Franklin was one of the soldiers who accompanied Irina Spalko and Dovchenko to Hangar 51 in Nevada, disguised as an American soldier named Franklin. On the way there, he was goaded into a race with Jimmy Keegan despite "Roosevelt's" objections.
Later, Franklin accompanied "Lincoln" and "Hoover" to Doom Town searching for Indy. They heard the air raid siren and Lincoln yelled for them to come on, but as they drove away the nuclear shockwave destroyed their car, killing all three.
Behind the scenesEdit
Franklin was played by an uncredited stuntman, Jon Braver. Like many of the Soviet Special Forces who infiltrated Hangar 51, Franklin shares his name with a United States president.
According to his insignia, "Franklin" was pretending to be a corporal in the U.S. Army.
