When Indiana Jones broke into one of Castle Brunwald's bedrooms, in an attempt to rescue his father, this SS officer and two guards burst into the room and demanded the Grail diary. Following an argument between the father and son, Jones knocked the officer into the wall, took his gun, and shot all three men, prompting Henry to show shock at what his son had done.

Behind the scenes

The SS officer was played by Luke Hanson.

Although the officer is visibly breathing when Indy and Henry run from the room after being knocked down in the film, the novelization of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade specifically has the officer being shot along with the guards. Indiana Jones: The Ultimate Guide also lists him as killed.

This officer has an action figure made by Hasbro, where he is referred to as a "German Officer."

His rank insignia would indicate that he is a Sturmbannführer (Major).
