Dr. Jones is played by Sean Connery in the 1989 film Indiana Jones: The Last Crusade. He is hired by Walter Donovan who has found the tablet which may lead to the location of the secret Holy Grail. He has put a package in the mailbox which undercover Nazi agents were unable to find. Henry later finds out that his friend Dr. Elsa Schneider is a Nazi working for the other Nazi Walter Donovan. Later, while working with her in his library, he is captured by the Nazis and taken to the castle Brunwald. Later he is saved of course by his son, Indiana Jones. They have a funny scene in the castle Brunwald where he and Indiana are arguing while sitting on a chair and on fire. He then tells Indiana that the Grail must not get into the wrong hands and they head to Berlin where they try to complete there adventure. Later in the movie he is shot by a Nazi; but then when they find the Holy Grail then Indiana heals his wounds just in time. Throughout the movie he and Indiana have fun times and in the end they have no grail.
In Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which is set in the year 1957, Indiana says "First Dad, then Brody, now even Mac is as good as dead.", symbolizing that his father has since then died.
