     FADE IN:

 1   EXT. DESERT OF THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST - DAY                    1   

     A mountain peak dominates the landscape.

     TITLES BEGIN.

     Riders on horseback cross the desert. From this distance 
     they appear to be a company of Army Cavalry Soldiers.

     CLOSER ANGLES ON THE RIDERS

     reveal only details of saddles, hooves and uniforms. The 
     riders are silhouetted against the rising sun as they ride 
     into an ancient CLIFF PUEBLO.

     The OFFICER IN COMMAND raises his hand halting his troops.

                           OFFICER
               Dis-mount!

     RIDERS climb down from their mounts... and only now do we 
     realize that this is a TROOP OF BOY SCOUTS, all of them about 
     thirteen years of age. The "Commanding Officer" is only their 
     SCOUTMASTER, Mr. Havelock.

     One of the Scouts, a pudgy kid named HERMAN, steps away from 
     his horse, bends over and pukes. The other Scouts rag on 
     him.

                           FIRST SCOUT
               Herman's horsesick!

     A BLOND SCOUT, however, befriends Herman. He has a thatch of 
     straw-colored hair and the no-nonsense expression common to 
     kids whose curiosity and appetite for knowledge exceed what 
     they teach in school. Additionally, he has adorned his uniform 
     with an authentic HOPI INDIAN WOVEN BELT.

                           SCOUTMASTER
               Chaps, don't anybody wander off.  
               Some of the passageways in here can 
               run for miles.

     Two Boy Scouts climb up the rocky base of the cliff.

 2   INT. THE PASSAGEWAY - DAY                                      2   

     The two boys head down the passageway. It's dark, and the 
     temperature drops several degrees. Spiders have built huge 
     webs that get caught in the boys' hair.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                                                             p. 2


     HERMAN appears very uncertain as to the wisdom of this 
     enterprise, but he's drawn on by his companion's adventurous 
     curiosity.

                           HERMAN
               I don't think this is such a good 
               idea.

     LAUGHTER is HEARD; the Blond Scout pulls Herman forward toward 
     its source.

     The VOICES GROW LOUDER now as the boys get closer to their 
     source. The light of kerosene lanterns dances on the tunnel 
     walls ahead. The boys approach cautiously, careful to stay 
     hidden.

                           HERMAN (CONT'D)
               What is it?

     THIS IS WHAT THEY SEE:

     FOUR MEN digging with shovels and pick-axes. They have broken 
     into one of the pueblo's SECRET CHAMBERS... called "Kivas."

     The men are ROUGH RIDER (his name describes his dress), ROSCOE 
     (a Bowery Boy bully of 14) and HALFBREED (with straight black 
     hair that cascades over his shoulders).

     And the fourth man wears a LEATHER WAIST JACKET and BROWN 
     FELT FEDORA HAT. He has his back turned to us, but we would 
     be willing to bet anything that this is INDLANA JONES.

     However, when the man turns, and his face is illuminated by 
     the lantern's glow, we are shocked to discover that it is 
     someone else.

     We'll call him FEDORA.

     TITLES END.

     The TWO BOYS are mesmerized by what they see.

     Now we realize that the Blond Scout is actually young INDIANA 
     JONES.

                           FEDORA
               Alfred, did you get anything yet?

                           MAN
               Nothing. Dig in.

     Two of the men stand and look at ROSCOE who steps forward 
     holding a box in his hands.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                                                             p. 3


                           ROSCOE
               Hey, I've got something!

     Whoops from the other men.

                           ROSCOE (CONT'D)
               I got something, Garth!

     ROSCOE rushes forward and gives FEDORA the box. Fedora steps 
     toward a lantern resting on a rock.

                           ROSCOE (CONT'D)
               I got something... I got something 
               right here.

     More whoops from the other men.

     FEDORA puts the box on the rock next to the lantern. HALFBREED 
     pushes ROSCOE as he jumps with excitement. ROUGH RIDER steps 
     forward to look at the box as Fedora opens it.

                           ROSCOE (CONT'D)
                    (more whoops; then)
               Oh, look at thatl
                    (more whoops)
               We're richl We're rich!

                           HALFBREED
               Shut up. Shut up.

     FEDORA takes a BEJEWELED CROSS from the box and holds it 
     aloft. Fedora's comrades practically salivate at the sight 
     of it.

                           ROSCOE (O.S.)
               Well, we're rich, ain't we?

     INDY takes off his hat and looks down at the o.s. action.

                           HERMAN
               Indy? Indy? What are they doing?
               Indiana? Indiana?

                           INDY
               Shhh!

     FEDORA blows dust from the Cross, turning it in his hand, 
     silently appraising its beauty... and its value. He seems 
     aloof from the others; somehow superior to them.

                           HALFBREED
               Hey, we got to find more stuff to 
               bring back.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                             p. 4


     INDY stays hidden, but is astounded by what he sees.

                         INDY
                    (hushed; urgent)
                 It's the Cross of 
                 Coronado!  Cortes gave 
                 it to him in 1520!

     FEDORA continues to admire the Cross, then places it on the 
     rock next to its box and the lantern.

     INDY turns back to observe the men.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               That Cross is an important artifact.  
               It belongs in a museum.

     A look of resolve comes into INDY's expression, and he turns 
     back toward HERMAN.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Run back and find the others.  Tell 
               Mister Havelock that there are men 
               looting in the caves.

     HERMAN doesn't seem to be listening. Instead, he watches in 
     wide-eyed horror as a SNAKE SLITHERS ACROSS HIS LAP.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Have him bring the sheriff.

     INDY matter-of-factly picks up the snake and tosses it aside. 
     HERMAN gasps.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               It's only a snake.

     INDY grabs HERMAN's scout scarf and pulls him closer.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Did you hear what I said?

                           HERMAN
               Right. Run back. Mister Havelock.  
               The Sheriff. What, what are you gonna 
               do?

                           INDY
               I don't know... I'll think of 
               something.

     INDY releases the scarf, gives HERMAN a pat and Herman dashes 
     off. Indy sees the Cross on the rock next to the lantern. As 
     the Robbers continue to search for additional valuables,

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                                                             p. 5


     Indy is able to work his way unseen to within arm's reach of 
     the Cross...

     FEDORA looks over at the men digging in a hole b.g.

                           FEDORA
               Dig with your hands.

     INDY picks up the Cross.

                           FEDORA (O.S.) (CONT'D)
               Not with your mouth.

     As FEDORA stands watching the other men digging, INDY puts 
     the Cross in his pants and begins to pull himself up a rope 
     hanging nearby. As he climbs, Indy's feet break a wooden 
     beam, attracting the men's attention.

                           ROSCOE
               He's got our thing!

                           HALFBREED
               Get 'im!

     The three Robbers are so eager to get their hands on INDY, 
     they almost knock each other over in the attempt.

     Only FEDORA is unperturbed. He casts a disgusted glance in 
     the direction of his fleeing companions— then sets off after 
     INDY.

 3   EXT. THE  CLIFFS - DAY                                         3   

     INDY EMERGES from the darkness of the Pueblo into the 
     brightness of day.

     He pauses—squints—shields his eyes—looks in all directions.

                           INDY
               Mister Havelock!  Anybody!  
               Everybody's lost but me!

     He hears RUNNING FOOTSTEPS BEHIND HIM and dashes off. ROUGH 
     RIDER, HALFBREED, and ROSCOE are quick to appear and run 
     after him.

                           FEDORA
               There he is!

                           MEN
                    (AD-LIBS)
               Let's go! Let's get him! Let's go!

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     Indy jumps from one rock to another; the SCOUT TROOP HORSES 
     are below. Indy puts two fingers in his mouth and WHISTLES 
     for his horse, who trots over. Indy puts the Cross in his 
     belt.

     INDY PREPARES TO JUMP into the saddle. Hesitates. Then... he 
     JUMPS. But the horse moves exactly at the wrong moment and 
     Indy lands flat on his feet in a standing position. The impact 
     sends a shock wave up his body that rattles his back teeth. 
     Indy stands up and successfully mounts his horse.

     FEDORA AND HIS MEN ARRIVE at the roof's edge in time to see 
     INDY climb into the saddle and gallop off.

                           INDY
               Hyahl Hyah!

                           ROSCOE
               Hey! Come back here!

     FEDORA puts two fingers in his mouth and WHISTLES... and A 
     VINTAGE TRUCK AND AUTOMOBILE come ROARING OUT from behind 
     the Pueblo (Driven by two more gang members). Now we 
     glimpse...

     THE MAN IN THE PANAMA HAT

     The passenger in the car. His face is concealed by the hat's 
     wide brim. His arm is out the window, however, and we see an 
     olive-colored hand protruding from the sleeve of an expensive 
     white linen suit. He gestures to the Robbers, now in the 
     truck.

                           PANAMA HAT
               Come on. Get him!

     INDY SPURS his mount on to greater speeds but the autos not 
     only keep pace with his horse... they begin to squeeze in on 
     it.

     Speeding Autos. Thundering hooves. Rushing wind. Flying dust. 
     INDY crouched low and leaning forward in the saddle, his 
     heart pounding, his adrenaline pumping.

     INDY VEERS OFF in a new direction—toward a RAILROAD TRACK.

 4   EXT. A CIRCUS TRAIN - DAY                                      4   

     The train is barreling down the track. INDY rides up beside 
     it. He glances over his shoulder and sees the car and truck 
     gaining on him. No other choice... he

     LEAPS FROM HORSE TO TRAIN.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     He clings to the side of a BOXCAR, as HALFBREED and ROUGH 
     RIDER leap from the truck onto the train.

     HALFBREED tries to grab INDY, but Indy leaps onto another 
     boxcar. Halfbreed runs after him but Indy leaps from the 
     boxcar onto some covered boxes stacked on a flatcar.

     INDY loses his balance but regains it. With HALFBREED and 
     ROUGH RIDER still running after him, Indy enters the trap 
     door of...

 5   INT. THE REPTILE CAR - DAY                                     5   

     and finds himself CRAWLING on a CATWALK suspended from the 
     car's ceiling.

     Several feet below are NUMEROUS VATS containing all manner 
     of reptiles:

     Alligators, crocodiles, giant lizards, etc.

     Then, HALFBREED ENTERS through the trap door—followed by 
     ROUGH RIDER.

     Halfbreed grabs hold of INDY's feet, but Indy kicks at him 
     and he loses his grasp.

     INDY crawls away, toward an opening on the opposite side. 
     HALFBREED grabs at Indy's feet again; Indy rolls away and we 
     SEE large bins of squirming snakes.

     The combined weight of the three people is more than the 
     catwalk was intended for, and the BOLTS BEGIN TO RIP FROM 
     THE CEILING.

     Everyone holds their breath, afraid to make another move. 
     Too late. SEVERAL BOLTS TEAR FREE. HALFBREED and ROUGH RIDER 
     SCREAM... but it's Indy's end of the catwalk that DROPS 
     DOWN... PLUNGING INDY to the floor of the car.

     He lands hard, with a SPLASH into a vat of water... where he 
     finds himself eye-to-eye with an—

     ENORMOUS ANACONDA

     The head of this snake is so damn big, it looks more like a 
     Tyrannosaurus Rex.

                           INDY
               Oh...

     INDY jumps back in horror... only to land with a SQUISH into 
     the SNAKE VAT.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Oh... Oh...

     Hundreds of slippery, squirming snakes. INDY sinks into them. 
     They cover him.

     Engulf him. Almost smother him.

     INDY jumps out of the side of the vat, freeing himself.

     INDY locates a clean-out door at the bottom of the car and 
     uses it to escape.

     HALFBREED, meanwhile, tries to open the closed window of the 
     car. He groans.

     ROUGH RIDER moves to assist him.

                           ROUGH RIDER
               Here, let me.

 6   EXT. THE TRAIN- DAY                                            6   

     INDY stops, checks to see the Cross still lodged in his belt. 
     Suddenly he looks worried as he frantically reaches into his 
     shirt, REMOVES A SNAKE FROM IT And tosses it away.

     ROSCOE APPEARS atop the reptile car and manages to grab INDY. 
     Indy kicks at him. Roscoe grabs onto the side of the reptile 
     car as Indy moves on to...

 7   EXT. A FLATCAR - DAY                                           7   

     INDY climbs over canvas-covered circus equipment. ROSCOE 
     follows, grabbing a long stick with a hook on it. He reaches 
     forward and trips Indy, who falls onto the roof of the rhino 
     boxcar.

 8   INT. THE RHINO BOXCAR - DAY                                    8   

     as a lamp falls from the ceiling with the impact of Indy's 
     fall, hitting a HUGE BLACK RHINOCEROS.

 9   EXT. THE RHINO BOXCAR - DAY                                    9   

     ROSCOE grabs INDY by the ankle and yanks him off his feet. 
     The two struggle, rolling from side to side, coming perilously 
     close to rolling right off the edge.

     Things get even more serious when Roscoe PULLS A KNIFE.

     IN THE BOXCAR BELOW

     ... THE FEROCIOUS BLACK RHINO is becoming extremely agitated 
     by the commotion going on atop his cage. Finally, he raises 
     his head and THRUSTS HIS

     HORN THROUGH THE ROOF.

     BACK TO THE ROOFTOP

     as the horn SMASHES through the wood only inches from INDY's 
     head. Indy and Roscoe stare at the horn in amazement as they 
     continue to struggle.

     SMASH! The horn comes up again—RIGHT BETWEEN INDY'S LEGS.

                           INDY
               Holy smokes!

     INDY kicks ROSCOE away. Roscoe rolls to the edge of the car 
     but keeps from falling. Indy flips over onto his stomach.

10   EXT. THE REPTILE CAR - DAY                                    10   

     The WOODEN TRAP DOOR EXPLODES as a BULLET is FIRED from 
     within. The door is pushed open and HALFBREED and ROUGH RIDER 
     hurry out of the car.

11   EXT. THE RHINO BOXCAR - DAY                                   11   

     INDY gets to his feet—looks ahead—sees a WATER TANK alongside 
     the track directly up ahead. Indy gets an idea...

     In an instant, he calculates his approach—times the 
     distance—and LEAPS for the tank's WATER SPOUT.

     He catches it perfectly... but his velocity causes the water 
     spout to ROTATE A FULL 360 DEGREES. With INDY hanging on, 
     feet kicking, the water spout deposits him back on the train, 
     onto the ROOF OF A STOCKCAR, where he looks up to see FEDORA 
     walking toward him.

                           FEDORA
               Come on, kid. There's no way out of 
               this.

     As INDY edges away from FEDORA, a portion of the STOCKCAR'S 
     ROOF COLLAPSES and Indy FALLS THROUGH into the car below.

12   INT. THE STOCKCAR - DAY                                       12   

     INDY CRASHES down from above. Dust rises.

                           INDY
               Ohhh!

     INDY's eyes take a moment to adjust to the dark. A bit of 
     sunlight leaks in through the cracks between the boards.

     Then INDY sees it. At the far end of the boxcar. Rising slowly 
     to its feet... an AFRICAN LION. The Lion ROARS. The boxcar 
     walls shake. Indy gasps. Dust swirls up into the shafts of 
     sunlight.

     And INDY has one more surprise in store: The Cross of Cortes 
     has been dislodged from his belt during the fall...

     INDY glances around, sees a coiled LION TAMER'S WHIP hanging 
     on a nail. He carefully takes it down by the handle. The 
     Lion sees this and GROWLS SOFTLY.

     INDY swallows hard and gives the whip a try. It unravels 
     awkwardly, its TIP flying back and HITTING INDY IN THE FACE... 
     CUTTING his chin.

     The Lion GROWLS LOUDER. Indy quickly gathers up the whip, 
     wets his lips, and tries again. This time—success! The WHIP 
     CRACKS SHARPLY. The Lion BELLOWS and SWATS the air... and 
     steps back.

     INDY looks amazed and delighted. He CRACKS the whip again. 
     The Lion backs away even more. Indy inches forward—bends 
     down (never taking his eyes off the Lion)—picks up the 
     Cross—and steps back again, sweat pouring down his face.

     But now... how to get out?

     He looks up at the opening through which he fell and sees 
     FEDORA LOOKING DOWN AT HIM. Fedora extends his hand.

                           FEDORA
               Toss up the whip.

13   EXT. THE ROOFTOP OF STOCKCAR                                  13   

     FEDORA, assisted by HALFBREED and ROUGH RIDER, "reels" INDY 
     out of the Stockcar as the Lion ROARS and lunges and Indy 
     screams.

     The men, including ROSCOE, pull INDY through the hole in the 
     roof. He stands to face them as ROUGH RIDER points a gun in 
     his direction.

                           FEDORA
               You've got heart, kid.
                    (indicates Cross)
               But that belongs to me.

                           INDY
                    (takes Cross from his 
                    belt)
               It belongs to Coronado.

                           FEDORA
                    (overlapping)
               Coronado is dead. And so are all his 
               grandchildren.

                           INDY
               This should be in a museum.

                           ROSCOE
               Now give me that!

     ROSCOE makes a grab for the Cross—but INDY doesn't let go. A 
     tug-of-war ensues until a SNAKE WIGGLES OUT FROM INDY'S 
     SHIRTSLEEVE and WRAPS AROUND Roscoe's hand.

     ROSCOE SCREAMS BLOODY MURDER—releases his grip on the Cross 
     and tries to shake off the snake. This is all the opportunity 
     Indy needs. He LEAPS ONTO

     THE NEXT CAR.

                           FEDORA
               Don't let him get away!

     INDY swings down to the caboose. He sees a sign above the 
     caboose door reading

     "DR. FANTASY'S MAGIC CABOOSE."

                           INDY
               Magic?

     He glances back at the men and quickly opens the door to the 
     caboose, stepping inside.

     FEDORA puts out his arm, gesturing for the others not to 
     follow INDY.

                           FEDORA
               Hold it. Make sure he doesn't double 
               back.

14   INT. THE CABOOSE - DAY                                        14   

     which contains the circus MAGIC EQUIPMENT. INDY rushes to 
     the rear door of the caboose but can't open it. He hears 
     FEDORA coming, and dives into a MAGIC BOX.

                           FEDORA
               Okay, kid. out of the box.  Now.

     FEDORA smiles confidently and advances toward the box. The 
     box unexpectedly collapses; all four sides flop away... 
     revealing NOTHING. INDY has completely vanished.

     FEDORA is mystified, frustrated and angered. Then he feels a 
     breeze at his back.

     He turns and discovers that the caboose door is open. He 
     rushes out onto the balcony and sees:

     INDY RUNNING along the tracks, turning up a street of modest 
     clapboard houses.

                           FEDORA (CONT'D)
               Damn.

15   EXT. STREET - SMALL TOWN - DAY                                15   

     as INDY runs from the railroad tracks and approaches his 
     house we see the name "JONES" painted on the mailbox.

                           INDY
               Dad!

16   INT. THE HOUSE - DAY                                          16   

     INDY bursts through the front door holding the Cross in his 
     hand. A Husky BARKS as Indy runs past in search of his father.

                           INDY
               Dad!

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Dad!

17   INT. THE STUDY - DAY                                          17   

     INDY charges in. The study is cluttered with books. Pictures, 
     charts and maps clearly reflect the father's passion for 
     Medieval studies.

     PROFESSOR HENRY JONES is absorbed at his desk. In fact, he 
     is studying a very ancient parchment volume which lies open 
     on the desk. The page shows a beautifully illuminated picture 
     of what might be a stained-glass window. The sketch 
     incorporates a series of Roman numerals. The Professor is 
     not just studying it, he is copying it into his own notebook.

     We never get to see the PROFESSOR's face in this scene.

     So INDY CHARGES IN.

                           INDY

                           HENRY

                           INDY
               It's important!

                           HENRY
               Then wait—count to twenty.

                           INDY
               No, Dad. You listen to me—

                           HENRY
                    (now he shouts)
               Junior!

     No question who is the boss here. INDY gulps, his look says 
     "What am I going to do with this guy?" And obeys— starts 
     counting, VERY, VERY FAINTLY.

                           INDY
               One, two, three, four...

     Now we see what HENRY is concentrating on. We see his hand 
     sketching; then, he holds up one finger.

                           HENRY
               In Greek.

     INDY'S REACTION:

                           INDY
                    (louder, in Greek)
               One... two... three... four...

