"Alaaaaaaaaaarm!"―Female Officer at Castle[src]
While trying to escape from the fiery blaze consuming the dining room of Castle Brunwald in 1938, Indiana Jones and his father, Henry, accidentally triggered a secret passage through the fireplace and stumbled upon a communications room where a female officer led the monitoring of Nazi agents and saboteurs in Czechoslovakia and Poland, in preparation for blitzes into both countries.
The officer noticed the Joneses and when they smiled nervously at her, she returned it with a rather toothy grin of her own before alerting her men. The Nazis pursued the Joneses back through the passageway, where Indiana used a bust of Adolf Hitler to jam the door, trapping the female officer and her men in the burning dining room and leaving them to the will of the flames.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Female Officer at Castle was portrayed by Nicola Scott in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. During the development of Jeffrey Boam's original script for the film, her role was fulfilled by a Radioman. The officer's only English line in the film, "Alaaaaaaaaaarm!", was not dubbed in the language of some international territories such as Latin Spanish.
Although the character's rank is never mentioned in the film itself, her epaulettes indicate that she is a Lieutenant, although it's unclear what grade.
Her presence and position in the film, as she is shown to give orders to the other soldiers in the room, is anachronistic as the real Schutzstaffel didn't allow women any position of power in 1938, the year in which the film is set.
She doesn't appear in Rob MacGregor's novelization. There, all of the Nazi communications officers are males. She is too absent from LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures, in which she is replaced with various male Nazi officers and an Enemy Radio Operator.
