"Idiot! Idiot!"―René Belloq[src]
The Blond Driver was a German corporal who served as the driver of the Mercedes-Benz 320 carrying Belloq, Dietrich and Toht that headed up the convoy taking the Ark of the Covenant from Tanis to Cairo. His driving skills kept the staff car ahead of the truck after Indiana Jones overtook it, but Jones finally rammed him off the road. After being yelled at by Belloq, he managed to get the car going again, but by the time they caught up to Jones at Cairo, he had hidden the truck in Omar's garage.
Behind the scenes Edit
- According to the Marvel comics adaptation, he is a corporal. His name "Blond Driver" comes from Lawrence Kasdan's script for the film.
- The Blond Driver never appears in LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures. In his place is an Enemy Soldier, as all the Nazi soldiers are replaced by the enemy soldiers and enemy officers.