     An ancient car is heard arriving. Perhaps INDY glimpses it 
     going past the window. Anyway, it stops outside the house. 
     Two men sit in the front seat.

     HERMAN sits in the rear, BLOWING A TRUMPET.

     INDY's reaction: Trouble!

     HENRY is just finishing the sketch.

                           HENRY
               May he who illuminated this...  
               illuminate me...

18   INT. THE FRONT ROOM - DAY                                     18   

     The study door is just closing, INDY closing it behind him... 
     just as HERMAN comes through the front door, still playing 
     the trumpet.

     INDY reaches for the trumpet, pulling it from HERMAN's mouth. 
     Herman continues to spit—right into Indy's face. Indy 
     flinches.

                           HERMAN
               I brought the Sheriff.

     HERMAN means the SHERIFF, who now enters the house.

                           INDY
               Just the man I want to see! Now, 
               there were five or six of them.

                           SHERIFF
                    (interrupting)
               All right, son.

                           INDY
                    (overlapping)
               ... they came after... me...

                           SHERIFF
               You still got it?

                           INDY
               Well, yes, sir. It's right here!

     INDY shows the CROSS, more or less handing it to the SHERIFF 
     to make his point. The Sheriff takes it casually.

                           SHERIFF
               I'm glad to see that... because the 
               rightful owner of this Cross won't 
               press charges, if you give it back.

     FEDORA enters the house, followed by ROSCOE, ROUGH RIDER and 
     HALFBREED.

     He politely removes his hat and holds it in his hand. He 
     nods at INDY in a friendly manner.

                           SHERIFF (CONT'D)
               He's got witnesses, five or six of 
               them.

     The SHERIFF and FEDORA are in Cahoots The SHERIFF hands the 
     Cross to FEDORA. ROSCOE reaches in and takes it from Fedora, 
     then runs out the door.

                           ROSCOE
               Yahoo!

     As ROSCOE runs outside INDY sees—through the screen door—the 
     MAN IN THE PANAMA HAT waiting patiently beside the car that 
     is parked out front.

     Roscoe approaches and gives the Man the Cross—the Man hands 
     Roscoe some money in exchange.

     The SHERIFF tips his hat and leaves.

                           SHERIFF
               Good day.

     FEDORA remains behind for a moment. He turns and speaks to 
     INDY in an ironic man-to-man way.

                           FEDORA
               You lost today, kid, but that doesn't 
               mean you have to like it.

     Then, FEDORA takes off his hat and takes a step towards INDY. 
     He holds the hat by the crown, and puts it on Indy's head, a 
     show of respect and admiration for the boy. The hat blocks 
     Indy's face.

     CLOSE ON THE TOP OF THE FEDORA HAT

     The hat brim fills the screen. As the brim tilts up, WE SEE 
     the face of FULL GROWN INDIANA JONES.

     And... POW!... he's punched in the face while his arms are 
     pinned behind his back.

     FADE IN TITLE: "PORTUGUESE COAST—1938"

               Too small for two of us.

     THE MAN IN THE PANAMA HAT (years older now) removes the CROSS 
     OF CORONADO from Indy's belt.

     THE DECK OF A PORTUGUESE CARGO SHIP

     It's NIGHT. RAIN POURS down. We're in the middle of a violent 
     STORM AT SEA.

     Thirty-foot waves crash across the deck.

     The TWO PORTUGUESE SAILORS (who have Indy's arms pinned behind 
     his back) propel INDY across the deck toward the rail.

     As they pass a BUNDLE OF FUEL DRUMS, INDY uses the Two Sailors 
     as leverage to KICK UP HIS FEET and break open the CLAMP on 
     the metal bands that hold the drums together.

     INDY jabs his elbows into the stomachs of the startled Sailors 
     and rushes toward the MAN IN THE PANAMA HAT.

     PANAMA HAT sees INDY coming and hurries toward the ladder 
     that leads up to the bridge. Indy withstands the force of 
     waves crashing on the deck and makes his way to where Panama 
     Hat is climbing the ladder. He pulls him off the ladder from 
     behind the two men fall down on the deck. Indy takes the 
     cross back from Panama Hat.

     A sailor delivers a powerful blow to Indy's face, sending 
     the cross flying out of his grip and skittering across the 
     deck. Indy grabs a crowbar and fends off two sailors who 
     attack him from the sides.

     INDY sees that the Cross is about to be swept overboard. He 
     lunges for it.

     He SNATCHES UP the Cross only to be knocked down to the deck 
     by a giant wave.

     He struggles to his feet, managing to avoid the giant fuel 
     drums sliding across the deck around him.

     SEVERAL MORE DRUMS come INDY's way. He sidesteps them all.

                           PANAMA HAT (CONT'D)
               Grab him, he's getting away!  Grab 
               him!

     Indy turns around and pummels two sailors with one punch. 
     Indy sees a large Stevedore's hook above him and he climbs 
     up on crates to reach it. He grabs a hold of the hook and 
     uses it to swing all the way across the deck, narrowly 
     avoiding a huge wave behind him. He jumps into the rollicking

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     ocean, still holding onto the cross. On the ship, a giant 
     fuel drum rolls wildly, falling directly onto a crate of 
     TNT. The crate explodes, causing the entire ship to blow, 
     sending an enormous orange fireball into the sky.

     LONG SHOT - THE BOAT EXPLODING OUT OF THE WATER

     as bits of debris fall from the sky like rain.

     INDY BOBS UP

     in the water amid the debris, holding the Cross in his hand. 
     He grabs for something to keep him afloat. It turns out to 
     be one of the ship's LIFE PRESERVERS. INDY loops his arm 
     through the preserver.

     Only now do we see the FADED LETTERING on the preserver 
     revealing the destroyed ship's name and city of port:

     A SHREDDED PANAMA HAT floats past.

     INDY, dressed in professorial tweeds, stands before his class. 
     He turns to the blackboard with a piece of chalk and writes

               digging up the world.  We do not 
               follow maps to buried treasure and 
               "X" never, ever, marks the spot.

     MARCUS BRODY approaches Indy's classroom. He peers through 
     the window in the door to see INDY completing his lecture.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Seventy percent of all archaeology 
               is done in the library.  Research.  
               Reading.

22   INT. LECTURE HALL - DAY                                       22   

     BRODY enters the lecture hall and stands at the rear of the 
     room.

                           INDY
               We cannot afford to take mythology 
               at face value.

     The BELL RINGS. INDY stands at his desk as students begin to 
     disperse. A pretty coed puts a note on the desk.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Next week: "Egyptology."  Starting 
               with the excavation of Naukratis by 
               Blinders Petrie in 1885. I will be 
               in my office if anybody's got any 
               problems for the next hour and a 
               half.

     BRODY approaches as the last of the students leaves the 
     lecture hall.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Marcus!
                    (slaps his pocket)
               I did it!

                           BRODY
               You've got it?

     INDY removes the cloth-wrapped Cross from his desk. He places 
     it on the desk and takes off his glasses as BRODY examines 
     the Cross.

                           INDY
               You know how long I've been looking 
               for that?!

                           BRODY
               All your life.

               Well done, Indy. Very well done, 
               indeed This will find a place of 
               honor in our Spanish collection.

     INDY gathers up his books and makes his way toward the door.

                           INDY
               We can discuss my honorarium over 
               dinner and champagne tonight.

     He turns back toward BRODY, now holding the Cross.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Your treat.

                           BRODY
               Yes. My treat.

23   INT. INDY'S OUTER OFFICE - DAY                                23   

     Bursting with STUDENTS, all competing for his attention at 
     once: "Professor Jones!" "Doctor Jones!"  Etc., etc.

                           INDY
               Shush! Shush!  Shush!

     INDY shoulders his way to the desk of his secretary, an 
     overwhelmed Teaching Assistant named IRENE.

                           IRENE
               Doctor Jones! I'm so glad you're 
               back! Your mail is on your desk.  
               Here are your phone messages.

                           MALE STUDENT
               Doctor Jones, you promised... Doctor 
               Jones—

                           IRENE
               This is your appointment schedule.  
               And these term papers still haven't 
               been graded.

     INDY takes the term papers then turns to enter his PRIVATE 
     OFFICE. Students once again CLAMOR for his attention: "Doctor 
     Jones!" "Wait, Doctor Jones!"  "My grade!" "Sign my 
     registration card!"  INDY silences the mob with a raised 
     hand.

                           INDY
                    (very efficiently)
               Okay. Irene, put everyone's name on 
               a list, in the order they arrived, 
               and I'll see each and every one of 
               them in turn.

     The Students descend upon poor IRENE, each claiming to be 
     first. INDY slips into his -

     PRIVATE OFFICE

     where he goes to his desk and finds a thick envelope with a 
     foreign postmark on it.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
                    (softly; reading)
               "Venice, Italy."

     Then, INDY stuffs his mail into his coat pockets, goes to 
     the WINDOW, slides it open and STEPS OUT INTO THE GARDEN.

24   EXT. SIDE OF COLLEGE BUILDING - DAY                           24   

     INDY escapes through the garden.

25   EXT. FRONT OF COLLEGE BUILDING - DAY                          25   

     INDY walks briskly toward the street; smiling, enjoying his 
     freedom. As he arrives at the curb, a LONG BLACK PACKARD 
     SEDAN pulls up before him.

                           MAN (O.S.)
               Doctor Jones!

     THREE MEN step out of the sedan. Everything about them 
     bespeaks "G-MAN."

     The First Man steps behind Indy.

                           MAN (CONT'D)
               Doctor Jones?

26   INT. PENTHOUSE APARTMENT - DAY                                26   

     INDY is ushered into a large Art Deco apartment and left 
     alone. Numerous museum-quality artifacts are displayed around 
     the room. Indy takes this opportunity to examine them.

     After a moment, WALTER DONOVAN enters from across the room. 
     During the brief time that the door is open, we HEAR a 
     COCKTAIL PARTY going on in the next room: VOICES and SOFT 
     PIANO MUSIC.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     DONOVAN strides across the room toward INDY. Although in his 
     late fifties, Donovan has the broad shoulders and trim 
     physique of a much younger man.

     Dressed in a tuxedo, he exudes both confidence and power.

                           DONOVAN
               I trust your trip down was 
               comfortable, Doctor Jones. My men 
               didn't alarm you, I hope.

     He shakes hands with INDY.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               My name is Donovan. Walter Donovan.

                           INDY
               I know who you are Mr. Donovan.  
               Your contributions to the museum 
               over the years have been extremely 
               generous. Some of the pieces in your 
               collection here are very impressive.

                           DONOVAN
               Well, like yourself, Doctor Jones, I 
               have a passion for antiquities.
                    (beat)
               Have a look over here. This might 
               interest you.

     DONOVAN goes to a table where an object is wrapped in cloth. 
     He throws back the cloth revealing a flat STONE TABLET—about 
     two feet square, inscribed with letters and symbols.

     INDY looks impressed. He puts on his glasses to make a closer 
     examination.

                           INDY
               Well, it's sandstone.  Christian 
               symbol. Early Latin text. Mid-Twelfth 
               Century, I should think.

                           DONOVAN
               That was our assessment as well.

                           INDY
               Where did this come from?

                           DONOVAN
               My engineers unearthed it in the 
               mountain region north of Ankara while 
               excavating for copper.
                    (beat)
               Can you translate the inscription?

                                                       (CONTINUED)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Translating the inscription is no easy matter, even for 
     someone as knowledgeable as INDY.

                           INDY
                    (stumbling through it)
               "... who drinks the water I shall 
               give him, says the Lord, will have a 
               spring inside him welling up for 
               eternal life. Let them bring me to 
               your holy mountain in the place where 
               you dwell."

     Donovan pours champagne into several fluted glasses as Indy 
     reads.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               "Across the desert and through the 
               mountain to the Canyon of the Crescent 
               Moon, to the Temple where the cup 
               that—"

     Suddenly INDY stops and looks up at DONOVAN with a startled 
     expression.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               "Where the cup that holds the blood 
               of Jesus Christ resides forever."

                           DONOVAN
                    (reverently)
               The Holy Grail, Doctor Jones.  The 
               chalice used by Christ during the 
               Last Supper. The cup that caught His 
               blood at the Crucifixion and was 
               entrusted to Joseph of Arimathaea.

     INDY rubs his chin with a dubious expression as he takes the 
     glass of champagne DONOVAN now offers him.

                           INDY
               The Arthur Legend. I've heard this 
               bedtime story before.

                           DONOVAN
               Eternal life, Doctor Jones! The gift 
               of youth to whoever drinks from the 
               Grail.
                    (beat)
               Oh, now that's a bedtime story I'd 
               like to wake up to!

                           INDY
               An old man's dream.

                           DONOVAN
               Every man's dream.
                    (beat)
               Including your father's, I believe.

     INDY stiffens slightly at the mention of his father, nods.

                           INDY
               Grail lore is his hobby.  He's a 
               teacher of Medieval Literature. The 
               one the students hope they don't 
               get.

     The door opens and MRS. DONOVAN steps into the room. She's a 
     matronly woman in an expensive evening gown.

                           MRS. DONOVAN
               Walter, you're neglecting our guests.

                           DONOVAN
               Be along in a moment, dear.

     He leans over and kisses her cheek. MRS. DONOVAN sighs to 
     herself and returns to the party. INDY, meanwhile, has turned 
     his attention back to the Grail Tablet, obviously hooked by 
     its archaeological promise. He moistens his finger with 
     champagne and rubs it over the tablet. DONOVAN steps up next 
     to Indy.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               Hard to resist, isn't it? The Holy 
               Grail's final resting place described 
               in detail!

                           INDY
               What good is it?  This Grail Tablet 
               speaks of deserts and mountains and 
               canyons. Pretty vague. Where do you 
               start looking? Maybe if the Tablet 
               were intact, you'd have something to 
               go on. But the entire top portion is 
               missing.

                           DONOVAN
               Just the same, an attempt to recover 
               the Grail is currently underway.

     INDY has to shake his head at DONOVAN's apparent lack of 
     judgment.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               Let me tell you another "bedtime 
               story, " Doctor Jones.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               After the Grail was entrusted to 
               Joseph of Arimathaea, it disappeared 
               and was lost for a thousand years 
               before it was found again by three 
               Knights of the First Crusade. Three 
               brothers, to be exact.

                           INDY
               I've heard this one as well.  Two of 
               these brothers walked out of the 
               desert one hundred and fifty years 
               after having found the Grail and 
               began the long journey back to France. 
               But only one of them made it. And 
               before dying of extreme old age, he 
               supposedly imparted his tale to a—to 
               a Franciscan friar, I think.

                           DONOVAN
               Not "supposedly," Doctor Jones.

     DONOVAN produces an ANCIENT LEATHER-BOUND VOLUME with very 
     brittle pages. INDY views the manuscript with considerable 
     interest.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               This is the manuscript in which the 
               friar chronicled the Knight's story... 
               it doesn't reveal the location of 
               the Grail, I'm afraid...  but the 
               Knight promised that two "markers" 
               that had been left behind would.
                    (indicates the Tablet)
               This Tablet is one of those "markers."  
               It proves the Knight's story is true. 
               But as you pointed out—it's 
               incomplete.
                    (beat)
               Now, the second "marker" is entombed 
               with the Knight's dead brother. Our 
               project leader believes that tomb to 
               be located within the city of Venice, 
               Italy.
                    (beat)
               As you can now see, Doctor Jones, 
               we're about to complete a great quest 
               that began almost two thousand years 
               ago. We're only one step away.

                           DONOVAN
               We've hit a snag. our project leader 
               has vanished. Along with all his 
               research. Uh, we received a cable 
               from his colleague, Doctor Schneider, 
               who has no idea of his whereabouts 
               or what's become of him.
                    (beat)
               I want you to pick up the trail where 
               he left off. Find the man and you 
               will find the Grail.

                           INDY
               You've got the wrong Jones, Mister 
               Donovan. Why don't you try my father?

                           DONOVAN
                    (after a pause)
               We already have. Your father is the 
               man who's disappeared.

27   EXT. A RESIDENTIAL STREET - DAY                               27   

     A FORD COUPE speeds down the tree-lined street.

28   EXT. PROFESSOR HENRY JONES' HOUSE - DAY                       28   

     The Ford coupe pulls up in front of the house. INDY climbs 
     from the car and hurries up the walkway. BRODY is a step 
     behind.

                           BRODY
               Your father and I have been friends 
               since time began. I've watched you 
               grow up, Indy. And I've watched the 
               two of you grow apart.
                    (beat)
               I've never seen you this concerned 
               about him before.

     They climb the porch and notice that the front door is ajar. 
     They exchange a quick look of concern as they enter.

29   INT. THE HOUSE - LATE AFTERNOON                               29   

     INDY approaches the half-open front door.

                           INDY
               Dad?
                    (to BRODY)
               He's an academic.  A bookworm.  He's 
               not a field mans.  

     He pushes open the door. He enters the house and calls out.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Dad? Dad?

     INDY opens one half of the curtains dividing the hall from 
     the sitting room.

     We see the place has been ransacked.

     BRODY sees INDY's face and opens the other half.

                           BRODY
               Dear God.

     They walk into the room.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               What has the old fool got himself 
               into now?

                           INDY
               I don't know. But whatever it is, 
               he's in over his head!

     BRODY picks up some mail from Henry's cluttered desk.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Dad?

                           BRODY
               It's today's mail. And it's been 
               opened.

     INDY turns and sees the pile of torn papers and envelopes. 
     Then something hits him.

                           INDY
               Mail! That's it, Marcus!

     He immediately empties his pockets of his own mail taken 
     earlier in the day from his college office and finds the 
     envelope with the Venice postmark.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
                    (as he tears it open)
               Venice, Italy!

                           BRODY
               What is it?

     INDY uncovers a small book. It looks like a JOURNAL or DIARY. 
     Indy flips through it: Page after page of handwritten notes 
     and drawings. BRODY glances at it with great curiosity.

                           INDY
               It's Dad's Grail Diary. Every clue 
               he ever followed. Every discovery he 
               made. A complete record of his search 
               for the Holy Grail. This is his whole 
               life.  Why would he have sent this 
               to me?

                           BRODY
               I don't know. But someone must want 
               it pretty badly.

                           INDY
               Do you believe, Marcus?

     As INDY asks the question, he turns to a PAINTING on the 
     wall: A depiction of Christ on the Cross, his blood being 
     captured in a golden chalice.

     A SECOND PAINTING on the wall shows Eleventh Century Crusaders 
     plummeting to their deaths over a high cliff. One Crusader, 
     however, floats safely in midair because he holds the Grail 
     in his hands.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Do you believe the Grail actually 
               exists?

                           BRODY
               The search for the Cup of Christ is 
               the search for the divine in all of 
               us.

     BRODY sees that INDY is unsatisfied by this response.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               But if you want facts, Indy, I have 
               none to give you. At my age, I'm 
               prepared to take a few things on 
               faith.

                           INDY
               Call Donovan, Marcus. Tell him I'll 
               take that ticket to Venice now.

                           BRODY
               I'll tell him we'll take two.

30   EXT. AIRFIELD - DAY                                           30   

     A LIMO is parked beside a PRIVATE AIRLINER that bears the 
     DONOVAN CORPORATE LOGO. BRODY peers inside to DONOVAN and 
     INDY.

                           BRODY
               Tell me, what's going to happen when 
               we get to Venice?

                           DONOVAN
                    (overlapping)
               Don't worry. Doctor Schneider will 
               be there to meet you.

                           BRODY
                    (overlapping)
               Schneider?

                           DONOVAN
                    (overlapping)
               I maintain an apartment in Venice, 
               at your disposal.

                           BRODY
               Oh, well. That's good. Thank you.

     BRODY and DONOVAN shake hands. INDY steps from the back seat 
     of the limo.

     He turns back to Donovan and shakes his hand.

                           DONOVAN
               Doctor Jones. Good luck. Be very 
               careful. Don't trust anybody.

31   INT. AIRLINER - FLYING - DAY                                  31   

     INDY opens the Grail Diary and thoughtfully turns through 
     the pages. He stops at one page and glances at a PENCIL SKETCH 
     of what might be a stained-glass window. Below the sketch is 
     a SERIES OF NUMBERS.

32   EXT. THE PRIVATE AIRLINER - FLYING - DAY                      32   

     SUPERIMPOSED over a MAP that traces a course from New York 
     City to Venice, Italy.

