When Indiana Jones broke into one of Castle Brunwald's bedrooms, in an attempt to rescue his father, the Principal SS Officer and two guards burst into the room (another guard watch over the corridor) 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 and to not call him "Junior".
Behind the scenes
In the film's original script written by Jeffrey Boam, the Principal SS Officer at Castle was to be accompanied only by two guards. Also, Indiana Jones was originally going to kill him along his companions. Although this was cut, this fate for the Principal SS Officer at Castle was used in the Last Crusade comic book adaptation.
Although the Principal SS Officer at Castle's rank is never mentioned in the film, his rank insignia would indicate that he is a Sturmbannführer (Major).
Hasbro released an action figure of the Principal SS Officer at Castle, where he is referred simply to as a "German Officer".
