The right rearview soldier was a Nazi soldier who in 1936, under the orders of Colonel Dietrich and the Tough Sergeant, got onto a cargo truck which contained the Ark of the Covenant to defend it from American archaeologist Indiana Jones with his comrades.

Biography Edit

In 1936, after the destruction of the Flying Wing, Colonel Herman Dietrich decided to transport the Ark of the Covenant from Egypt to Berlin via a cargo truck full of Nazi soldiers, including this soldier.[1]

When archaeologist Indiana Jones took control of the truck and killed Major Gobler and his men, this soldier and another took the role of leaders for two of their comrades ordering them to follow them through the edges of the truck to get to Jones and finish off him. Unfortunately for the soldier and his companions, Jones saw them through the rearview mirrors, and in the blink of an eye, his other two companions were knocked off the truck and fell in the steep road.[1]

Clinging tightly so as not to suffer the same fate of his companions, this soldier and his colleague clung tightly to the cover of the truck. At one point, the soldier's feet slipped, but he managed to regain his balance. However, Jones finally got rid from the soldier by hitting him against a weak tree with the truck, catching the soldier's cap between its branches and dumping him down into the steep road.[1]

Behind the scenes Edit

The right rearview soldier was played uncredited by the stuntman Paul Weston in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

In the film's Read-Along Adventure adaptation, the soldiers get shaken off the back of the truck by Indiana Jones after he kicks out the driver.