     INDY and BRODY disembark from the Water Bus onto the Boat 
     Landing as other Gondoliers steer their boats in the water.

                           INDY
               Ah, Venice...

                           BRODY
               Yes. Uh, how will we recognize this 
               Doctor Schneider when we see him?

                           INDY
               I don't know. Maybe he'll know us.

     Suddenly a WOMAN comes up to him. Attractive features. Blonde 
     hair. Eyes that are bright and intelligent.

                           ELSA
               Doctor Jones?

                           INDY
               Yes?

                           ELSA
               I knew it was you—

     She looks at him with an appraising expression that is 
     brazenly flirtatious.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               —you have your father's eyes.

     INDY is instantly attracted to her.

                           INDY
               And my mother's ears. But the rest 
               belongs to you.

                           ELSA
               Looks like the best parts have already 
               been spoken for.

     INDY grins, enjoying the repartee. The WOMAN turns to BRODY, 
     who tips his hat.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               Marcus Brody?

                           BRODY
               That's right.

     The Woman, DR. ELSA SCHNEIDER, extends her hand to BRODY.

                           ELSA
                    (introducing herself)
               Doctor Elsa Schneider.

     INDY's grin fades. BRODY registers a look of surprise.

                           BRODY
               Uh... how do you do?

                                                          CUT TO:

34   EXT. VENICE CANAL - DAY                                       34   

     INDY, BRODY and ELSA walk along the narrow canal, lined with 
     buildings on either side.

                           ELSA
               The last time I saw your father we 
               were in the library. He was very 
               close to tracking down the Knight's 
               Tomb. I've never seen him so excited. 
               He was as giddy as a schoolboy.

                           INDY
               Who?  Attila the Professor? He was 
               never giddy, even when he was a 
               schoolboy!

     INDY can't take his eyes off ELSA. Perhaps he's feeling a 
     bit like a schoolboy himself right now. As they cross over a 
     bridge to the opposite side of the canal, Indy steals a flower 
     from a street vendor. He holds it out to Elsa.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Fraulein—will you permit me?

                           ELSA
               I usually don't.

                           INDY
               I usually don't either.

                           ELSA
               In that case, I permit you.

     INDY gives her the flower.

                           INDY
               It would make me very happy.

                           ELSA
               But I'm already sad—by tomorrow it 
               will have faded.

                           INDY
               Tomorrow I'll steal you another.

                           BRODY
                    (cutting in)
               I hate to interrupt you—but the reason 
               we're here—

                           ELSA
                    (interrupting)
               Yes. I have something to show you.

     She hands a slip of paper to INDY.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               I left your father working in the 
               library. He sent me to the map section 
               to fetch an ancient plan of the city. 
               When I got back to his table—he'd 
               gone—with all his papers—except for 
               that scrap which I found near his 
               chair.

     INDY extends the scrap of paper to BRODY.

                           INDY
               Roman numerals.

35   EXT. VENICE PIAZZA - DAY                                      35   

     ELSA leads INDY and BRODY into the large piazza. People walk 
     about and sit at tables in front of a large building.

                           ELSA
               Here is the library.

     They have arrived at the front steps of the library.

                           INDY
               That doesn't look much like a library.

                           BRODY
               It looks like a converted church.

     ELSA leads the way inside.

36   INT. THE LIBRARY - DAY                                        36   

     INDY, BRODY and ELSA enter, their heels CLICKING across the 
     marble floor.

     We notice, along with INDY and BRODY, that the library 
     contains many stained-glass windows.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           ELSA
               In this case it's the literal truth. 
               We're on holy ground.  These columns 
               over here...

     She indicates FOUR HUGE MARBLE COLUMNS that go from floor to 
     ceiling.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               ... were brought back as spoils of 
               war after the sacking of Byzantium 
               during the Crusades.

     INDY glances at the Columns, then notices a Stained-Glass 
     Window that depicts a Knight of the Crusades. Indy lingers 
     for a moment in front of the window.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               Now please excuse me. The library's 
               closing in a few moments. I'll arrange 
               for us to stay a little longer.

     The minute ELSA is out of earshot.

                           INDY
               Marcus—I've seen this window before.

                           BRODY
               Where?

     INDY whips out the Grail Diary and opens it to the sketch he 
     noticed in the airplane.

                           INDY
               Right here. In Dad's Diary.  You 
               see?

     BRODY glances at the Diary, then at the window—noticing that 
     the Roman numerals in question have been worked into the 
     window's design.

                           BRODY
               Look, Indy. The Roman numerals!

                           INDY
               Dad was onto something here!

                           BRODY
               Well, now we know the source of the 
               numbers, but we still don't know 
               what they mean.

     INDY and BRODY now see ELSA approaching. Indy quickly tucks 
     the Diary back into his pocket.

                           INDY
                    (explaining to Brody)
               My dad sent me this Diary for a 
               reason. Until we find out why, I 
               suggest we keep it to ourselves.

                           ELSA
               Find something?

     INDY doesn't reply. He's looking in five directions at once. 
     His eyes moving across the walls and ceilings—charged with 
     the thrill of discovery.

                           BRODY
                    (to ELSA)
               Uh, yes. Three, seven and ten.  That 
               window seems to be the source of the 
               Roman numerals.

                           ELSA
               My God, I must be blind

                           INDY
               Dad wasn't looking for a book about 
               the Knight's Tomb... he was looking 
               for the Tomb itself.

     ELSA wears a blank expression.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Don't you get it? The Tomb is 
               somewhere in the library! You said 
               yourself it used to be a church! 
               Look.

     INDY's eyes travel up one of the four huge marble columns.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Three.

     INDY looks again to the stained-glass window. He points.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Three!

     INDY has discovered that each Column is numbered with a Roman 
     Numeral. Indy hurries away toward Column VII. All BRODY and 
     ELSA can do now is try to keep up with him.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Seven.

     He points again to the stained-glass window.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Seven... Ten.

     He looks down to the scrap of paper in his hands.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               And ten. Now where's the ten?

     Look around for the ten.

     INDY walks past aisles of book-lined shelves. He stops, turns, 
     then looks down.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Three, seven and ten.

     He climbs a spiral staircase leading up to a LOFT and looks 
     down at BRODY and ELSA. The floor beneath their feet is an 
     elaborate tile design containing a huge "X"—visible only 
     from this higher angle.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Ten.
                    (wryly; to himself)
               "X" marks the spot.

     INDY rushes down the staircase and goes to the CENTER TILE 
     where the two sides of the X intersect. He blows dust away 
     from the tile and tries to pry it up, but cannot.

     INDY rushes past BRODY to a cordon held in place by a brass 
     stand underneath the stained-glass window.

     INDY raises the brass stand and timing his actions, hits the 
     tile precisely as the Librarian stamps a book. The Librarian 
     regards the stamper curiously.

     INDY continues to pound at the tile as the Librarian resumes 
     his stamping, still puzzled by the SOUND ECHOING through the 
     library.

     Finally INDY breaks the tile. As he bends to remove the pieces 
     of broken tile, a TWO-FOOT SQUARE HOLE IS REVEALED.

     Cold air and a wet, rancid smell escape from the hole.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Bingo.

                           ELSA
               You don't disappoint, Doctor Jones.  
               You're a great deal like your father.

                           INDY
               Except he's lost, and I'm not.

                           ELSA
               Lower me down.

     INDY is impressed with Elsa's spirit, and cooperates 
     agreeably—holding her by the hands and lowering her into the 
     hole. When her feet finally touch ground below, Indy releases 
     his grip on her and slips the Grail Diary to BRODY.

                           INDY
               Look after this for me, will you?

     Then INDY disappears into the hole.

37   INT. CATACOMBS BELOW LIBRARY - DAY                            37   

     INDY jumps down a steep step. He reaches back to help ELSA.

                           INDY
               Come on.

     INDY and ELSA glance around. This is really a horrid place. 
     Dark and dank.  foul smelling. Elsa turns. She removes a 
     cigarette lighter with a unique ivory four-leaf clover design.

     INDY and ELSA inspect markings carved onto the walls.

                           ELSA
               Pagan symbols. Fourth or Fifth 
               Century.

                           INDY
               Right. Six hundred years before the 
               Crusades.

                           ELSA
               The Christians would have dug their 
               own passages and burial chambers 
               centuries later.

     INDY takes the lighter from her and lights their way down a 
     dark passageway.

                           INDY
               That's right. If there's a Knight of 
               the First Crusade entombed down here, 
               that's where we'll find him.

38   INT. LIBRARY - DAY                                            38   

     THREE MEN carrying guns make their way down the spiral 
     staircase toward an unsuspecting BRODY. One of the Men, KAZIM, 
     raises his gun and brings it down hard on Brody's head.

                           BRODY
               Ohhhh. . .

     KAZIM gestures with his gun toward the now-unconscious BRODY. 
     The other two men take Brody's hands and drag him into one 
     of the book-lined aisles.

39   INT. ANOTHER PART OF THE CATACOMBS - DAY                      39   

     DECOMPOSING CORPSES rest in niches carved into the stone 
     walls. Grotesque skeletal remains with rotting linen stretched 
     across blackened bones.

     INDY holds the lighter up as he and ELSA inspect symbols 
     carved into the walls.

     ELSA spots a symbol cut into the wall that she doesn't 
     recognize. As she blows away some cobwebs:

                           ELSA
               What's this one?

     INDY only has to give it a quick glance to know.

                           INDY
               The Ark of the Covenant.

                           ELSA
               Are you sure?

                           INDY
                    (deadpan)
               Pretty sure.

     INDY holds the lighter up and he and ELSA enter another dark 
     passageway.

     ANOTHER PART OF THE CATACOMBS

     INDY steps to the wall and runs his hand over the stone. He 
     scrapes the cobwebs away to reveal the ROMAN NUMERAL "X."

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Watch out.

     ELSA now holds the lighter as INDY rams his shoulder into 
     the wall. The wall collapses on impact and Indy falls through 
     into another room.

     ANOTHER ROOM - THE CATACOMBS

     as INDY falls through the hole in the wall onto rocks 
     surrounded by bubbling, green, slimy liquid. More skeletons 
     surround him, resting in their carved niches.

     ELSA holds the lighter as she peers in at him through the 
     hole in the wall.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Petroleum. I could sink a well down 
               here and retire.

     INDY reaches up and tears a piece of cloth from one of the 
     skeletons, which breaks apart and falls into the oil-slick 
     water.

     INDY uses the scrap of cloth and a bone to fashion a crude 
     torch, which he then dips into the oily water.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Give me the lighter.

     ANOTHER PART OF THE CATACOMBS

     Using the cloth-wrapped bone torch to guide their way, INDY 
     and ELSA come upon a NARROW PASSAGEWAY. The water is knee-
     deep and TEEMING WITH RATS. Thousands of them Crawling on 
     one another's backs. SQUEALING.  Squirming. Thrashing in the 
     water.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Oh, rats...

     ELSA gasps as the rats scamper between her legs.

     INDY moves forward through the rat-infested water as ELSA 
     follows, still gasping in horror. Suddenly he slips into a 
     hole. Recovering his balance, he reaches out to Elsa.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Come on!

     She gasps once again, terrified. INDY lifts her and carries 
     ELSA as he moves forward.

     THE CATACOMBS - THE HOLE IN THE WALL

     KAZIM and his men step to the opening Indy made earlier and 
     shine their flashlights through to the rat-infested water.

     ANOTHER PART OF THE CATACOMBS

     More rat-infested water as ELSA, now walking again, follows 
     INDY through another passageway lined with skulls and bones.

     INDY reaches for a wall to steady himself and inadvertently 
     grabs a skeleton. A bone comes loose in his hand as rats 
     scurry about and leap at him from all directions.

     He takes a moment to compose himself, then steps across the 
     water to ELSA's side. He steps into the water, then reaches 
     up to help Elsa do the same.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Come here.

     LARGE BURIAL CHAMBER

     The chamber is flooded with black, briny water.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Look. . .

     In the center of the chamber, jutting up above the water, is 
     what amounts to an "island altar" on which SEVERAL ANCIENT 
     COFFINS rest. They move toward the altar.

     INDY and ELSA begin to inspect the ornately carved COFFINS 
     like the scholars of antiquity that they are. These are big 
     oak caskets held together by straps of etched brass.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               It must be one of these...

                           ELSA
               Look at the artistry of these carvings 
               and the scrollwork.

     One coffin is elevated above the others.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               It's this one.

     Together they begin to push on the lid—STRAINING and GROANING 
     until it slides away and BANGS against the stone platform.

     INSIDE THE COFFIN

     lie the DECOMPOSED REMAINS of a KNIGHT IN ARMOR. INDY and 
     ELSA look in...Elsa gasps.

                           INDY
               This is it!  We found it!

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Look— The engraving on the Shield. 
               It's the same as on the Grail Tablets 
               The Shield is the Second Marker!

     INDY unfolds a piece of paper and holds it over the shield.

                           ELSA
               What's that?

                           INDY
               It's a rubbing Dad made of the Grail 
               Tablet.

     The missing portion of the rubbing is completed by the shield.

                           ELSA
               Just like your father—giddy as a 
               schoolboy.

     INDY laughs.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               Wouldn't it be wonderful if he were 
               here now to see this?

                           INDY
                    (chuckles)
               He never would have made it past the 
               rats!  He hates rats!  He's scared 
               to death of them!

     CLOSE - A HAND

     as it lights a match.

     PULL BACK TO REVEAL KAZIM dropping the lighted match into 
     the oil-slick water.

                           INDY AND ELSA
               ELSA holds the torch. INDY looks 
               around. Listens. Something is wrong. 
               And then he sees the GLOW OF FIRELIGHT 
               dancing across the Catacomb walls.

     This is followed by THOUSANDS OF RATS FLEEING from around 
     the corner of the Narrow Passageway, STAMPEDING toward ELSA 
     and INDY—SHRIEKING and SQUEALING as they approach.

     The rats literally wash over them—like a rodent tidal wave—in 
     their efforts to escape a:

     HUGE ORANGE BALL OF FIRE

     ROARING around the corner hurtling towards them—feeding on 
     the oil slick; consuming the oxygen.

     ELSA SCREAMS.

                           INDY
               Get back! Back against the wall.

     INDY braces his back against the altar and TOPPLES THE COFFIN 
     with his feet.

     It CRASHES against the stone platform and SPLASHES into the 
     water.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Quick! Under it!

     They jump into the water beside the bobbing, overturned 
     coffin.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Air pocket!

     ELSA hesitates. INDY literally DUNKS her and pushes her 
     underneath.

     UNDER THE COFFIN

     ELSA surfaces into the air pocket created by the coffin, 
     SPUTTERING and SPITTING.

     Now INDY pops up into the air pocket. He looks at ELSA—they 
     are both soaking wet.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Don't wander off.

                           ELSA
               What?

     INDY disappears under the water and swims out from under the 
     coffin.

                           ELSA (CONT'D)
               What?

     UNDER THE WATER

     INDY swims, looking for an escape route.

     UNDER THE COFFIN

     The rats are beginning to force their way inside, swimming 
     through the water and climbing on ELSA, who squirms and 
     screams in terror.

     INDY pops back up through the water.

                           INDY
               I think I've found a way out.  Deep 
               breath.

     ELSA groans. They take a deep breath and both dive under the 
     water.

40   EXT. VENICE PIAZZA - OUTDOOR CAFE - DAY                       40

     Canal beyond.

     Cafe customers are startled to see INDY and ELSA climb out 
     of the sewer, wet and smelly. Indy looks around at the 
     postcard-perfect setting and smiles.

                           INDY
                    (wryly)
               Ah, Venice!

     Indy's delight, however, is short-lived since KAZIM and TWO 
     OTHER TURKISH AGENTS are running towards them with drawn 
     guns.

     He grabs ELSA by the hand and the two of them run down the 
     dock and LEAP

     INTO A MOTORBOAT.

41   INT. THE MOTORBOAT - DAY                                      41   

     INDY fires up the engine and pulls away from the dock... but 
     not before a Turkish Agent JUMPS in with him.

     ELSA grabs the wheel and begins to steer the boat while INDY 
     and the Turk trade punches.

42   EXT. THE HARBOR - DAY                                         42   

     Indy's Speedboat BOUNCES across the choppy waters heading in 
     the direction of the DOCKED STEAMSHIP.

     KAZIM and his men rush to TWO MORE SPEEDBOATS tied to the 
     dock.

     They chase after INDY.

     INDY grapples with the Turkish Agent. As Indy grips his arms, 
     we SEE a GUN in the Agent's hand. It FIRES.

     As INDY fights with the Turk, he becomes aware of the 
     Speedboats behind him and two enormous Freighters ahead of 
     him, joined together by two giant ropes.

     INDY, having gained the advantage, leans on top of the Turkish 
     Agent.

                           INDY
                    (to ELSA)
               Are you crazy?! You don't go between 
               them!

     ELSA can barely hear INDY over the noise of the motor.

                           ELSA
               Go between them? Are you crazy?!

     INDY finally delivers the punch that sends the Turkish Agent 
     flying overboard.

     Turning, Indy sees that ELSA has committed the speedboat to 
     a course BETWEEN the two Freighters, now being pushed even 
     closer together by a Tugboat.

                           INDY
               I said go around!

                           ELSA
               You said go between them!

                           INDY
               I said don't go between them!

     It's purely academic at this point since the hulls of the 
     the two Freighters loom up on either side of them like cavern 
     walls.

43   EXT. FULL SHOT - THE HARBOR - DAY                             43   

     One Enemy Speedboat chases INDY between the two Freighters. 
     But the Speedboat containing KAZIM veers off and goes around.

44   EXT. BETWEEN THE TWO FREIGHTERS - DAY                         44   

     It's a race for daylight as the two Freighters drift ever 
     closer to one another.

     Indy's Speedboat just manages to squeeze through the gap. 
     But the Enemy Speedboat EXPLODES as it is crushed between 
     the two Freighters, FLYING INTO THE AIR and SPLASHING back 
     down into the water.

     INDY AND ELSA

     spin their boat around in a sharp half-circle to see KAZIM'S 
     SPEEDBOAT appear racing toward them. He stands in the moving 
     boat, FIRING A MACHINE GUN at INDY and ELSA.

     KAZIM'S SPEEDBOAT

     matches Indy's move for move.

45   FULL SHOT - THE HARBOR                                        45   

     The two boats race across the water nearly side-by-side. A 
     CHATTERING MACHINE GUN from Kazim's boat SPLINTERS the wood 
     of Indy's boat, until finally the rear of the boat CATCHES 
     ON FIRE.

     The machine gun runs out of ammunition. KAZIM puts it down 
     and takes control of the wheel from one of the Turkish Agents 
     in the boat with him.

     As Indy's boat drifts toward the GIANT, TURNING PROPELLERS 
     at the STERN of ANOTHER STEAMER, Kazim's boat draws up 
     alongside and hits them. INDY steps into Kazim's boat. He 
     knocks one of the Turkish Agents to the deck, then turns his 
     attention to KAZIM. The two men trade punches as the boat 
     spins helplessly in the churning water.

                           ELSA
               No!!

     INDY kicks KAZIM in the face, knocking him into the water, 
     then pulls him back into the boat, now being SUCKED THROUGH 
     THE CHURNING WATER toward the Steamer's giant propeller 
     blades.

                           INDY
               Why are you trying to kill us?

                           KAZIM
               Because you're looking for the Holy 
               Grail.

                           INDY
               My father was looking for the Holy 
               Grail. Did you kill him too?

                           KAZIM
               No.

                           INDY
               Where is he? Talk—or you're dead. 
               Damn it, tell me! Tell me!

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           KAZIM
               If you don't let go, Doctor Jones, 
               we'll both die.

                           INDY
               Then we'll die.

                           KAZIM
               My soul is prepared. How's yours?

     By now half the boat has been chopped up into matchwood and 
     the blades are getting closer.

                           INDY
               This is your last chance.

                           KAZIM
               No, Doctor Jones. It's yours!

     The wind of the blades is on their necks. INDY grabs KAZIM 
     just in time and jumps... into the motorboat, driven by ELSA, 
     which gets alongside in the nick of time.

                           INDY
               All right! Where's my father

                           KAZIM
               If you let me go, I will tell you 
               where he is.

                           INDY
               Who are you?

                           KAZIM
               My name is Kazim.

