Indiana Jones and the Treasure of the Golden Plates

Joseph Smith first found the golden plates on September 22, 1823 (200 years ago this fall), although it would be another four years before he took possession of them.

Indiana Jones, on the other hand, wouldn't complete his university studies until the mid-1920s meaning that not only was he after Joseph Smith, he was at least 100 years after Joseph Smith.

Of course, the real treasure of the golden plates is the Book of Mormon. All Indy would have had to done to get it was to ask. Shoot, he could have picked one up from any number of his neighbors in his Southern Utah home he lived in as a Boy Scout.
