Following the capture of the Ark of the Covenant, Colonel Herman Dietrich assigned the task of executing Sallah Mohammed Faisel el-Kahir to a young soldier who took Sallah away to a secluded spot and prepared to shoot him. However, he was unable to bring himself to kill Sallah, and let him go.
Behind the scenesEdit
The scene involving the Young Soldier's inability to murder Sallah was cut from the film, despite David Wisniewitz and Karen Allen calling it the greatest moment since the film began. However, Kreidt still can be seen amongst the soldiers standing around the entrance to the Well of the Souls.