                           INDY
               And why were you trying to kill me?

                           KAZIM
               The secret of the Grail has been 
               safe for a thousand years. And for 
               all that time the Brotherhood of the 
               Cruciform Sword has been prepared to 
               do anything to keep it safe.

     KAZIM pulls back his shirt to reveal a birthmark... or is it 
     a tattoo? Whatever it is, it's a cruciform sword; a Christian 
     cross which tapers down, like the blades of a broadsword.

                           KAZIM (CONT'D)
               Let me get off at this jetty.

     The boat is close to the edge of the canal. INDY gives ELSA 
     a nod, telling her to bring the boat in. KAZIM steps ashore.

                           KAZIM (CONT'D)
               Ask yourself, why do you seek the 
               Cup of Christ? Is it for His glory, 
               or for yours?

                           INDY
               I didn't come for the Cup of Christ. 
               I came to find my father.

                           KAZIM
               In that case, God be with you in 
               your quest. Your father is being 
               held in the Castle of Brunwald on 
               the Austrian-German border.

     KAZIM walks away.

46   INT. VENICE APARTMENT - DAY                                   46   

     CLOSE ON THE WATER-SOAKED PAPER IMPRESSION: The rubbing taken 
     from the shield of the Grail Knight.

     BRODY is giving it careful study while he dabs the lump on  
     the back of his head with an ice pack.

                           INDY
               How's the head?

                           BRODY
               It's better, now I've seen this.  
               It's the name of a city.  
               "Alexandretta?" Hmmm...

     INDY, wearing a bathrobe, leans over to study the impression.

                           INDY
               The Knights of the First Crusade 
               laid siege to the city of Alexandretta 
               for over a year.  The entire city 
               was destroyed.

     BRODY lowers the ice pack from his head and looks at INDY.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               The present city of Iskenderun is 
               built on its ruins. Marcus— you 
               remember what the Grail Tablet said. 
               "Across the desert and through the 
               mountain to the Canyon of the Crescent 
               Moon."

                           (PAUSE)
               But where exactly?

                           BRODY
               Your father would know. Your father 
               did know. Look. He made a map.

     BRODY picks up the Grail Diary.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               He must have pieced it together from 
               clues scattered through the whole 
               history of the Grail Quest.

     A map with no names.

     INSERT: A PENCIL-DRAWN MAP

     It covers two pages of the Diary. BRODY's finger moves across 
     it.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               Now, he knew there was a city with 
               an oasis due east. Here.  He knew 
               the course turned south through the 
               desert to a river, and the river led 
               into the mountains.  Here. Straight 
               to the canyon.  He knew everything 
               except where to begin, the name of 
               the city.

                           INDY
                    (solemnly)
               Alexandretta. Now we know.

                           BRODY
               Yes. Now we know.

                           INDY
                    (rising)
               Marcus, get hold of Sallah. Tell him 
               to meet you in Iskenderun.

     INDY closes the Grail Diary and puts it into the pocket of 
     his robe.

                           BRODY
               What about you?

                           INDY
               I'm going after Dad.

     INDY opens the door. His bedroom has been ransacked...the 
     mattress on the floor, the drawers turned out.

48   INT. HALLWAY - DAY                                            48   

     INDY approaches another door (Elsa's bedroom) and knocks.

                           INDY
               Elsa?

     He goes in.

49   INT. ELSA'S BEDROOM - DAY                                     49   

     ... and finds that Elsa's bedroom is in a similar ransacked 
     state to his own. The room is empty.

     He is worried for her, knocks and calls out:

                           INDY
               Elsa?

     He steps into the room and knocks upon the bathroom door.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Elsa?

     He opens the bathroom door, peering inside.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Elsa?

50   INT. ELSA'S BATHROOM - DAY                                    50   

     Elsa is standing before a mirror, wearing a silk bathrobe. 
     She gasps, startled, as INDY enters. He retreats back into 
     her bedroom as she reaches up to turn off a record player 
     sitting on a ledge above the bathtub.

51   INT. ELSA'S BEDROOM - DAY                                     51   

     ELSA joins INDY, waiting in the ransacked room. she looks 
     around in shock.

                           ELSA
               My room!

                           INDY
               Mine, too.

     She looks to INDY, who pulls the Grail Diary from his pocket.

                           INDY
               This.

                           ELSA
               The Grail Diary.

                           INDY
               Uh-huh.

                           ELSA
               You had it? You didn't trust me!

     She looks hurt and beautiful. She comes closer to him.

                           INDY
               I didn't know you.

     She's awfully hard to resist.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               At least I let you tag along.

                           ELSA
               Oh, yes. Give them a flower and 
               they'll follow you anywhere.

                           INDY
               Knock it off. You're not mad.

                           ELSA
               No?

                           INDY
               No. You like the way I do things.

                           ELSA
               It's lucky I don't do things the 
               same way. You'd still be standing at 
               the Venice pier.

     She stomps her foot angrily. INDY flinches. She starts to 
     walk away but Indy grabs her.

                           INDY
               Look, what do you think is going on 
               here? Since I've met you, I've nearly 
               been incinerated, drowned, shot at, 
               and chopped into fish bait. We're 
               caught in the middle of something 
               sinister here.

               My guess is Dad found out more than 
               he was looking for. And until I'm 
               sure, I'm going to continue to do 
               things the way I think they should 
               be done.

     He pulls her to him and kisses her.

                           ELSA
               How dare you kiss me!

     Now ELSA reaches for INDY and kisses him.

                           INDY
               Leave me alone. I don't like fast 
               women.

     But he embraces her, and ELSA begins to nibble at his ear.

                           ELSA
               And I hate arrogant men.

     INDY smiles slyly as they fall to the bed.

52   EXT. VENICE CANAL - DAY                                       52   

     A GONDOLIER SINGS as he steers his gondola carrying two 
     passengers past Indy's window.

53   INT. INDY'S BEDROOM - DAY                                     53   

     INDY lies on top of ELSA, kissing her. He stops for a moment 
     as he hears the

     GONDOLIER SINGING.

                           INDY
               Ahh, Venice.

     ELSA reaches up and pulls him back down to her.

54   EXT. ROAD THROUGH THE AUSTRIAN MOUNTAINS - DAY                54   

     A Mercedes-Benz glides through the sharp mountain curves. 
     This is SUPERIMPOSED OVER A MAP that charts their course 
     from Venice across Austria toward Salzburg.

55   EXT. CASTLE IN THE AUSTRIAN MOUNTAINS - DAY                   55   

     Storm clouds darken the skies. THUNDER EXPLODES in the 
     distance; lightning flashes. The Mercedes-Benz drives into 
     the courtyard of the formidable stone castle.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           INDY
               What do you know about this place?

                           ELSA
               I know the Brunwalds are famous art 
               collectors.

56   INT. MERCEDES-BENZ - DAY                                      56   

     INDY reaches into the back seat and retrieves his bullwhip.

                           ELSA
               What are you going to do?

                           INDY
               Don't know. Think of something.

     He glances up to the beret ELSA is wearing. She reaches up 
     and adjusts it.

57   INT. CASTLE ENTRANCE HALL - DAY                               57   

     A BUTLER walks to the door and opens it to reveal INDY and 
     ELSA standing outside in the rain. she now wears Indy's 
     fedora; Indy is wearing Elsa's beret.

                           BUTLER
               Yes?

     INDY, followed by ELSA, steps inside, shaking the water from 
     his overcoat. He adopts a Scottish accent.

                           INDY
               And not before time! Did you intend 
               to leave us standing on the doorstep 
               all day? We're drenched!

     As INDY says this he pushes his way past the startled BUTLER, 
     pulling a handkerchief from the man's pocket. ELSA follows, 
     taking off her coat. INDY SNEEZES HARD.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Now look! I've gone and caught a 
               sniffle.

     INDY dabs at his nose with the handkerchief as ELSA looks on 
     in amused amazement.

                           BUTLER
                    (coldly; with Austrian 
                    accent)
               Are you expected?

                           INDY
               Don't take that tone with me, my 
               good man. Now buttle off and tell 
               Baron Brunwald that Lord Clarence 
               MacDonald and his lovely assistant 
               are here to view the tapestries.

                           BUTLER
               Tapestries?

                           INDY
               Dear me, the man is dense. This is a 
               castle, isn't it? There are 
               tapestries?

                           BUTLER
               This is a castle. And we have many 
               tapestries. But if you're a Scottish 
               lord, then I am Mickey Mouse.

                           INDY
               How dare he?!

     Simultaneously knocking the BUTLER cold with one slug on the 
     jaw. The Butler falls against a wall tapestry, sliding down 
     to the floor, out cold.

58   INT. CASTLE HALLWAY - DAY                                     58   

     INDY and ELSA move cautiously and quietly down the wide, 
     vaulted hallway.

     APPROACHING VOICES ARE HEARD. Indy and Elsa creep past a 
     room full of NAZI SOLDIERS working around a large table with 
     a map atop it..

     INDY reacts to the sight of them.

                           INDY
                    (to ELSA; softly)
               Nazis. I hate these guys.

     INDY and ELSA continue down the hallway. Indy carries a gun 
     in his hand and his whip hangs from his belt. He steps to a 
     closed door and listens.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               This one. I think he's in here.

                           ELSA
               How do you know?

     INDY points out an ELECTRICAL WIRE.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           INDY
               Because it's wired.

     He studies the situation for a moment, then decides to enter 
     one of the other doors. He knocks at the door—there is no 
     response. He looks back at ELSA and enters.

59   INT. CASTLE ROOM - DAY                                        59   

     The room is dark and empty. INDY throws open the window 
     shutters and looks out. RAIN comes down in sheets. There is 
     a wide ledge beneath each window—

     but below that is a SHEER DROP. Indy wants to get out onto 
     the window ledge, which is several yards away.

                           ELSA
               Indy? Indy?

     INDY reassures her.

                           INDY
               Don't worry... this is kid's play.  
               I'll be right back.

     He leans out the window and wraps his bullwhip around some 
     wires that protrude from the castle wall above the next 
     window.

     He gives the whip a forceful tug to make certain it will 
     hold his weight.

60   EXT. THE CASTLE - DAY                                         60   

     INDY SWINGS from the window to the stone gargoyle.

     CLOSE ON THE WINDOW LEDGE

     A PAIR OF WOODEN SHUTTERS seals the window.

     INDY takes hold of the bullwhip with both hands, pushes off 
     with his feet...  swings toward the shuttered window with 
     his feet extended... CRASHING THROUGH THE WOODEN SHUTTERS as 
     a CLAP OF THUNDER disguises the noise.

61   INT. THE ROOM - DAY                                           61   

     INDY CRASHES THROUGH SHUTTERS AND GLASS into the room. The 
     broken shutters hang by their hinges. Rain and cold air whip 
     through the open window.

     No sooner does Indy get to his feet, than a VASE COMES 
     CRASHING DOWN ON THE BACK OF HIS HEAD.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     Stunned, INDY sinks to one knee... and Indy's father, 
     PROFESSOR HENRY JONES, steps out of the shadows.

                           HENRY
               Junior?

     INDY gets to his feet.

                           INDY
                    (a reflex)
               Yes, sir!

     This reply is a kneejerk reaction on Indy's part. Now they 
     look at each other.

                           HENRY
               It is you, Junior!

                           INDY
                    (an old familiar 
                    irritation)
               Don't call me that, please.

                           HENRY
                    (amazed)
               But what are you doing here?

                           INDY
               I came to get you! What do you think?

     NAZI VOICES ARE HEARD approaching. INDY and HENRY press 
     themselves against the wall, Henry still holding the broken 
     vase in his hand.

     INDY steps to the window and looks down. HENRY moves to a 
     lamp, holding the vase under the light for a closer look.

                           HENRY
                    (sotto, mumbled)
               Late Fourteenth Century, Ming Dynasty.

     HENRY is all about the broken vase which he still holds in 
     his hand. Father and son get onto crossed lines for a couple 
     of moments.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               Oh, it breaks the heart.

                           INDY
                    (quietly to himself)
               And the head.
                    (to HENRY, aggrievedly)
               You hit me, Dad!

                           HENRY
                    (referring to the 
                    vase)
               I'll never forgive myself—

                           INDY
                    (surprised, 
                    misunderstanding)
               Don't worry—I'm fine.

                           HENRY
               Thank God!

     HENRY has clearly been concentrating entirely on the vase... 
     he is examining the broken end carefully.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               ... it's fake. See, you can tell by 
               the cross section.

     HENRY throws the vase against the wall where it SHATTERS.

                           INDY
               No! Dad, get your stuff. We've got 
               to get out of here.

                           HENRY
               Well, I am sorry about your head, 
               though. But I thought you were one 
               of them.

                           INDY
               Dad, they come in through the doors.

                           HENRY
                    (laughs)
               Good point.

     INDY steps to the door and stands, listening.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               But better safe than sorry.

     HENRY slides his umbrella through the straps of his bag.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               Humpf—so I was wrong this time.  But 
               by God, I wasn't wrong when I mailed 
               you my Diary. You obviously got it.

                           INDY
               I got it and I used it. We found the 
               entrance to the catacombs.

                           HENRY
                    (excited)
               Through the library?

                           INDY
               Right.

                           HENRY
               I knew it. And the tomb of Sir 
               Richard?

     INDY nods.

                           INDY
               Found it.

                           HENRY
                    (breathless)
               He was actually there? You saw him?

                           INDY
               Well, what was left of him.

                           HENRY
                    (trembling with 
                    anticipation)
               And his shield... the inscription on 
               Sir Richard's shield...?

                           INDY
               Alexandretta.
                    (beat)

     It's a great moment in HENRY's life. He turns aside, lost to 
     himself for a moment, then turns to INDY with joy.

                           HENRY
               Alexandretta... of course... on the 
               pilgrim trail from the Eastern Empire. 
               Oh, Junior...

     INDY winces, and would interrupt but suddenly it's not the 
     moment.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               ... you did it.

                           INDY
               No, Dad. You did. Forty years.

                           HENRY
               If only I could have been with you.

                           INDY
               There were rats, Dad.

                           HENRY
               Rats?

                           INDY
               Yeah. big ones. What do the Nazis 
               want with you Dad?

                           HENRY
               They want my diary.

                           INDY
                    (interested)
               Yeah?

     INDY's interest is a moment which becomes important later 
     but for now it passes.

                           HENRY
               I knew I had to get that book as far 
               away from me as I possibly could.

     INDY's hand moves unconsciously to his pocket. His eyes turn 
     inward.

                           INDY
                    (thoughtfully)
               Yeah. . .

     Then... BAM!  The door is kicked open and three NAZIS enter. 
     One is an S.S. OFFICER. The other two are SOLDIERS with 
     machine guns. HENRY and INDY raise their hands.

                           S.S. OFFICER
               Doctor Jones!!

                           HENRY & INDY
               Yes!!

                           S.S. OFFICER
               I will take the book now.

                           INDY/HENRY
                    (simultaneously)
               What book?

                           S.S. OFFICER
                    (to INDY)
               You have the Diary in your pocket.

     HENRY laughs genuinely, believing himself to be laughing at 
     the expense of the S.S. OFFICER.

                           HENRY
               You dolt!  Do you think that my son 
               would be that stupid that he would 
               bring my Diary all the way back here?

     At which point an awful thought strikes HENRY.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               You didn't, did you?
                    (a beat)
               You didn't bring it, did you?

                           INDY
               Well, uh...

                           HENRY
               You did!!

                           INDY
               Look, can we discuss this later?

                           HENRY
               I should have mailed it to the Marx 
               Brothers.

                           INDY
                    (overlapping)
               Will you take it easy....!

                           HENRY
               Take it easy?! Why do you think I 
               sent it home in the first place?
                    (points towards the 
                    NAZIS)
               So it wouldn't fall into their hands!!

                           INDY
               I came here to save you.

                           HENRY
               Oh yeah? And who's gonna come to 
               save you, Junior??

     INDY's eyes blazes His nostrils flares He's so pissed off, 
     he literally RIPS A MACHINE GUN from the hands of one of the 
     startled soldiers... and for a moment we think he's going to 
     use it on his dad.

                           INDY
               I told you--

     He turns and sprays the room with machine gun fire, cutting 
     all three NAZIS to ribbons and blowing them backwards across 
     the room.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               --don't call me Junior!

     HENRY looks shocked and horrified.

                           HENRY
               Look what you did!!

     Indy grabs him and pushes him ahead.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
                    (aghast)
               I can't believe what you just....

62   INT. CASTLE HALLWAY - DAY                                     62   

     INDY leads HENRY down the hallway as he searches for Elsa.

                           INDY
               Elsa? Elsa?

     HE OPENS A DOOR AND ENTERS:

63   INT. FIRST CASTLE ROOM - DAY                                  63   

     INDY and HENRY rush back into the room where ELSA had been 
     left, only to find: A Nazi COLONEL HOLDING ELSA HOSTAGE.

     His name is VOGEL: a vicious-looking, lantern jawed brute. 
     One arm is wrapped around Elsa's waist, the other hand presses 
     the muzzle of a LUGER behind her ear.

                           VOGEL
               That's far enough Put down the gun, 
               Doctor Jones. Put down the gun or 
               the Fraulein dies.

                           HENRY
               But she's one of them!

                           ELSA
               Indy, please!

                           HENRY
               She's a Nazi!

                           INDY
               What?!

     INDY  is thrown. He doesn't know what to do. He looks at 
     ELSA, then back to his father. Everyone is yelling at once:

                           HENRY
               Trust me!

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           ELSA
               Indy, no!

                           VOGEL
               I will kill her!

                           HENRY
               Oh yeah? Go ahead!

                           INDY
               No! Don't Shoot!

                           HENRY
                    (to Indy)
               Don't worry. He won't.

                           ELSA
               Indy, please! Do what he says!

                           HENRY
               And don't listen to her!

                           VOGEL
               Enough! She dies!

     VOGEL jams the barrel of the luger painfully into ELSA's 
     neck. Elsa SCREAMS.

                           INDY
               Wait!  Wait!

     And then Indy gives in. He drops the machine gun to the table 
     and it slides across, SHATTERING GLASS. HENRY GROANS audibly.

     VOGEL releases his grip on ELSA and shoves her toward INDY. 
     She is propelled directly into his arms. He holds her tightly. 
     She buries her face in his chest.

                           ELSA
               I'm sorry.

     INDY comforts her.

                           INDY
               No, don't be.

     Her hand slips into his coat pocket and removes the Grail 
     Diary.

                           ELSA
               But you should have listened to your 
               father.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     She steps back next to VOGEL. INDY is stunned. HENRY gives 
     him his most withering look of reprimand.

64   INT. BARONIAL ROOM - DAY                                      64   

     A large baronial room decorated with ancient tapestries and 
     suits of armor.

     Firelight—from the giant fireplace—dances across the ceiling 
     and walls.

     INDY and HENRY are ushered in, hands tied behind back, 
     accompanied by VOGEL and ELSA and TWO NAZI GUARDS.

     ELSA crosses the room toward a high-backed chair facing the 
     fireplace. INDY and HENRY do not have the advantage of seeing 
     who is sitting in that chair. They only see a HAND REACH OUT 
     AND TAKE THE BOOK.

                           INDY
                    (quietly to HENRY)
               She ransacked her own room and I 
               fell for it. How did you know she 
               was a Nazi?

                           HENRY
               Umh?

                           INDY
               How did you she was a Nazi?

                           HENRY
               She talks in her sleep.

     INDY nods, and then the statement catches up with him. He 
     looks at HENRY with surprise.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               I didn't trust her. Why did you?

                           MAN IN CHAIR
               Because he didn't take my advice.

     The MAN IN THE CHAIR gets to his feet and turns, revealing 
     himself to be...

     WALTER DONOVAN. INDY and HENRY react with stunned expressions.

                           INDY
               Donovan!

                           DONOVAN
               Didn't I warn you not to trust 
               anybody, Doctor Jones?

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     DONOVAN smiles benignly and flips through the Grail Diary.

                           HENRY
               I misjudged you, Walter—I knew you'd 
               sell your mother for an Etruscan 
               vase.  But I didn't know you'd sell 
               your country and your soul to the 
               slime of humanity.

                           DONOVAN
                    (suddenly erupting)
               Doctor Schneider There're pages torn 
               out of this!

