"Don't get clever, Boris, you don't know 'im!"―George McHale[src]
Disguised as American serviceman "Hoover", a Russian soldier accompanied his superiors, Colonels Colonel Dovchenko and Spalko, to infiltrate Nevada's Hangar 51 in 1957. During Indiana Jones' escape, Hoover and Mac drove at Jones' oncoming Dodge M-37 in their staff car; Mac warned the Russian not to get clever. Jones didn't swerve and the cars collided headfirst.
Behind the scenesEdit
Given that "Boris" was a name commonly associated in American culture for being Russian, it is more likely that "Boris" was just a quick nickname Mac thought up for him, than being his actual Russian name.
The role of "Hoover" was played in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull by uncredited stuntman John Dixon.
According to the insignia on his shirt, "Hoover" was pretending to be a Sergeant First Class.
