General Robert Ross was an American general who Indiana Jones befriended during the second World War.

In 1957, after Jones was coerced by Soviet agents to find alien remains in Hangar 51, he was trapped in Doom Town and barely survived. During his subsequent interrogation by FBI agents Smith and Taylor, General Ross arrived and vouched for Jones, insisting that he was not someone who would side with the Communists.

Later, when George McHale revealed to Jones during a chase through the Amazon jungle that he was a double agent working for the CIA, he mentioned that General Ross was Mac's control agent, and McHale had secretly contacted him to bail Jones out of the aftermath of the Hangar 51 intrusion.[1]

Ross later attended Indiana's wedding to Marion Ravenwood.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Robert Ross was played by Alan Dale - who is also known for playing Lost villain Charles Widmore - in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
