This Gestapo agent accompanied Colonel Vogel aboard the D-138 zeppelin in search of Indiana Jones and his father. Although Vogel was thrown out by Jones, 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, 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 role of the Gestapo was played by Pat Roach.
- The sequence in which he is killed was cut from the final version of the film but remains in the novelization and the comic book. He still remains in the film, as the person accompanying Vogel on the ground, trying to halt the takeoff of the zeppelin.
