried to blow up the Grail Temple during a comic fight, in which gunpowder was repeatedly lit and extinguished. Elsa shot Henry, then died drinking from the wrong Grail, and Indiana rescued his father from falling into the chasm, while grasping for the Grail. See more »

Everything clicks in this action-packed cliffhanger. In his third (and what for years what thought to be his last) adventure, Indy is on the hunt for that ultimate treasure, the Holy Grail. Along the way he must contend with Nazis, a secret brotherhood and, of course, snakes. Sean Connery is a wonderful addition as Indy's father, and the chemistry between he and star Harrison Ford may just be one of the best in film history. The movie is a true rarity in that its attempts to outdo each preceding chase sequence succeed. Though children might have trouble interpreting the plot, this crusade is one people of all ages will enjoy.