     ELSA rushes to DONOVAN's side. she takes the Grail Diary 
     from him. Elsa takes a look for herself—then glances up at 
     Indy.

                           ELSA
               This book contained a map—a map with 
               no names—precise directions from the 
               unknown city to the secret Canyon of 
               the Crescent Moon.

                           INDY
               So it did.

                           DONOVAN
               Where are these missing pages?  These 
               maps!  We must have these pages back!  

     HENRY gives INDY a look of surprise. Indy smirks.

                           ELSA
                    (to Donovan)
               You're wasting your breath. He won't 
               tell us. And he doesn't have to... 
               it's perfectly obvious where the 
               pages are...
                    (looking at Indy)
               ... he's given them to Marcus Brody.

     HENRY now wears a pained expression.

                           HENRY
                    (to Indy)
               Marcus?!  You didn't drag poor Marcus 
               along, did you? He's not up to the 
               challenge.

                           DONOVAN
               He sticks out like a sore thumb.  
               We'll find him.

                           INDY
               The hell you will. He's got a two-
               day head-start on you, which is more 
               than he needs.
                    (beat)
               Brody's got friends in every town 
               and village from here to the Sudan.  
               He speaks a dozen languages, knows 
               every local custom. He'll blend in. 
               Disappear. You'll never see him again. 
               With any luck, he's got the Grail 
               already.

     HENRY looks amazed and impressed.

65   EXT. TRAIN STATION - CITY OF ISKENDERUN - DAY                 65   

     BRODY disembarks from the train along with the other 
     PASSENGERS, a cross-section of ARABS and TUSKS.

                           BRODY
               Does anyone here speak English?  Or 
               even ancient Greek?

     A Man in the crowd holds out a cup of water to BRODY.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               No water, no thank you. No, fish 
               make love in it.

     BRODY continues through the crowd past various STREET VENDORS. 
     A Woman holds a chicken out to him.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               Thank you so much. No, I don't like 
               that. No, I really don't want... No, 
               no, thank you very much. No, thank 
               you, madam.  I'm a vegetarian.

     The Woman walks away, leaving BRODY alone in the crowd.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               Does anyone understand a word I'm 
               saying here?

     SALLAH shoulders his way through the mob toward BRODY.

                           SALLAH
               Mister Brody!

     They meet and hug, then begin to walk.

                           BRODY
               Oh, Sallah!  What a relief!

                           SALLAH
                    (laughs)
               Marcus Brody, sir. And where is Indy?

                           BRODY
                    (overlapping)
               Oh, he's in Austria. A slight detour.

                           SALLAH
               You are on your own?

     A Woman runs in and tugs on BRODY's coat. He waves her away.

                           BRODY
               Yes, but don't panic. Everything's 
               under control. Have you... have you 
               arranged our supplies?

                           SALLAH
               Oh, yes, of course. But where are we 
               going?

                           BRODY
               Oh, this map will show you. It was 
               drawn by, uh...

     BRODY searches in his coat pocket for the map as a SINISTER 
     MAN approaches.

                           SINISTER MAN
               Mister Brody?

     BRODY puts the map back in his pocket. The SINISTER MAN clicks 
     his heels and bows quickly.

                           SINISTER MAN (CONT'D)
               Welcome to Iskenderun. The Director 
               of the Museum of Antiquities has 
               sent a car for you.

     BRODY takes off his hat.

                           BRODY
               Oh, what?... your servant, sir.

                           SALLAH
               And I am his.

                           SINISTER MAN
               Follow me, please.

     The man turns and joins a SECOND MAN. BRODY and SALLAH follow 
     them.

                           BRODY
               My reputation precedes me.

                           SALLAH
               There is no museum in Iskenderun.

     The SECOND MAN overhears SALLAH. He and his companion turn 
     quickly.

                           SECOND MAN
               Papers please.

                           SALLAH
               Papers?
                    (laughs)
               Of course.

     SALLAH puts Brody's luggage down and glances at BRODY.

                           SALLAH (CONT'D)
               Run.

     BRODY does not run. SALLAH pats his clothing, searching for 
     his papers.

                           BRODY
               Yes.

                           SALLAH
               Papers, sir. Got it here.

     SALLAH laughs and pulls out a newspaper.

                           SALLAH (CONT'D)
               Just finished reading it myself.
                    (laughs; then, to 
                    Brody)
               Run!

     BRODY looks confused. SALLAH shows the newspaper to the SECOND 
     MAN.

                           BRODY
               Yes.

                           SALLAH
               Egyptian Mail. Morning edition.
                    (to Brody)
               Run!

                           BRODY
               Did you say...? Uh, uh...

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     SALLAH puts the newspaper in front of the SECOND MAN's face, 
     then punches him through the newspaper.

                           SALLAH
               Run!

     The SECOND MAN falls, knocking over a vendor's stand. SALLAH 
     and BRODY begin to run. SALLAH knocks the FIRST MAN into 
     another vendor's stand. The STAND COLLAPSES on impact.

     SALLAH grabs BRODY and pulls him through the crowded streets.

                           SALLAH (CONT'D)
                    (to Brody; pointing)
               Okay, okay, quick, quick, quickl 
               Hide in that door!  Hide in that 
               door!

     SALLAH points to a DARKENED DOORWAY, hung with a curtain, at 
     the top of a ramp. BRODY runs up the ramp, throws back the 
     curtain and disappears into the darkness.

     Then—METAL DOORS ARE SLAMMED behind Brody and we realize 
     that he has actually run into the back of a Nazi TROOP TRUCK.

     SALLAH runs after the Truck until he reaches a wall, then 
     leans against the wall dejectedly as the Truck drives away 
     with BRODY inside.

66   INT. CASTLE ROOM - DAY                                        66   

     The room is dark. Ancient, floor-length drapes cover the 
     windows. A HUGE FIREPLACE that's nearly large enough for a 
     man to stand upright in dominates one wall.

     The NAZI GUARDS have tied INDY and HENRY back-to-back in a 
     pair of chairs.

     ELSA and DONOVAN stand over them. VOGEL enters.

                           HENRY
               Intolerable.

                           VOGEL
               Doctor Schneider. Message from Berlin. 
               You must return immediately: a rally 
               at the Institute of Aryan Culture.

                           ELSA
               So?

                           VOGEL
               Your presence on the platform is 
               requested... at the highest level.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           ELSA
               Thank you, Herr Oberst.
                    (to DONOVAN)
               I will meet you at Iskenderun.

                           DONOVAN
               Take this Diary to the Reich Museum 
               in Berlin. It will show them our 
               progress, ahead of schedule. Without 
               a map, I'm afraid it's no better 
               than a souvenir.

     He hands her the Grail Diary.

                           VOGEL
                    (to DONOVAN, meaning 
                    Indy and Henry)
               Let me kill them now.

                           ELSA
               No. If we fail to recover the pages 
               from Brody, we'll need them alive.

                           DONOVAN
                    (to VOGEL, with a 
                    helpless shrug)
               Always do what the doctor orders.

     DONOVAN leads VOGEL out. The NAZI GUARDS follow. Once they 
     are gone, ELSA turns to INDY.

                           ELSA
               Don't look at me like that—we both 
               wanted the Grail, I would have done 
               anything to get it.  You would have 
               done the same.

     INDY shakes his head "no."

                           INDY
               I'm sorry you think so.

     She runs her hand down the side of his face. INDY pulls away.

     INDY and HENRY are still tied back-to-back of course. ELSA 
     bends to speak quietly into INDY's ear... which is near enough 
     to Henry's ear.

                           ELSA
                    (whispers)
               I can't forget... how wonderful it 
               was.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           HENRY
               Thank you. It was rather wonderful.

     She smiles and kisses INDY passionately. HENRY glances back 
     and looks rather disappointed.

     VOGEL appears to remind ELSA of her appointment.

                           VOGEL
               Doctor Schneider! Your car is waiting.

                           ELSA
                    (to INDY, after 
                    finishing the kiss)
               That's how Austrians say goodbye.

     ELSA exits. VOGEL stays behind for another moment.

                           VOGEL
               And this is how we say goodbye in 
               Germany, Doctor Jones.

     VOGEL punches INDY in the jaw. A hard and vicious jab that 
     snaps Indy's head around.

                           HENRY
               Ohh. . .

     VOGEL exits. INDY shakes his head clear.

                           INDY
                    (to himself)
               Ooooh... I like the Austrian way 
               better.

                           HENRY
               So did I.

                           INDY
               Let's try and get these ropes loose. 
               We've got to get to Marcus before 
               the Nazis do!

                           HENRY
                    (confused)
               You said he had two days' start.  
               That he would blend in. Disappear!

                           INDY
               Are you kidding?—I made that up! You 
               know Marcus—he got lost once in his 
               own museum!

     Indy and Henry are pulling at the ropes with great urgency.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Can you try and reach into my left 
               jacket pocket?

     HENRY is able to wiggle his hand towards Indy's coat pocket. 
     INDY squirms his body around towards Henry's hand.

                           HENRY
               What am I looking for?

                           INDY
               My lucky charm.

                           HENRY
               Feels like a cigarette lighter.

                           INDY
               Try and burn through the ropes.

     HENRY's fingers open the lighter and ignite the flame.

                           HENRY
               Very good.

     HENRY yelps as the cigarette lighter burns his hand. He drops 
     the lighter to the floor. Henry kicks at the lighter, trying 
     to reach it, but cannot. The rug starts to burn. INDY doesn't 
     know it yet.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               I ought to tell you something.

                           INDY
               Don't get sentimental now Dad—save 
               it 'til we get out of here.

                           HENRY
               The floor's on fire! See?!

                           INDY
                    (turns and sees)
               What???

                           HENRY
               And the chair.

                           INDY
               All right, move!  Move!  Rock your 
               Chair.  Do what I do.

     They begin to rock their chair legs, inching their way off 
     the burning carpet.

67   EXT. CASTLE - DAY                                             67   

     as ELSA is driven away. VOGEL and DONOVAN remain behind, 
     flanked by NAZI SOLDIERS.

     Another car pulls up and VOGEL holds the door open for DONOVAN 
     who gets into the rear seat. A LIEUTENANT approaches with a 
     written message for Donovan.

                           LIEUTENANT
               Etwas wichtig, mein Herr.

     DONOVAN puts on his glasses to read the message.

                           DONOVAN
               Well, we have Marcus Brody. But more 
               important, we have the map.

     A RADIO OPERATOR steps forward with yet another written 
     message for DONOVAN.

                           RADIO OPERATOR
               Aus Berlin, mein Herr.

                           DONOVAN
                    (reading)
               "By the personal command of the 
               Fuhrer. Secrecy essential to success. 
               Eliminate the American conspirators."
                    (to VOGEL)
               Germany has declared war on the Jones 
               boys.
                    (to DRIVER)
               Los fahren.

     The car drives off.

68   INT. CASTLE ROOM - DAY                                        68   

     INDY and HENRY are still in their chairs, tied back-to-back. 
     Indy tries to communicate with Henry, but each time he calls 
     him, the men turn their heads in opposite directions.

                           INDY
               Dad!

                           HENRY
               What?

                           INDY
               Dad!

                           HENRY
               What?

                           INDY
               Dad!

     Finally they turn their heads in the same direction.

                           HENRY
               What?

                           INDY
               Head for the fireplace!

                           HENRY
               Oh.

     BANGING, ROCKING and HOPPING their chairs, they work their 
     way INTO THE FIREPLACE—the only safe place from the now 
     ROARING FIRE.

                           INDY
               I think I can get these ropes off.

     Indy struggles to free his hands. His foot kicks out and 
     accidentally hits a metal grill that operates a Secret Door.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Whoops!

     The fireplace floor rotates like a Lazy Susan and Indy and 
     his father find themselves in the:

69   INT. RADIO ROOM - DAY                                         69   

     where a NAZI RADIOMAN wearing headphones sits at an elaborate 
     panel of dials, switches and meters, and a WOMAN stands over 
     a map plotting coordinates.

     Their backs are turned to INDY and HENRY.

     The floor begins to rotate again, and INDY and HENRY find 
     themselves back in:

70   INT. CASTLE ROOM - DAY                                        70   

     inside the fireplace, still tied back-to-back.

                           HENRY
               Our situation has not improved.

     INDY glances over his shoulder at HENRY.

                           INDY
               Listen Dad... I'm almost free.

     INDY's foot hits the grill again... and the fireplace rotates 
     to:

71   INT. RADIO ROOM - DAY                                         71   

     FOUR NAZI RADIOMEN and the WOMAN are still hard at work with 
     controls and coordinates. Suddenly the Woman looks up and 
     spots HENRY and INDY. She screams.

                           WOMAN
               Alarm!

     Now the RADIOMEN turn to see HENRY and INDY.

                           WOMAN (CONT'D)
               Schnell!!

     TWO NAZIS draw their revolvers and FIRE SEVERAL SHOTS at 
     INDY and HENRY

72   INT. CASTLE ROOM - DAWN                                       72   

     INDY and HENRY rotate into the room which is now an INFERNO. 
     The carpet, drapes and furniture are all ablaze.

                           HENRY
               This is intolerable!

                           INDY
               I'm out, Dad!

     INDY finally breaks free. And he immediately begins to untie 
     his father.

                           HENRY
               Well done, boy!

73   INT. RADIO ROOM - DAY                                         73   

     All FOUR RADIOMEN now have their guns drawn. They activate 
     the lever and begin to rotate through the Secret Door.

74   INT. CASTLE ROOM - DAY                                        74   

     The RADIOMEN appear in the fireplace on the other side—but 
     there is NO SIGN OF INDY AND HENRY.

     The RADIOMEN move cautiously toward the flame, shielding 
     their faces with one hand, holding their guns with the other.  
     Is it possible that INDY and HENRY escaped through these 
     flames?

     Not a chance.

     They've hidden themselves UP THE CHIMNEY. And now they DROP 
     DOWN, BEHIND the RADIOMEN.

     One of the RADIOMEN grabs INDY by the neck. As they struggle 
     they fall against the rotating wall and disappear into the 
     next room, leaving a frightened HENRY behind.

     HENRY presses against the wall, which rotates again. As he 
     disappears into the next room, a DEAD NAZI RADIOMAN swivels 
     into the room. The other NAZIS rush forward to him.

75   INT. RADIO ROOM - DAY                                         75   

     INDY picks up a BUST OF HITLER and uses it to jam the rotating 
     wall in place, sealing the NAZIS inside the burning room.

76   INT. CASTLE HALLWAY- DAY                                      76   

     Vogel strides purposefully down the hallway. He BARKS an 
     order, and TWO MORE NAZIS fall into step with him.

77   INT. RADIO ROOM - DAY                                         77   

     INDY grabs his whip, his leather sack and Henry's case from 
     a table. He hands the case to HENRY and they begin to run.

                           INDY
               Come on Dad.

78   INT. SECRET ROOM - DAY                                        78   

     INDY and HENRY step into an empty room.

                           INDY
               Dead end.

     HENRY looks horrified by what he's been forced to do as INDY 
     searches frantically for an exit.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               There's got to be a... a secret door 
               around. A passageway or something.

     INDY begins to run his hands over the walls—frantic.

                           HENRY
               I find that if I just sit down and 
               think...

     HENRY sits on a chair which tips back, hitting the wall behind 
     it. The floor at INDY's feet suddenly begins DROPPING AWAY!  
     INDY grabs a railing to keep from falling, but loses his 
     grip and plunges through the opening which has formed a SPIRAL 
     STAIRCASE. He rolls down the stairs.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           INDY
               Dad!

                           HENRY
               ... the solution presents itself.

     HENRY follows INDY down the staircase.

79   INT. CAVERN/UNDERGROUND HARBOR - DAY                          79   

     The stairway deposits Indy and Henry into an enormous WATERY 
     CAVERN beneath the mountain on which the castle was built.

     A full-scale Nazi BOAT DOCK has been built inside the cavern. 
     We see MOTORBOATS, GUNBOATS, SUPPLY BOATS, etc.

                           INDY
               Great. More boats.

     INDY boards one of the motorboats and STARTS THE MOTOR.

                           HENRY
               Would you say this has been just 
               another typical day for you? Huh?

     HENRY tosses his case at INDY who catches it and angrily 
     throws it back to his father.

                           INDY
                    (ironically)
               Ooof!  No! It's been better than 
               most.

     INDY moves back to the dock and pushes the boat away. HENRY 
     looks confused.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Come on, Dad. Come on!

                           HENRY
               What about the boat? We're not going 
               on the boat?

80   INT. SECRET ROOM - DAY                                        80   

     VOGEL and the NAZI SOLDIERS enter the room and spot the spiral 
     staircase leading below. They quickly descend the stairs.

81   INT. CAVERN/UNDERGROUND HARBOR - DAY                          81   

     as VOGEL and the NAZI SOLDIERS rush to the dock. Vogel sees 
     that a motorboat is missing. He orders the Nazi Soldiers 
     into a boat.

                           VOGEL
               Sie alle ins Boat. Schnell!

     CAMERA PULLS BACK TO REVEAL a large box which suddenly BREAKS 
     APART as INDY, now on a motorbike with HENRY in the sidecar, 
     ROARS PAST THE DOCK, hitting TWO NAZI SOLDIERS who scream as 
     they fall into the river.

     VOGEL screams after INDY and HENRY as they drive off.

     STRAIGHT CUT TO:

82   EXT. COUNTRY ROAD - DAY                                       82   

     INDY looks pleased as he drives the motorbike along the road, 
     but HENRY appears worried.

                           INDY
               Ha!

     FOUR NAZI SOLDIERS ON MOTORCYCLES

     They chase down the road after INDY and HENRY.

     INDY turns the motorbike down a smaller, dusty tree-lined 
     road. HENRY gasps as he is jostled about in the sidecar. One 
     of the NAZI SOLDIERS gives chase along a higher road running 
     in the same direction.

83   EXT. ROAD BARRICADE - DAY                                     83   

     INDY approaches the barricade from one direction as one of 
     the NAZI SOLDIERS approaches from a higher road.

     A GUARD steps from the road station and calls to the vehicles 
     as INDY and

     HENRY SMASH THROUGH THE BARRICADE.

                           GUARD
               Halt! Halt!

     THE NAZI SOLDIER rides his motorcycle through the other side 
     of the barrier--

     IT SHATTERS.

     INDY AND HENRY

     INDY grabs at a FLAGPOLE as they roar past—it snaps off in 
     his hand.

     The NAZI SOLDIER drives his motorcycle toward INDY and HENRY. 
     He unshoulders his machine gun.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     INDY uses the broken flagpole as a lance and knocks the NAZI 
     SOLDIER from his motorcycle.

     THE RIDERLESS MOTORCYCLE drives on toward the other NAZI 
     SOLDIERS now approaching the guardhouse,

     COLLIDING WITH TWO OF THEM.

     The remaining NAZI SOLDIER maneuvers his motorcycle around 
     his fallen comrades and continues the chase.

     INDY AND HENRY

     As the remaining NAZI SOLDIER rides alongside their motorbike 
     he cocks his gun, preparing to fire.

     INDY quickly jams the remaining portion of the flagpole 
     through the spokes of the Nazi's front wheel.

     The NAZI SOLDIER'S MOTORCYCLE FLIPS THREE TIMES, throwing 
     him high into the air.

     INDY glances back and smiles, but the smile fades as he looks 
     forward again to see a sign at a CROSSROAD. Arrows pointing 
     in opposite directions indicate the way to BERLIN or VENEDIG.

     Indy starts down the road marked VENEDIG.

                           HENRY
               Stop!

                           INDY
               What?

                           HENRY
               Stop! Stop!

     The motorbike skids to a stop.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               You're going the wrong Way!  We have 
               to get to Berlin!

                           INDY
                    (pointing towards 
                    Venedig)
               Brody's this way.

                           HENRY
               My Diary's in Berlin.

                           INDY
               You don't need the Diary, Dad.  Marcus 
               has the map.

                           HENRY
               There is more in the Diary than just 
               the map.

                           INDY
               All right Dad—tell me.

                           HENRY
               Well, he who finds the Grail must 
               face the final challenge.

                           INDY
               What final challenge?

                           HENRY
               Three devices of such lethal cunning.

                           INDY
               Booby traps?

                           HENRY
               Oh, yes. But I found the clues that 
               will safely take us through, in the 
               Chronicles of St. Anselm.

