'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade'

The "Indiana Jones" film franchise has used cliffs in suspenseful sequences many times. One of the most memorable is in 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," when Jones and a Nazi officer, SS-Standartenführer Vogel, are involved in a fistfight atop a tank approaching a cliff.

Long story short, Jones gets off in time and Vogel doesn't, and the evil Nazi rides to his death in spectacular fashion. "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" was a huge hit, which earned $474 million at the worldwide box office, or $884 million in today's dollars.
