Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, released in 1989, was the third installment of the Indiana Jones movie franchise which, unlike the second movie, was a huge commercial success and the biggest box-office hit of the trilogy.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was a father and son adventure with Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford, teaming up with his dad, Sean Connery.
After the lukewarm response The Temple of Doom had Spielberg and Lucas decided to return to the original format, opting for a lighter, more tongue in cheek Indiana than the darker side shown in the Temple of Doom.
Harrison Ford again returned as the famous archeologist adventurer Dr. Jones in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade while Oscar winner Sean Connery played the role of Henry Jones Sr. , his father, who refers to Indiana as just "Junior" much to Indiana's annoyance.
The father and son power duo was an excellent combination with the elegance of Sean Connery and the charm of Harrison Ford and was a big factor in the success of the Last Crusade.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was not in fact the last movie of the series as in 2008 a new movie, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, was released with Harrison Ford yet again in the pivotal role of Indiana.