                           INDY
               But what are they? Can't you remember?

                           HENRY
               I wrote them down in my Diary so 
               that I wouldn't have to remember

                           INDY
               Half the German Army's on our tail 
               and you want me to go to Berlin? 
               Into the lion's den?

                           HENRY
               Yes! The only thing that matters is 
               the Grail.

                           INDY
               What about Marcus?

                           HENRY
               Marcus would agree with me.

                           INDY
               Two selfless martyrs. Jesus Christ!

      

     HENRY slaps him across the face. INDY is rocked to his 
     foundations, not by any means entirely by the blow itself.

                           HENRY
               That's for blasphemy. The quest for 
               the Grail is not archaeology.  It's 
               a race against evil.  If it is 
               captured by the Nazis, the armies of 
               darkness will march all over the 
               face of the earth.  Do you understand 
               me?

                           INDY
               This is an obsession Dad. I never 
               understood it. Never. Neither did 
               Mom.

                           HENRY
               Oh yes, she did. Only too well.  
               Nfortunately she kept her illness 
               from me until all I could do was 
               mourn her.

84   EXT. CROSSROADS - DAY                                         84   

     Arrows point in opposite directions to VENICE and BERLIN. 
     The CAMERA MOVES IN on the portion of the sign reading BERLIN.

85   EXT. CITY SQUARE - BERLIN - NIGHT                             85   

     A Nazi Rally—a book-burning is in process.

     The mound of burning books is ten feet tall and growing by 
     the minute as College Students and Nazi Brownshirts 
     continually toss more books onto the fire.

     Flags, banners and standards displaying the swastika are 
     waved rhythmically from side to side in a motion that echoes 
     the mounting frenzy of the enormous crowd.

     INDY and HENRY walk toward the Square. Indy wears the uniform 
     of a Nazi Soldier. He is now buttoning up the tunic—which 
     happens to be several sizes too big.

                           HENRY
               My boy, we are Pilgrims in an unholy 
               land.

     Then... Indy sees something that makes him stop in his tracks. 
     WE PAN ALONG

     HIS LINE OF SIGHT TO:

     THE PODIUM

     where high-ranking Officers of the Third Reich stand flanking 
     ADOLF HITLER as they oversee the rally.

     ANOTHER ANGLE

     ELSA is walking away in an open area, background of torches, 
     vehicles, Nazi Officers... one of whom is now none other 
     than INDY, coming up to her before she knows he is there. 
     His voice is quiet and tough, his eyes hard.

                           INDY
               Fraulein Doctor. Where is it?

     Still startled, her reaction makes it clear that Indy is 
     even now a lover in her thoughts.

                           ELSA
               How did you get here?

                           INDY
               Where is it? I want it.

     INDY pushes ELSA against a column and begins to search her 
     clothing for the Diary. He pulls the book from Elsa's pocket.

                           ELSA
               You came back for the book?  Whv?

                           INDY
               My father didn't want it incinerated.

     She understands him. It's as though he slapped her.

                           ELSA
               Is that what you think of me?  I 
               believe in the Grail, not the 
               Swastika.

                           INDY
                    (vicious)
               Yet you stood up to be counted with 
               the enemy of everything the Grail 
               stands for—who gives a damn what you 
               think?

                           ELSA
                    (hard and fast)
               You do.

     Now it's as though she'd slapped him back. His hands fly to 
     her neck.

                           INDY
               All I have to do is squeeze.

                           ELSA
               All I have to do is scream.

     It's a standoff emotionally. He knows he'd never do it. she 
     knows it too. And the same goes for screaming.

     INDY releases her and backs away. she looks at him with a 
     lover's pain. He moves over to HENRY.

                           INDY
               I've got it. Let's get the hell out 
               of here.

     They move off and almost run headlong into HITLER and his 
     entire entourage coming down from the Podium. 50 kids push 
     their autograph books for Hitler's signature.

     HITLER pauses to sign them. Hitler looks Indy's way. They 
     make eye contact. It only lasts a moment but the moment is 
     electric.

     HITLER breaks the spell by taking the Grail Diary from him, 
     opens it to the first page and signs his autograph. He hands 
     it back and moves on.

86   EXT. AIRFIELD - BERLIN, GERMANY- DAY                          86   

     Indy's motorcycle pulls up to the main terminal.

87   INT. TERMINAL BUILDING - DAY                                  87   

     A Plainclothes Agent distributes leaflets bearing HENRY'S 
     PICTURE to Nazi Soldiers inside the terminal.

     HENRY leans in a doorway reading a newspaper as INDY enters 
     down the stairs and taps Henry's shoulder.

     They begin to walk toward the boarding gates.

                           HENRY
               What did you get?

                           INDY
               I don't know. The first available 
               flight out of Germany.

                           HENRY
               Good.

     INDY and HENRY show their papers to the Boarding Guards, 
     then join the line of passengers, which has already begun to 
     move toward a:

     MOORED ZEPPELIN

     Ten stories tall and longer than two football fields: Flying 
     in the grand tradition!

88   INT. THE ZEPPELIN - PASSENGER COMPARTMENT - DAY               88   

     The Zeppelin is about to take off. INDY and HENRY make 
     themselves comfortable in one of the compartments.

                           INDY
               Well, we made it.

     HENRY looks over his newspaper at INDY.

                           HENRY
               When we're airborne, with Germany 
               behind us, then I'll share that 
               sentiment.

                           INDY
               Relax.

     But INDY looks out the window and is suddenly concerned when 
     he sees:

     VOGEL AND A GESTAPO AGENT

     rushing across the tarmac toward the Zeppelin.

                           VOGEL
               Nicht zumachen! Wir steigen ein!

     INDY

     sits back in his chair, looks to HENRY, now reading his 
     newspaper.

     A STEWARD enters and sets a bowl of nuts on the table in 
     front of INDY and HENRY, then continues down the aisle of 
     passengers. Indy follows after the Steward. He puts his arm 
     around the Steward's shoulder and together they walk up a 
     flight of stairs.

     VOGEL

     now walks up the aisle. He approaches a MALE PASSENGER hidden 
     behind a newspaper. VOGEL uses his walking stick to lower 
     the newspaper and show the Passenger the leaflet with Henry's

     The Passengers at the table shake their heads in the negative. 
     VOGEL shows the picture to other Passengers.

                           INDY (O.S.)
               Fahrscheine, bitte.

                           MALE PASSENGER
               Nein.

     VOGEL TURNS TO SEE:

     INDY

     Wearing the hat and jacket of the chief steward.

                           MALE PASSENGER (O.S.) (CONT'D)
               Ich habe ihn night gesehen.

                           INDY
               Tickets please.

     The Passengers do not react to the request, made in English.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Fahrscheine meine Dame. Bitte.

     VOGEL

     approaches HENRY, still hidden behind his newspaper. Again, 
     VOGEL uses his walking stick to lower the paper, revealing 
     Henry's face.

                           VOGEL
               Guten Tag, Herr Jones.

     Now INDY, still playing the role of Steward, asks VOGEL for 
     his ticket.

                           INDY
               Fahrscheine meine Herr.

                           VOGEL
               Weg.

                           INDY
               Tickets please.

     HENRY looks confused.

                           VOGEL
                    (in German)
               Was?

     VOGEL glances up and recognizes INDY—who quickly punches 
     Vogel in the face, knocking him toward the window. In another 
     quick move, Indy TOSSES HIM OUT THE WINDOW onto the tarmac 
     below.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     Shocked Passengers blink in bewilderment.

                           INDY
                    (in German; with a 
                    shrug)
               No ticket.

     Everyone else with a ticket quickly produces it and waves it 
     in Indy's face.

89   EXT. AIRFIELD TARMAC - DAY                                    89   

     VOGEL gets to his knees as the huge Zeppelin rises into the 
     sky above him, revealing an airplane attached to the belly 
     of the airship. Vogel shakes his fist at the rising Zeppelin.

                           VOGEL
               Du wirst nochmal boren von mir!

90   INT. ZEPPELIN - DAY                                           90   

     INDY and HENRY together again in their compartment.

                           HENRY
               You know, sharing your adventures is 
               an interesting experience.

                           INDY
                    (meaning ELSA)
               That's not all we shared. It's 
               disgraceful. You're old enough to be 
               her fa---er, her grandfather!

                           HENRY
               Well, I'm as human as the next man.

                           INDY
               I was the next man.

                           HENRY
                    (laughs)
               Ships that pass in the night...

     HENRY opens his Diary and begins to thumb through it.

                           INDY
               Do you remember the last time we had 
               a quiet drink? I had a milk shake.

                           HENRY
               Hmmm... What did we talk about?

                           INDY
               We didn't talk. We never talked.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           HENRY
               And do I detect a rebuke?

                           INDY
               A regret. It was just the two of us, 
               Dad. It was a lonely way to grow up. 
               For you, too. If you had been an 
               ordinary, average father like the 
               other guys' dads, you'd have 
               understood that.

                           HENRY
               Actually, I was a wonderful father.

                           INDY
               When?

     HENRY looks up from his Diary.

                           HENRY
               Did I ever tell you to eat up?  Go 
               to bed? Wash your ears? Do your 
               homework? No. I respected your privacy 
               and I taught you self-reliance.

                           INDY
               What you taught me was that I was 
               less important to you than people 
               who had been dead for five hundred 
               years in another country. And I 
               learned it so well that we've hardly 
               spoken for twenty years.

                           HENRY
               You left just when you were becoming 
               interesting.

                           INDY
               Dad, how can you --?

                           HENRY
                    (interrupting)
               Very well. I'm here now.

     He closes the Diary and leans back in his seat.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               What do you want to talk about?  
               Hmmm?

     INDY stutters uncomfortably as HENRY stares at him, waiting 
     for a response.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           INDY
                    (laughs)
               Well... I can't think of anything.

                           HENRY
               Then what are you complaining about?
                    (laughs)
               Look, we have work to do. When we 
               get to Alexandretta we will face 
               three challenges.
                    (he reads from the 
                    Diary)
               "First, the breath of God. Only the 
               penitent man will pass.  Second, the 
               Word of God, only in the footsteps 
               of God will he proceed. Third, the 
               Path of God, only in the leap from 
               the lion's head will he prove his 
               worth. "

                           INDY
               What does that mean?

                           HENRY
                    (laughs)
               I don't know. We'll find out.

     Sunlight falls across the table from the window. INDY reaches 
     for the drink. The bar of sunlight turns like the hand of a 
     clock over the tabletop across the drinks.

     We see INDY puzzled. Only for a moment.

                           INDY
               They're turning around. They're taking 
               us back to Germany.

91   INT. FRAMEWORK OF ZEPPELIN - DAY                              91   

     INDY and his father emerge from the hatchway into the belly 
     of the Zeppelin.

     The Zeppelin's elaborate metal framework is exposed.

     INDY and HENRY hurry down the catwalk until arriving at a 
     PAIR OF DOORWAYS framed into the Zeppelin's outer skin.

                           INDY
               Well, I thought it would take them a 
               lot longer to figure out the radio 
               was dead. Come on, Dad. Move!

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     Then INDY opens the doors. We see plenty of blue sky and 
     white clouds. We also see a small BIPLANE that is suspended 
     from the Zeppelin by a HOOK & CRANE DEVICE.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Come on, Dad. Come on!

92   EXT. AIRPLANE - DAY                                           92   

     INDY climbs into the cockpit of the Biplane as HENRY takes 
     the tail gunner's seat.

                           HENRY
                    (with delight)
               I didn't know you could fly a plane.

                           INDY
               Fly--yes. Land--no.

93   INT. THE BIPLANE - DAY                                        93   

     INDY turns in his seat to give HENRY the "thumbs up." Henry 
     smiles valiantly and points down to the ground.

     Then they both become aware of a STRANGE SOUND in the skies 
     behind them.

     Something between a ROAR and a WAIL.

     TWO MESSERSCHMIDT FIGHTER BOMBERS

     streak out of the clouds and race across the sky.

     INDY AND HENRY

     shrink in their seats as the MESSERSCHMIDTS (going three 
     times as fast as they are) SCREAM past on either side.

                           INDY
               Dad, you're gonna have to use the 
               machine gun. Get it ready.

     HENRY turns and grips the MOUNTED MACHINE GUN with a perplexed 
     expression.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
                    (turning; pointing)
               Eleven o'clock!

     HENRY pulls out his watch.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Dad—eleven o'clock!!

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           HENRY
               What happens at eleven o'clock?

     INDY uses his arm to demonstrate that he's referring to a 
     direction and not a time.

                           INDY
                    (frustrated)
               Twelve—eleven—ten. Eleven o'clock. 
               Fire!

     HENRY does—and the EXPLODING GUN nearly shakes him out of 
     his seat.

     Indy's slow speed and small size works to his advantage. The 
     speeding Messerschmidts continually overshoot him, WHIZZING 
     past in a blur—making wide turns miles away in the sky.

     HENRY has one of the Messerschmidts in his sight. He pulls 
     back on the trigger

     --RATTA-A-TAT-TAT!  RATTA-A-TAT-TAT!

     The Messerschmidt banks to the left, but HENRY keeps it in 
     his gun sight. Henry swings the gun around, inadvertently 
     CUTTING HIS OWN REAR STABILIZER IN HALF.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Dad, are we hit?!

                           HENRY
               More or less.  Son, I'm sorry. They 
               got us.

     INDY looks back at the missing tail section, then at his 
     father.

     The plane begins to go down. INDY struggles to control its 
     descent.

                           INDY
               Hang on, Dads We're going in!

     HENRY slumps down fearfully in his seat.

94   EXT. A FIELD - DAY                                            94   

     The wheels of the plane touch down. OUT OF CONTROL, the PLANE 
     SKIDS and CRASHES first into a corral of goats and then into 
     the farmhouse beyond sending a cloud of dust into the air.

     As INDY pulls himself from the cockpit:

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           HENRY
                    (sarcastic)
               Nice landing.

                           INDY
               Thanks.

     Suddenly, INDY's attention is directed to:

     TWO SCREAMING MESSERSCHMIDTS

     coming in low. Guns BLAZING.

     As BULLETS EXPLODE around them, INDY and HENRY jump over a 
     stone barricade. Henry, frightened, grabs at Indy.

                           HENRY
               Those people are trying to kill us!

                           INDY
               I know, Dad!

                           HENRY
               It's a new experience for me.

                           INDY
               It happens to me all the time.

95   EXT. ROAD - DAY                                               95   

     An OLD MAN kneels at his car repairing a rear tire.

     THE MAN

     turns to the wheel, the hubcap in his hands. Suddenly the 
     wheel moves forward, startling the Old Man.

96   INT. THE CAR - TRAVELING - DAY                                96   

     INDY has the throttle down, both hands tightly gripping the 
     steering wheel.

     HENRY is a very nervous passenger.

     INDY sees a LOW-FLYING MESSERSCHMIDT coming up behind him in 
     the SIDE MIRROR.

     As the Messerschmidt ROARS by overhead, BULLETS EXPLODE around 
     them, narrowly missing the car.

                           HENRY
               This is intolerable!

                           INDY
               This could be close.

97   EXT. THE ROAD - LONG SHOT - DAY                               97   

     The car races toward a TUNNEL that cuts through a steep 
     MOUNTAINSIDE.

     The Messerschmidt bears down on Indy's car, machine guns 
     CHATTERING.

     The car ENTERS the tunnel. The Messerschmidt cannot pull up 
     in time. It SLAMS into the MOUTH OF THE TUNNEL, SHEARING OFF 
     its WINGS.

98   INT. THE TUNNEL - DAY                                         98   

     The FLAMING FUSELAGE continues to ROCKET through the tunnel 
     like a bullet down the muzzle of a gun. SPARKS fly as its 
     belly SCRAPES against the pavement and the sides of the 
     tunnel.

99   INT. THE CAR - DAY                                            99   

     Indy and Henry look over their shoulders to see this wingless 
     BALL OF FIRE gaining on them; about to overtake them.

                           HENRY
               Faster, boy --faster!

100   EXT. THE ROAD - OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN - DAY            100   

     The car exits the tunnel at top speed and veers off the road. 
     The flaming Messerschmidt fuselage shoots past and EXPLODES 
     in the middle of the road.

101   INT. THE CAR - DAY                                          101   

     As the car emerges safely from the flames, Henry wipes the 
     sweat from his brow.

                           HENRY
               Well, they don't come any closer 
               than that!

     HENRY looks out the windshield and sees the second 
     Messerschmidt SCREAMING out of the sky toward them.

102   EXT. THE ROAD - LONG SHOT - DAY                             102   

     The MESSERSCHMIDT drops its single UNDER-FUSELAGE BOMB. It 
     EXPLODES in the road directly ahead of the car, missing it 
     by only several feet.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     THE CAR

     FALLS INTO THE HOLE made by the bomb.

                                                     DISSOLVE TO:

103   EXT. ROAD - DAY                                             103   

     INDY climbs out of the car, still in the bomb crater. He 
     turns back to HENRY.

                           INDY
               Dad, he's coming back.

     INDY and HENRY run down the mountainside to:

104   DESERTED MEDITERRANEAN BEACH - DAY                          104   

     INDY and HENRY run to the shoreline. Indy reaches for his 
     gun, tucked in his pants. He opens the chamber—the GUN HAS 
     NO BULLETS.

     THE MESSERSCHMIDT

     swings around and is coming in for another pass.

     INDY AND HENRY

     exchange a wordless glance. They don't even think about 
     running: there is no place to run to. HENRY hands his case 
     to INDY.

     Holding his umbrella, HENRY suddenly spins around and runs 
     screaming and shouting into A FLOCK OF SEA GULLS...

     THE SEA GULLS take to the wing in flight. Thousands of them.

     INDY

     Bullets kick up sand leading up to him... then—

     THE MESSERSCHMIDT AND THE SEA GULLS meet in midair. MASSACRE! 
     Sea gulls are shredded by the Messerschmidt's whirling 
     propeller blades into a FEATHERY WHITE PUREE that SPLATTERS 
     against the cockpit and CLOGS THE ENGINE.

     ENGINE SPUTTERS... STALLS... Silence. The Messerschmidt falls 
     from the skies and EXPLODES in an OFF CAMERA SOUND EFFECT.

     INDY stands as before—stunned—a statue.

     HENRY walks back to INDY.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           HENRY
               I suddenly remembered Charlemagne.  
               "Let my armies be the rocks and the 
               trees and the birds in the sky."
                    (he chuckles)

     INDY wears a proud expression as he watches HENRY walk down 
     the beach.

105   EXT. MOSQUE - DAY                                           105   

     FADE IN TITLE: "REPUBLIC OF HATAY"

     FADE OUT TITLE.

106   EXT. COURTYARD OF SULTAN'S PALACE - ISKENDERUN - DAY        106   

     The SULTAN is seated in his royal chair, flanked by WALTER 
     DONOVAN and VOGEL and surrounded by his minions.

     DONOVAN holds the missing Grail Diary pages.

                           DONOVAN
               These pages are taken from Professor 
               Jones' diary, Your Highness. And 
               they include a map that pinpoints 
               the exact location of the Grail.

     DONOVAN and the SULTAN walk together through an archway.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               As you can see, the Grail is all but 
               in our hands.
                    (beat)
               However, Your Highness, we would not 
               think of crossing your soil without 
               your permission, nor of removing the 
               Grail from your borders without 
               suitable compensation.

                           SULTAN
               What have you brought?

                           VOGEL
               Bring den Schatz!

     TWO NAZI SOLDIERS bring forward a HUGE STEAMER TRUNK. They 
     open the lid and begin to empty it of its contents:

     Gold and silver objects of every description.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           DONOVAN
               Precious valuables, Your Highness, 
               "donated" by some of the finest 
               families in all of Germany.

     The SULTAN gets up from his chair and walks toward the trunk. 
     He goes right past it and begins to inspect the Nazi staff 
     car parked nearby.

                           SULTAN
               Rolls-Royce Phantom Two. 4.3 litre, 
               30 horsepower, six cylinder engine, 
               with Stromberg Downdraft carburetor.

     The SULTAN points to the engine under the hood.

                           SULTAN (CONT'D)
               Can go from zero to 100 kilometres 
               an hour in 12.5 seconds. And I even 
               like the color.

                           DONOVAN
                    (after a beat)
               The keys are in the ignition, Your 
               Highness.

