    Grail Diary from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Grail Diary from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. (Paramount, 1989) An original Holy Grail diary kept by "Dr. Henry Jones" (Sean Connery) in Steven Spielberg's adventure epic, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The film follows "Indiana" (Harrison Ford) and Henry on an adventure spanning from Nazi Germany to the Canyon of the Crescent Moon in search of the Biblical Cup of Christ. Throughout the journey, the Jones's reference the diary that Jones, Sr. has been keeping on the Grail's whereabouts his entire life. This prop diary is hand made with a brown studio-distressed calfskin cover and approximately 114 carefully aged pages inside. Some of the pages are duplicated but the manuscript is almost entirely filled with images, etchings and scribbled notes documenting the myths and legends of the Grail and the Knights that guarded it. Some pages have been color-washed to suggest Dr. Jones may have taken great pains in documenting his quest. The diary also features "add-in" pieces, including a blue train ticket and dollar bill, all of which are original to production. A very detailed and realistic prop. Comes with an LOA from legendary prop maker Keir Lusby, whose studio, Keir Lusby Props, created the diary as well as other prominent pieces in the film. The diary remains in fine condition and is a recognizable and iconic piece of the beloved franchise.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
