: : He could fit his gun in the holster, he was just holding it so it wouldn't fall out. Here are some other crusade bloopers though. (there's more I know, but here's just a couple):

: : How can they open their eyes in PETROLEUM?

: : When Indy's hanging on the side of the tank, the reason he couldn't clim up the first time is because the strap from his satchel was stuck. But once that tank turns he just clims straight up with no problem at all!

: Well, point 1, regarding the gun, so? Yes, it would fall out, I'd hold it too. How is that a blooper? Point 2, petroleum is lighter than water. The flamable liquid was floating on the surface, they were under the surface. Watch any WWII movie where there are oil fires around ships. Fire on top, water underneath. Point 3 was covered a long time ago on the forum, but after watching the 3rd movie again this past weekend (and it had been a while since I had watched it), you can see it drop below his arm as he climbs, clearing the barrel of the tank. Granted, it's fast, but it is there. The only thing that ever disturbs me about the scene under the library is who in their right mind would carry a lit Zippo lighter over a KNOWN pond of flamable liquid. As my family says everytime we watch this movie, "Where's his flashlight?!!" Regards. Michaelson

Well, as long as we're on the subject of Last Crusade errors, I'd
like to inform everybody that there are no catacombs under the city of
Venice. As I recall reading somewhere, Venice is built on a thousand or
so small islands. Something to that extent, anyway.
Michaelson is right in saying that the petroleum would float at
the top of the water, much like putting cooking oil in a bowl of water,
it only stays on the surface.
Check this out. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, but thanks to editing,
we do not see the Brother of the Cruciform Sword, who deftly leapt onto
Indy's boat as it left the dock, slide across it and continue, into
the water. There's no way that anyone can say this is not so. If you
don't believe me, go put Crusade in the VCR and check. There's no way
that guy made it!!! But we don't see it, though.
Another thing, when Indy and Henry are flying in the plane, there's
no way Indy's fedora would have stayed on his head in that wind. It
would have blown off the minute he crawled out of the zeppelin. If
any of you have the Last Crusade making of... video, then you've seen
the deleted footage of the tank/horse chase where Indy's hat blows off
about twenty times. Harrison had to put a headband on and staple the hat
to it!!!
If I think of anything else, I'll let you know.