                           SULTAN
               You shall have camels, horses, an 
               armed escort, provisions, desert 
               vehicles—and tanks!

                           DONOVAN
               You're welcome.

     Somebody else is also taking note...and we see that it is 
     KAZIM, the spy at the court.

     ELSA is revealed coming down the stairs toward DONOVAN and 
     VOGEL.

                           ELSA
               We have no time to lose. Indiana 
               Jones and his father have escaped.

107   EXT. ISKENDERUN STREET - DAY                                107   

     SALLAH drives his car through the crowded streets, INDY beside 
     him and HENRY in the back seat.

                           SALLAH
               We go this way.

     SALLAH waves his arms and shouts to a CAMEL HERDER.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           SALLAH (CONT'D)
               Get that camel out of the way!

                           INDY
               What happened to Marcus, Sallah?

                           SALLAH
                    (overlapping)
               Ah, they set out across the desert 
               this afternoon. I believe they took 
               Mister Brody with them.

     HENRY removes his hat and hits INDY with it.

                           HENRY
               Now they have the map! And in this 
               sort of race, there's no silver medal 
               for finishing second.

108   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    108   

     Elsa and Donovan's party—consisting of a SUPPLY TRUCK, OPEN 
     CAR, TUhKISH

     SOLDIERS RIDING CAMELS, SPARE HORSES AND A TANK AND VARIOUS 
     OTHER VEHICLES—all moving along through the ramble of this 
     box canyon.

     ELSA, DONOVAN and VOGEL travel in the open car. The TANK is 
     a vintage World War I model with enormous treads. The Turkish 
     soldiers wear native dress and carry both carbines and sabers.

     BRODY sits alongside ELSA in the rear of the car carrying 
     DONOVAN. Donovan hands a canteen back to him.

                           DONOVAN
               Care to wet your whistle, Marcus?

                           BRODY
               I'd rather spit in your face.  But 
               as I haven't got any spit...

     VOGEL snatches the canteen away from BRODY before he can 
     drink.

                           VOGEL
               We must be within three or four miles. 
               Otherwise we are off the map.

     He hands the map to ELSA, drinks from the canteen, and hands 
     that back to DONOVAN.

                           DONOVAN
               Well, Marcus, we are on the brink of 
               the recovery of the greatest artifact 
               in the history of mankind.

                           BRODY
               You're meddling with powers you cannot 
               possibly comprehend.

     HENRY and SALLAH are at INDY's side as he views Donovan's 
     party in the distance. Parked nearby is a CAR containing all 
     of their supplies.

                           INDY
               Ah, I see Brody. He seems okay.  
               They've got a tank. Six-pound gun.

     Then Donovan notices a reflection from the hills.

     WHAT HE SEES IS:

     THE SUN REFLECTING OFF THE LENSES OF INDY'S BINOCULARS

                           HENRY
               What do you think you're doing?!  
               Get down!

                           INDY
               Dad, we're well out of range.

     At that moment the tank FIRES A SHELL in their direction.

     It WHISTLES overhead and BLOWS UP THE PARKED CAR. INDY, HENRY 
     and SALLAH cover their heads as automobile fragments rain 
     down upon them.

                           SALLAH
               That car belonged to my brother-in-
               law.

                           INDY
                    (gesturing to the 
                    others)
               Come on--come on!

109   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    109   

                           VOGEL
               I can't see anyone up there.

                           DONOVAN
               Maybe it wasn't even Jones.

                           ELSA
               No. It's him all right. He's here 
               somewhere.

                           DONOVAN
                    (to VOGEL)
               Put Brody in the tank.

     KAZIM peers over a rock, pointing his rifle at the group 
     below.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
                    (to ELSA)
               Well, in this sun, without 
               transportation, they're as good as 
               dead.

     BULLETS EXPLODE off the vehicles and cliff. DONOVAN and ELSA 
     duck.

     A NAZI SOLDIER falls from the tank as BULLETS EXPLODE around 
     him.

     KAZIM'S MEN, BRETHREN OF THE CRUCIFORM SWORD, continue to 
     FIRE. ELSA and DONOVAN take cover beside the parked car.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               It's Jones, all right.

     ANGLE ON INDY'S GROUP

     INDY and HENRY, followed by SALLAH, take cover behind a rock 
     to watch Kazim's Men and the Nazi Troops exchanging fire 
     below them.

                           HENRY
               Now, who are all these people?

                           INDY
               Who cares? As long as they're keeping 
               Donovan busy. Dad, you stay here 
               while Sallah and I organize some 
               transportation.

     CUT BACK to the action. The BRETHREN are firing at the DONOVAN 
     party and are being fired on by the Donovan party.

     TWO NAZI SOLDIERS throw HAND GRENADES into the cliffs. They 
     EXPLODE, killing one of Kazim's Brethren.

     The battle continues—a fierce exchange of GUNSHOTS, GRENADES 
     and MACHINE GUN FIRE with losses on both sides.

     INDY AND SALLAH

     crouch behind a rock watching as men on both sides of the 
     battle run amongst camels and horses.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               I'm going after those horses.

                           SALLAH
               I'll take the camels.

                           INDY
               I don't need camels.

                           SALLAH
               But, Indy—

                           INDY
               No camels!

     DONOVAN AND ELSA

     They look down at KAZIM who lies mortally wounded on the 
     ground at their feet.

     ELSA looks saddened.

                           DONOVAN
                    (re KAZIM)
               Who is he?

                           KAZIM
               A messenger from God. For the 
               unrighteous, the Cup of Life holds 
               everlasting damnation.

     KAZIM dies.

     INDY

     leaps atop a TURKISH SOLDIER on horseback, pulling the man 
     and the horse to the ground. A SECOND TURK comes to assist 
     his comrade; INDY mounts the horse, knocking both Turks to 
     the ground.

110   INT. THE TANK - DAY                                         110   

     BRODY has been left alone in the tank. HENRY climbs down 
     into the tank and taps Brody on the shoulder, startling him.

                           HENRY
               Marcus!

                           BRODY
               Arghhh! Oh!

     They exchange an old University Club toast, swinging their 
     arms at one another and missing. Then HENRY flaps his arms 
     and tugs his ears.

                           HENRY
               "Genius of the Restoration—"

     Now BRODY tugs his ears, flaps his arms and touches his head.

                           BRODY
               "—aid our own resuscitation!"

     They exchange a handshake.

                           BRODY (CONT'D)
               Henry!  What are you doing here?!

                           HENRY
               It's a rescue, old boys Come on.

     As HENRY starts to climb out of the tank, TWO NAZI SOLDIERS 
     DROP DOWN from above, their Lugers drawn. They are followed 
     by VOGEL.

                           VOGEL
                    (re HENRY)
               Search him.

     The NAZI SOLDIERS point their guns at HENRY and BRODY.

                           VOGEL (CONT'D)
                    (to HENRY)
               What is in this book? That miserable 
               little Diary of yours!

     VOGEL removes a glove and slaps HENRY with it.

                           VOGEL (CONT'D)
               Here's the map. The book is useless, 
               and yet you come all the way back to 
               Berlin to get it.  Why?

     He slaps HENRY again.

                           VOGEL (CONT'D)
               What are you hiding?

     Another slap.

                           VOGEL (CONT'D)
               What does the Diary tell you that it 
               doesn't tell us?!

     VOGEL reaches out to slap HENRY yet again, but Henry grabs 
     his arm, stopping him.

                           HENRY
               It tells me that goose-stepping morons 
               like yourself should try reading 
               books instead of burning them.

     DONOVAN appears at the turret cover.

                           DONOVAN
               Colonel? Jones is getting away.

                           VOGEL
                    (indicating HENRY)
               I think not, Herr Donovan.

111   EXT. TANK - DAY                                             111   

                           DONOVAN
               Not that Jones—the other Jones!

                           NAZI SOLDIER
               Herr Colonel!

112   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    112   

     INDY rides away on one horse, leading three others as he 
     goes.

     SALLAH approaches on horseback leading five camels.

                           INDY
               Sallah, I said no camels! That's 
               five camels. Can't you Count?

                           SALLAH
               Compensation for my brother-in-law's 
               car. Indy, your father and Brody—

                           INDY
               Where's my father?

                           SALLAH
               They have them. In the belly of that 
               steel beast.

     INDY and SALLAH charge forward leading their horses and 
     camels.

     Then VOGEL commands the Tank Driver to give chase.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

113   INT. TANK - DAY                                             113   

     VOGEL shouts to the Tank Driver.

                           VOGEL
               Fire!

114   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    114   

     The tank starts firing at INDY on horseback. Indy zigs and 
     zags as the tank fires two rounds at Indy, barely missing 
     him. Each time Indy emerges from the plume of desert dust, 
     hanging like a toadstool in the air.

115   INT. TANK- DAY                                              115   

     HENRY and BRODY hold their hands over their ears.

116   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    116   

     DONOVAN shouts orders to the Troops. INDY is followed by 
     various vehicles in the caravan.

     INDY notices that the side gun that is now firing at him can 
     only pivot so far.

     Indy makes a mental note of this and while riding right in 
     front of the tank, turns his horse completely around, 180 
     degrees. The tank starts to follow.

     POV THROUGH THE VIEWING PORT

     VOGEL watches the ground turning 180 degrees as he tries to 
     catch up with

     INDY.

     Cleverly, INDY has turned the tank directly into a head-on 
     collision course with some of the pursuit vehicles and a 
     Kubelwagon.

     The tank and the Kubelwagon smash into each other, the German 
     military sedan becoming lodged between the treads while 
     blocking the front view and any use of the six-pound cannon 
     on the turret.

     INDY, meanwhile, leans down on his horse, scooping up a stone 
     from the wall of a culvert. He reins his horse, paralleling 
     the tank, as everyone scurries about inside, looking through 
     viewing ports, trying to figure out exactly where Indy is.

117   INT. TANK- DAY                                              117   

     VOGEL shouts to the Gunner.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           VOGEL
               Der Kubelwagon sprengen!

     The Gunner puts a shell into the large gun. He FIRES, 
     CATAPULTING THE KUBELWAGON into the air, where it EXPLODES.  
     The tank drives through the resulting smoke an dust, then 
     rolls over the Kubelwagon, crushing it

118   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    118   

     INDY gallops up to the side cannon and jams the stone down 
     the barrel, lodging several rocks inside. Then he steers his 
     horse directly in range of that gun.

119   INT. TANK - DAY                                             119   

     A NAZI SOLDIER pushes HENRY away from the window.

                           NAZI SOLDIER
               Keine Bewegung.

     He points his gun at HENRY and BRODY.

                           NAZI SOLDIER (CONT'D)
               Keine Bewegung.

     The smaller gun, blocked by the rocks, BACKFIRES, blowing 
     the breech out into the face of the gunner, killing him and 
     filling the tank with smoke.

     BRODY, HENRY, VOGEL and the driver begin to choke.

120   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    120   

     INDY rides his horse alongside the tank.

                           INDY
               Dad!  Dad!  Dad!

121   INT. TANK - DAY                                             121   

     HENRY and BRODY still held at gunpoint by the NAZI SOLDIER.

                           HENRY
               Junior? Junior? Junior!

     The NAZI SOLDIER swings his fist, knocking HENRY off his 
     seat.

122   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    122   

     Smoke pours from the top of the tank as the turret pops open. 
     VOGEL emerges and aims his gun at INDY.

     INDY and VOGEL EXCHANGE SHOTS as Indy chases the tank on his 
     horse.

     INDY pulls the trigger again—his gun is empty! Indy 
     immediately takes the high trail.

     Now INDY is above the tank twelve feet on a paralleling trail. 
     He moves out of the saddle and leaps from the speeding horse 
     onto the trundling tank.

     CLOSE UP - VOGEL

     HATE-STARING AT INDY

     CLOSE UP - INDY

     Hate-staring back at VOGEL.

     Suddenly, from nowhere a German soldier flies INTO FRAME, 
     tackling Indy.

                                                          CUT TO:

     SIDE ANGLE

     One of the two troop carriers is paralleling the tank and 
     like pirates boarding a galleon, Nazi Soldiers leap over the 
     treads and are swarming all over INDY.

     INDY is struggling with a German's Luger.

     INDY presses the luger against his assailant and forces the 
     Nazi to squeeze off a shot into himself. The bullet not only 
     passes through the Nazi, but passes through two other Nazis 
     standing directly behind him on the crowded tank top and 
     three bodies fall away, leaving Indy to stare at the gun in 
     disbelief.

     Another Soldier leaps from the truck onto the tank and raises 
     his knife as he grabs INDY. They struggle and fall.

     INDY sits up to see VOGEL standing over him. Vogel wraps a 
     chain around Indy's neck.

123   INT. TANK- DAY                                              123   

     INDY appears at the entrance, the chain still wrapped about 
     his neck and held by

     VOGEL.

                           INDY
               Dad!

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     He drops the gun down into the tank.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Dad!  Dad!  Get it!

     VOGEL pulls INDY from the tank entrance, yanking on the chain 
     wrapped around his neck.

124   EXT. TANK - DAY                                             124   

     A NAZI SOLDIER approaches.

     INDY hits him, knocking him onto the tank tread. The Nazi 
     Soldier screams as he is dragged under the rolling tank.

     Now INDY and VOGEL struggle with one another, the chain still 
     wrapped around Indy's neck.

125   INT. TANK- DAY                                              125   

     THROUGH THE PERISCOPE

     We SEE INDY and VOGEL struggling atop the tank. Indy lifts 
     his feet, lunging toward the periscope and pulling Vogel 
     with him.

     INDY's face is pressed up against the lens of the periscope.

126   INT. TANK - DAY                                             126   

     The NAZI SOLDIER looking through the periscope pulls away 
     from it, smiles, then turns back to it.

     THROUGH THE PERISCOPE

     INDY's face, still pressed against the lens.

     VOGEL pulls INDY from the periscope.

127   INT. TANK - DAY                                             127   

     The NAZI SOLDIER pulls away from the periscope again.

                           PERISCOPE SOLDIER
                    (laughing)
               Diese Amerikane. Sie Kampfen wie 
               Weiber.

128   EXT. TANK - DAY                                             128   

     INDY now lies on top of VOGEL. He kicks out at the periscope 
     which spins around.

129   INT. TANK - DAY                                             129   

     The periscope handle spins around and hits the PERISCOPE 
     SOLDIER in the head.

     He falls against the NAZI SOLDIER guarding HENRY and BRODY.

     HENRY pushes the NAZI SOLDIER aside and grabs the gun. The 
     PERISCOPE SOLDIER struggles to take the gun from Henry.

130   EXT. TANK- DAY                                              130   

     VOGEL holds the chain around INDY's neck, pushing his head 
     downward toward the revolving tread.

131   INT. TANK - DAY                                             131   

     The PERISCOPE SOLDIER holds HENRY from behind, forcing the 
     gun toward him.

     Henry reaches down and pulls a fountain pen from his coat 
     pocket.

     As the PERISCOPE SOLDIER pulls on HENRY's face, Henry lifts 
     the fountain pen and squirts ink into his face. The Soldier 
     falls, his head smashing into the wall of the tank. At the 
     same time, Henry loses his grip on the gun which falls to 
     the floor.

                           BRODY
               Henry, the pen—

                           HENRY
               What?

                           BRODY
               But don't you see? The pen is mightier 
               than the sword.

132   EXT. DESERT VALLEY - DAY                                    132   

     A troop truck pulls near the tank.

133   INT. TANK- DAY                                              133   

     HENRY fires the TANK GUN at the troop truck. SOLDIERS FLY 
     INTO THE AIR.

     The TROOP TRUCK flips over and EXPLODES.

134   EXT. TANK - DAY                                             134   

     The EXPLOSION knocks INDY off the tank and onto the tread. 
     He grabs onto the shredded gun protruding from the side of 
     the tank.

     VOGEL looks down at INDY and smiles smugly.

     The tank is approaching a cliff wall. As INDY tries to secure 
     footing, VOGEL steps on his hands.

135   INT. TANK - DAY                                             135   

     BRODY looks at HENRY.

                           BRODY
               Look what you did!

                           HENRY
               It's war.

136   EXT. TANK - DAY                                             136   

     VOGEL now swings a shovel at INDY, smashing at his hands.

     BRODY climbs up out of the tank, followed by HENRY.

                           HENRY
               Didn't I tell you it was a rescue, 
               huh?

     A NAZI SOLDIER appears and pulls HENRY down.

     VOGEL raises the shovel above his head and brings it crashing 
     down on INDY, still hanging from the protruding gun.

     INDY loses his grip and now hangs from the gun suspended 
     only by the strap of his leather pouch. He screams as the 
     gun scrapes against the cliff wall, sending stones tumbling 
     down over him.

137   INT. TANK - DAY                                             137   

     The NAZI SOLDIER knocks HENRY into a pile of boxes, then 
     punches him in the face.

     As the SOLDIER raises the gun to HENRY's face, BRODY hits 
     him over the head with a canister. The Soldier falls, 
     discharging the gun into the air.

     The BULLET RICOCHETS around the tank, past the Tank Driver 
     who is manipulating levers at the control panel. SPARKS FLY; 
     then the BULLET PINGS AGAINST THE WINDOW and RICOCHETS ONCE 
     MORE, this time passing THROUGH THE TANK DRIVER'S HAT. Blood

     flows from under the hat as the Tank Driver slumps forward, 
     his body depressing the levers.

138   EXT. TANK - DAY                                             138   

     INDY still hangs from the strap of his leather pouch as the 
     tank swerves, barely missing the rocks and causing VOGEL to 
     fall. Indy finally manages to pull himself atop the tank 
     once more where he punches Vogel over the side, then peers 
     down to HENRY, still inside the tank.

                           INDY
               Dad?

                           HENRY
               You call this archaeology?

                           INDY
               Get out of there, Dad!

     INDY pulls HENRY and BRODY from the tank. VOGEL pulls himself 
     back atop the tank armed again with the shovel which he swings 
     at Indy, who ducks and grabs Vogel's arm.

                           BRODY
               How does one get off this thing?

     As INDY winds up to punch VOGEL he catches BRODY in the face 
     on the backswing, then completes the movement and knocks 
     Vogel down.

139   INT. TANK - DAY                                             139   

     Vogel's hat sails in and falls to the floor.

140   EXT. TANK- DAY                                              140   

                           HENRY
                    (to INDY)
               Where's Marcus?!

     Before INDY can answer, VOGEL is up and swinging with the 
     shovel. Indy ducks but the shovel catches HENRY sending him 
     over the side and onto the moving tread.

     INDY grabs his whip, knocking VOGEL aside.

     As HENRY speeds toward the front of the tank to certain doom, 
     INDY, with lightning speed, whips out his bullwhip, wrapping 
     the end of the whip around Henry's right ankle.

                           INDY
               Dad!

     HENRY is bouncing across the treads like a rag-doll. INDY 
     struggles to hold onto the end of the bullwhip.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Hang on, Dad!

     SALLAH draws his horse next to the treads. He tips his fez 
     to HENEY.

                           SALLAH
               Father of Indy—give me your hand!

     VOGEL now punches INDY in the back and grabs him around the 
     neck. Still, INDY refuses to let go of the whip.

                           INDY
               Sallah! Get Dad!

     SALLAH reaches out to HENRY.

                           SALLAH
               Give me your hand!

     SALLAH manages to hold onto HENRY as he brings his horse to 
     a stop just at the cliff's edge.

     INDY finally frees himself of VOGEL's grasp, twisting his 
     arm painfully away from Indy's neck, then landing a hard 
     blow to Vogel's head.

     INDY

     looks down at the fast-approaching cliff, his face filled 
     with horror.  We SEE his HAT BLOW OFF and sail over the 
     cliff's edge.

     VOGEL

     He sees his life passing before him, he screams at the top 
     of his lungs!

     LONG SHOT

     The tank trundles over the cliff and PLUMMETS TO THE BOTTOM.

141   EXT. CLIFF EDGE - DAY                                       141   

     HENRY, BRODY and SALLAH look down at the flaming wreckage of 
     the tank.

                           HENRY
               Junior?!

     We HEAR the TANK EXPLODING.

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           SALLAH
               Indy?!

                           HENRY
               Oh, God. I've lost him. And I never 
               told him anything. I just wasn't 
               ready, Marcus. Five minutes would 
               have been enough.

