In 1938, he accompanied Colonel Ernst Vogel aboard the D-138 zeppelin in search of Indiana Jones and his Henry Walton Jones, Sr.. Vogel was thrown out by Jones from the zeppelin, but the Gestapo Agent remained on board searching for the Joneses. He ran into Jones whilst Jones was disguised as a steward, and Jones knocked him unconscious.
When the zeppelin turned around and began returning to Germany under the orders of the Nazis, the agent, having recovered, spotted Jones and his father and followed them, accompanied by a retired (and drunken) World War I pilot. They tried to follow in a second biplane, but first of all the agent was too heavy and fell through the bottom of the plane, and secondly, the pilot detached the plane without starting the engine, and they both fell to their deaths.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Gestapo Agent was portrayed by the late stuntman and professional wrestler Pat Roach in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Roach previously portrayed the Giant Sherpa and the German Mechanic in Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Chief Guard in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
During the development of the film's original script, written by Jeffrey Boam, the Gestapo Agent, not Ernst Vogel, was going to be the one who tried to arrest Henry Walton Jones, Senior at the zeppelin and throwed out of the window by Indiana Jones.
The sequence in which he is killed along his partner was cut from the final version of the film but remains in the film's novelization and comic book adaptation. He still remains in the film, as the person accompanying Vogel on the ground, trying to halt the takeoff of the zeppelin.
