The three men attempted to kill Indiana Jones, when the archaeologist moved to recover the Ark, but in the end the lieutenant was killed alongside Gobler and the gunner when Jones forced them off a cliff to their doom.
Behind the scenes Edit
In the third draft of the film's script, written by Lawrence Kasdan, this character doesn't exist. Instead, Arnold Ernst Toht is the one in the troop car with Gobler and dies alongside him after falling down the cliff during The Desert Chase. This was cut from the final film, but the film's novelization, comic and storybook adaptations depict this.
Although the character's rank is never mentioned in the film, his epaulettes indicate that he is a 2nd Lieutenant.