     And then... looking dazed and bewildered, INDY STAGGERS UP 
     BEHIND THEM.

     He joins the others at the edge of the cliff, looking down 
     at the wreckage below with a bewildered expression.

     Finally, Henry becomes aware of his presence.

     HENRY says nothing. He just looks at Indy, overcome with 
     emotion. Finally, he throws his arms around him.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               I thought I'd lost you, boy.

     After a moment, Indy's head clears. And he becomes aware of 
     his father's embrace. Something he hasn't felt in a long 
     time—if ever. And it touches him.

     He hugs his father back.

                           INDY
               I thought you had too, sir.

     BRODY and SALLAH are moved by this sudden reconciliation.

                           HENRY
               Well—well done! Come on!

     HENRY pats INDY on the back and Indy collapses, sitting hard 
     on the rocky cliff edge.

     Unaware, HENRY, SALLAH and BRODY start to walk away. Henry 
     turns back to see INDY still sitting on the ground.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               Let's go then. why are you sitting 
               there resting when we're so near the 
               end? Come on— let's go!

     HENRY turns and walks toward the horse with BRODY and SALLAH. 
     Suddenly the FEDORA, borne on the wind, BLOWS INTO SCENE and 
     lands at INDY's feet.

142   EXT. MOUNTAIN ROAD - DAY                                    142   

     DONOVAN peers through binoculars to see the CANYON OF THE 
     CRESCENT MOON. He lowers the binoculars and turns to ELSA.

                           DONOVAN
               The Canyon of the Crescent Moon.

     Now ELSA peers through the binoculars.

143   EXT. SECRET CANYON - DAY                                    143   

     INDY, HENRY, SALLAH and BRODY ride into the canyon. They 
     hear a WAILING WIND. Feel the biting cold. And sense the 
     danger.

     Now we turn a corner and they see the hidden city. Its 
     spectacular Grecian facade is carved directly into the rock.  
     It is a stunning sight. The vehicles, camels and horses 
     belonging to DONOVAN's party have been left at the entrance.

                                                          CUT TO:

144   INT. TEMPLE - DAY                                           144   

     INDY, SALLAH, HENRY AND BRODY creep forward to see:

     THE TERRIFIED FACE OF A TURKISH SOLDIER

     He's walking slowly. Eyes darting. Muttering a prayer under 
     his breath.

     What's going on here?

145   FULL SHOT - INSIDE THE MOUNTAIN TEMPLE                      145   

     THE TURK stands alone in the center of the Temple. It is 
     very dark. GIANT COLUMNS define the Temple's perimeter.

     ELSA AND DONOVAN

     watch him from a safe distance.

     THE TURK

     is about to approach the spot where a TURKISH SOLDIER LIES 
     DEAD. We don't notice it right away, but the dead soldier 
     has been DECAPITATED.

     THE TURK stops—only one step away from the beheaded soldier.

     THE TURK

                                                       (CONTINUED)

     takes one more step—a fatal step, it turns out. We hear a 
     ROAR—A WHOOSH of air—but we SEE NOTHING—except THE TURK'S 
     HEAD FLY OFF AND BOUNCE across the ground.

     INDY, HENRY, BRODY AND SALLAH

     react to the sight.

                           ELSA AND DONOVAN
               She looks at him, horrified.

                           DONOVAN
               Helmut, another volunteer!

     TWO NAZI SOLDIERS force another Turk forward. Suddenly...

     The SOUND OF RIFLE BOLTS being cocked. Everyone turns to 
     discover INDY and his party surrounded by NAZI SOLDIERS. 
     Indy's group are relieved of their guns.

146   FULL SHOT - THE TEMPLE                                      146   

     INDY, HENRY, BRODY and SALLAH are brought forward by the 
     Nazi Soldiers.

     ELSA's eyes light up: glad Indy's not dead. she controls 
     herself and continues more coldly.

                           ELSA
                    (to INDY)
               I never expected to see you again.

                           INDY
               I'm like a bad penny. I always turn 
               up.

                           DONOVAN
               Step back now, Doctor Schneider.  
               Give Doctor Jones some room. He's 
               going to recover the Grail for us.

     INDY laughs.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               Impossible? What do you say, Jones? 
               Ready to go down in history?

                           INDY
               As what? A Nazi stooge like you?

                           DONOVAN
                    (scornfully)
               Nazis?!—

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               Is that the limit of your vision?! 
               The Nazis want to write themselves 
               into the Grail legend and take on 
               the world.  Well, they're welcome. 
               But I want the Grail itself. The cup 
               that gives everlasting life.  Hitler 
               can have the world, but he can't 
               take it with him. I'm going to be 
               drinking my own health when he's 
               gone the way of the Dodo.
                    (he draws his pistol)
               The Grail is mine, and you're going 
               to get it for me.

                           INDY
               Shooting me won't get you anywhere.

                           DONOVAN
               You know something, Doctor Jones?...  
               you're absolutely right.

     Then DONOVAN shifts his aim, just a bit, and SHOOTS HENRY. 
     The bullet enters his side below the ribs.

                           INDY
               Dad?!

                           HENRY
               Junior. . .

                           ELSA
               No!!

                           DONOVAN
                    ( to ELSA)
               Get back!

     HENRY collapses. Blood flowing from the wound. BRODY and 
     SALLAH rush to his assistance.

     INDY spins toward DONOVAN with murder in his eyes.

     DONOVAN POINTS THE GUN AT HIM:

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               You can't save him when you're dead.

     INDY hesitates.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               The healing power of the Grail is 
               the only thing that can save your

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               father now. It's time to ask yourself 
               what you believe.

     INDY takes in the situation. The two decapitated men lie a 
     few yards in front of him. He walks to the entranceway, 
     flanked by two stone lions. We get silent reaction 
     shots—ELSA—SALLAH—BRODY—DONOVAN—registering their different 
     emotions INDY proceeds forward. His hands open the Grail 
     Diary.

                           INDY
               "The Breath of God... Only the 
               penitent man will pass. Only the 
               penitent man will pass. . . "

     INDY takes a few steps forward.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               "The penitent man will pass.  The 
               penitent man..."

     INDY stops. He is about to reach the spot where two men have 
     just died.

     HENRY looks at INDY. Indy looks at Henry.

                           HENRY
                    (in a raspy voice)
               "Only the penitent man will pass.  
               Only the penitent man will pass."

                           INDY
                    (quietly to himself)
               The penitent man will pass. The 
               penitent... the penitent. The penitent 
               man...

                           HENRY
               The penitent man. The penitent...

     INDY takes a step forward through the cobwebs.

                           INDY
               The penitent man is humble before 
               God.

                           HENRY
               Penitent. Penitent...

                           INDY
               The penitent man is humble...

     The cobwebs begin to move....

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               He kneels before God.
                    (to himself; suddenly)
               Kneel!!

     We hear the awful rush of air—WHOOSH! Because INDY is in the 
     act of kneeling, only his hat is knocked off and his hair 
     flies in his face.

     Instinctively he ROLLS FORWARD on the ground out of harm's 
     way and looks up.

     From his new position he is able to see what is causing all 
     the trouble: A RAZOR SHARP TRIPLE PENDULUM.

     INDY gets cautiously to his feet. Now he sees the pendulum 
     has been guarding a SMALL CORRIDOR which turns a corner to 
     the left fifty yards ahead. Wooden wheels turn—the mechanism 
     controlling the spinning blades. INDY loops a rope around 
     the wheels, jamming the mechanism and stopping the blades in 
     mid-swipe.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               I'm through!

     ELSA AND DONOVAN

                           DONOVAN
               We're through!

     BRODY and SALLAH smile, relieved.

                           SALLAH
                    (to HENRY)
               He's all right.

     HENRY shakes his head.

                           HENRY
               No.

     BACK TO INDY

     holding the Grail Diary, reading once again, his fedora now 
     covered in cobwebs.

                           INDY
               "The second challenge is the Word of 
               God. Only in the footsteps of God 
               will he proceed."
                    (to himself)
               The Word of God... The Word of...

     INDY pulls away some cobwebs to reveal a cobblestone path. 
     Each cobble is engraved with a letter.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               "Proceed in the footsteps of the 
               Word."

                           HENRY
               lifts his head painfully.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               The Word of God...

                           BRODY
               No, Henry. Try not to talk.

                           HENRY
               The Name of God...

     BACK TO INDY

     as he studies the cobblestones before him.

                           INDY
               The Name of God... Jehovah!

     HENRY

     still lies in SALLAH's arms. BRODY leans over him.

                           HENRY
               But in the Latin alphabet, "Jehovah" 
               begins with an "I."

     BACK TO INDY

                           INDY
               "J."

     INDY takes a step and immediately a stone breaks away and 
     INDY falls up to his hip -- his leg stuck through the hold 
     where the stone once was.

     HENRY reacts.

                           HENRY
               Oh dear!

     BACK TO INDY

     who grunts as he pulls himself from the hole, the grail Diary 
     in his hand.

                           INDY
               In Latin, "Jehovah" starts with an 
               "I." "I"...

     Now we SEE each letter on the stones as INDY carefully walks 
     forward.

     DONOVAN and ELSA follow in his footsteps.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               "E"... "H"... "O"... "V"... "A"...

     INDY sighs with relief and steps forward to:

     THE GREAT ABYSS

     INDY stands in a small opening, just small enough for his 
     shoulders to squeeze through and beyond that a 100 foot drop 
     to the rocks below and 100 feet across, nothing but a rough, 
     stony cliff wall.

     BACK TO INDY

     He can see nowhere to cross. He looks again to the grail 
     Diary.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               "The path of God. Only in the leap 
               from the lion's head will he prove 
               his worth."

     INDY looks around and then he notices that inscribed into 
     the rock above his head is the head of a lion.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Impossiblel Nobody can jump this!

     INDY looks down into the Diary and tortures over what it is 
     asking him to do.

     BRODY

     rushes forward and calls to INDY.

                           BRODY
               Indy... Indy, you must hurry!!  Come 
               quickly!

     BACK TO INDY

                           INDY
                    (realizing)
               It's... a leap of faith. Oh, God.

     HENRY

     calls to his son.

                           HENRY
               You must believe, boy. you must...  
               believe.

     We see him do it. We see him leap into space. We see that he 
     is in midair. We see that he is not going to make it. His 
     hands claw for the opposite wall but he is going to fall 100 
     feet to his death. And then—he doesn't! He appears to be 
     held up by thin air as he lands on his hands and knees.

     INDY looks around and down and now he figures it out.

     Ingeniously, the First Crusaders have painted a pathway to 
     align with the rocks 100 feet below. It is a perfect forced 
     perspective image of the rocks below with lines from a hundred 
     feet continuing six feet below his sight line where his feet 
     are stepping.

     It's painted to blend in with the rocks below. Highly evolved 
     camouflage... in perfect alignment with everything we see 
     below.

     When INDY leans out to the left or right... that's when he 
     sees the perfect alignment shift that betrays the trick. 
     Indy throws some dirt on the bridge and he crosses it like 
     the first Crusader from the painting over Henry's desk.

     Indy crawls through a small opening in the side of the cliff 
     and enters a Temple.

     A vast array of chalices is displayed on the altar of this 
     small Temple. Perhaps a hundred or more. Many sizes, many 
     shapes, some gold, some silver, but they all glitter and 
     shine.

     INDY is mesmerized by their number and their beauty. And 
     then he realizes that a man is praying at the altar!  He has 
     his back turned to INDY... but he is dressed as what he is! 
     A GRAIL KNIGHT.

     CLOSE ON THE GRAIL KNIGHT

     But we can't see the Grail Knight's face. The visor of his 
     helmet is down.

     Perhaps we see his eyes.

     When the GRAIL KNIGHT sees INDY he gets wearily to his feet 
     and, surprisingly, prepares to give combat...taking up his 
     two-handed broadsword...he comes at Indy, attempting to swing

     the huge, heavy sword but finding the effort almost too much. 
     Indy dodges two or three clumsy swings of the sword, making 
     no attempt to fight back...until the Knight, exhausted, drops 
     the sword and collapses. Indy approaches him and raises the 
     visor and we see that the Knight is a very ancient man.

                           KNIGHT
               I knew you'd come, but my strength 
               has left me.

                           INDY
               Who are you?

                           KNIGHT
               The last of three brothers who swore 
               an oath to find the Grail and to 
               guard it.

                           INDY
               That was seven hundred years ago.

                           KNIGHT
               A long time to wait.

     The GRAIL KNIGHT reaches forward and fingers Indy's clothing.

                           KNIGHT (CONT'D)
               You're strangely dressed...for a 
               knight.

                           INDY
               I'm not exactly...a knight. What do 
               you mean?

                           KNIGHT
               I was chosen because I was the bravest 
               and the most worthy. The honor was 
               mine until another came to challenge 
               me to single combat.  I pass it to 
               you who vanquished me.

     The GRAIL KNIGHT holds his sword out to INDY.

                           INDY
                    (gulp)
               Listen, I don't have time to explain, 
               but—

     At that moment DONOVAN and ELSA appear. Donovan turns to 
     face the display of cups.

                           DONOVAN
               Which one is it?

                                                       (CONTINUED)

                           KNIGHT
               You must choose.
                    (beat)
               But choose wisely. For as the True 
               Grail will bring you life— the False 
               Grail will take it from you.

                           DONOVAN
               I'm not a historian. I have no idea 
               what it looks like. Which one is it?

                           ELSA
               Let me choose.

                           DONOVAN
               Thank you, Doctor.

     ELSA and INDY exchange looks. He thinks he is seeing her in 
     her true colors.

     ELSA chooses a cup—a solid gold, emerald encrusted goblet.

     DONOVAN instantly takes it from her.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               Oh, yes. It's more beautiful than 
               I'd ever imagined. This certainly is 
               the cup of the King of Kings.

     DONOVAN rushes to the well and fills the goblet with water.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               Eternal life!

     DONOVAN drinks from the goblet.

     Then, DONOVAN'S entire body starts to convulse. His face 
     contorts in agony. He grabs his stomach and turns toward 
     ELSA.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               What . . . is . . . happening. . . 
               to . . .  me. . .?

     He starts to age—fast! His hair grows long and gray and 
     brittle. His face sinks.

     Fingernails curl back on themselves. Milky cataracts coat 
     his eyes.

     ELSA gasps and screams.

                           DONOVAN (CONT'D)
               What. . . is . . . happening. . . ?

     His skin turns brown and leathery and stretches across his 
     bones until it splits.

     His skeletal hands reach for ELSA's throat, choking her.

     INDY rushes forward and pushes DONOVAN away. As he falls he 
     BODY BREAKS INTO FLAMES, then SHATTERS AGAINST THE WALL.

                           KNIGHT
               He chose...poorly.

     INDY studies the array of chalices.

                           ELSA
               It would not be made out of gold.

     INDY picks up another cup—a simple earthenware jug.

                           INDY
               That's the cup of a carpenter.

     He and ELSA exchange a look.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               There's only one way to find out.

     INDY goes to the well and fills the earthenware jug with 
     water, then pauses.

     INDY brings the jug to his lips and takes several large 
     swallows.

     A strange sensation overcomes him, a feeling of peace and 
     contentment...and we see his wounds begin to heal.

                           KNIGHT
               You have chosen wisely. But the Grail 
               cannot pass beyond the Great Seal.  
               That is the boundary and the price 
               of immortality.

     CUT TO BRODY AND SALLAH who attend to Henry awaiting Indy's 
     return.

     INDY and ELSA come forward with the Grail.

     The TWO NAZI SOLDIERS are over-awed by the possessors of the 
     Grail. They put down their guns and kneel.

     INDY kneels by HENRY's side and tilts his head forward and 
     holds the Grail to his lips.

     HENRY is too weak to even open his eyes.

     HENRY swallows some of the water. Much of it runs down the 
     corners of his mouth. Finally INDY pours the water over the 
     wound and everyone watches in astonishment as the wound and 
     the blood stain disappear before their eyes. The color returns 
     to Henry's face.

     HENRY's eyes open. The first thing he sees is the Grail and 
     they light up. Then they shift to INDY's face—and they light 
     up even more...

     NAZI SOLDIERS

     run forward. SALLAH points a rifle at them.

                           SALLAH
               Drop your guns. Please.

     The NAZI SOLDIERS drop their weapons at their feet and raise 
     their arms in surrender.

                           INDY
                    (to HENRY)
               Dad, come on. Get to your feet.

     ELSA

     steps forward and picks up the Grail. She turns to INDY, her 
     face alight with possession of the Grail.

                           ELSA
               We have got it. Come on.

     ELSA steps onto the edge of the Great Seal.

                           INDY
               Elsa! Elsa, don't move!

                           ELSA
               It's ours, Indy. Yours and mine.

                           INDY
               Elsa, don't cross the Seal. The Knight 
               warned us not to take the Grail from 
               here.

     A RUMBLING SOUND IS HEARD and the ground roars and shifts. 
     Dirt falls from the ceiling of the cavern. ELSA falls on the 
     Great Seal. The Grail bounces away from her grasp. She reaches 
     for it and the ground beneath her begins to SPLIT OPEN. ELSA 
     slips into the crevasse. She screams.

     ELSA is hanging perilously in the abyss, with the Grail almost 
     within her reach.

     As her hands lose their grip, INDY just manages to one of 
     them, he himself sliding forward across the slanted floor.

                           HENRY
               Junior!  Junior!

     With her free hand, ELSA is trying to get the Grail. INDY 
     can't save her unless she gives him her free hand. She has 
     to choose.

                           INDY
               Elsa. Elsa don't. Elsa. Elsa.  Give 
               me your other hand, honey. I can't 
               hold you.

                           ELSA
               I can reach it. I can reach it...

     Her hand begins to slip from Indy's grasp.

                           INDY
               Elsa! Give me your hand. Give me 
               your other hand!

     ELSA just manages to touch the Grail. In doing so, she has 
     tipped the balance too far—INDY slides down another yard, 
     Elsa loses her grip and falls screaming to her death.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
                    (horrified)
               Elsa!!

     Now the ledge INDY lies upon begins to break apart. HENRY 
     grabs one of his hands as Indy struggles to reach the Grail 
     with the other.

                           HENRY
               Junior, give me your other hand!

     I can't hold on!!

                           INDY
               I can get it—I can almost reach it, 
               Dad.

     INDY looks down into the black bottomless pit beneath him 
     from which nothing can ever be retrieved.

                           HENRY
               Indiana. Indiana!!

     INDY snaps his look up to his father. His father has never 
     called him this before.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
                    (very calmly)
               ... let it go...

     INDY abandons the Grail and grabs onto HENRY with both hands.

     HENRY pulls him up to safety.

     THE GRAIL KNIGHT

     looks through the falling debris to INDY and HENRY. SALLAH 
     and BRODY rush from the crumbling Temple.

                           INDY
               Dad. . .

     The GRAIL KNIGHT raises his arm to HENRY.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Please, Dad...

     INDY and HENRY down the passageway just as a huge stone column 
     tumbles down upon the spot where they stood. The GRAIL KNIGHT 
     lowers his arm as he watches them leave.

147   EXT. ENTRANCE TO MOUNTAIN TEMPLE - AFTERNOON                147   

     INDY, HENRY, SALLAH and BRODY emerge from the Mountain Temple 
     through the Grecian Facade.

     From within the Mountain Temple, the ROAR OF WALLS CAVING IN 
     IS HEARD. A cloud of dust and smoke billows out from the 
     entrance.

     HENRY turns to INDY.

                           HENRY
               Elsa never really believed in the 
               Grail. She thought she'd found a 
               prize.

                           INDY
               What did vou find, Dad?

                           HENRY
               Me?... Illumination.

     HENRY and INDY mount their horses. Henry turns back to his 
     son.

                           HENRY (CONT'D)
               What did you find, Junior?

               That's his name. Henry Jones, Junior.

                           INDY
               I like Indiana.

                           HENRY
               We named the dog Indiana.

                           BRODY
               May we go home now, please?

               The dog!?
                    (laughs)
               You are named after the dog...

                           INDY
                    (embarrassed)
               I've got a lot of fond memories of 
               that dog.

     A moment passes as they all ready their mounts and SALLAH 
     continues to laugh at INDY.

                           INDY (CONT'D)
               Ready?

                           HENRY
               Ready.

               Uh-huh.

                           HENRY
               After you, Junior.
