Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

  • Release: May 24, 1989
  • Director: Steven Spielberg

A rousing, heartfelt adventure

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is perhaps best known for its pairing of Harrison Ford as the title character and Sean Connery as Indy’s father, Henry Jones, Sr. The hard-nosed professor was a fitting match for the foolhardy archaeologist. With a playful chemistry as endearing as it is entertaining, The Last Crusade is led by these two cinema legends.

Produced as cinema began to enter the computer age, The Last Crusade helped literally bridge the gap to digital technology. The stunning visuals created by Industrial Light & Magic ensured that Indy and his companions would partake in an epic adventure rich in history and romance.

With speedboats, trains, planes, motorcycles, a zeppelin, and even a tank, Indy embarks on another globetrotting mission, this time to track down the elusive Holy Grail. Directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by George Lucas, The Last Crusade remains a favorite of moviegoers, and would be the last Indiana Jones adventure on movie screens for nearly two decades…

THE STORY

When Indiana Jones discovers that his father has gone missing, the archaeologist soon finds himself on an adventure to find the legendary Holy Grail. Disagreeable yet loving of each other, Indy and his dad set out together to evade a deadly opponent and his Nazi henchmen and perhaps recover one of history’s greatest secrets.

I suddenly remembered my Charlemagne. ‘Let my armies be the rocks and the trees and the birds in the sky.’

Henry Jones, Sr.
