So last night I was researching where some Nazi Brass might have been manufactured (yes the SS marked brass). So backtracking it looks as though it would have been manufactured at the ammunition plant at Buchenwald which used slave labor from the concentration camp to manufacture it. Brass with two bad stories attached potentially.

So in researching the layout of Buchenwald I come across famous people who where held there. Guess who is on the list. Robert Clary (Cpl. Louis LeBeau). So I pulled up his Wiki biography. Now I know why when he would say "I hate the bosch" and spit, it was so convincing. Pretty amazing he would do a comedy about a Stalag or Concentration camp. Louis always came off as somewhat of a tuff little shit. I guess he is actually a lot bigger and tougher than most.

I know, it is like clock work. Grab snack, perch on couch, 10pm and blam, I can watch that episode again for 11,214th time. The wife has a chalkboard and she keeps track. That reminds me...shit, I'm late!

I heard this some time back about Clary. I always wondered how it must have been a challenge to make jokes about the people who had slaughtered your friends. I also have wondered how it was for Audy Murphy to make "To hell and back". Another tough little shit.

I love Hogan's Heroes.

Werner Klemperer's family moved to the US from Austria in 1935. His father was Jewish. Klemperer was an entertainer in the army during WWII https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werner_Klemperer
John Banner escaped the nazis and he served as a supply sgt. in WWII. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Banner#World_War_II
Bob Crane was too young for WWII
Leon Askin (Burckhalter) was also an Austrian Jew and served in the US Army in WWII https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leon_Askin

John Banner a supply Sergeant. That explains why our troops lost weight. The shipments were being taste tested reroute.

I need to look into up Hochstetter. I saw him in a couple of old movies and he always played a guy who had the wrong answers at the right time. Typecasting. The movies were quite a bit older than the series.

Imagine trying to sell a Nazi Comedy TV pilot in this day and age.
Be like pitching a comedy about slavery.
(In his prime, Chapelle could have probably pulled that off.)

One thing the Jewish actors agreed on was that the Nazi's would have to be portrayed as bumbling idiots and would be outsmarted in each episode.

"If that’s not weird enough, it turns out that Robert Clary, who played a character named LeBeau, had actually been imprisoned for three years in a Nazi concentration camp."

Honestly, I think he was having the last laugh at them.

In other Hogan's Heroes news:

I grew up on a steady diet of Hogan, Gilligan's Island and the Brady Bunch. Explains a lot.

I thought I had a rough childhood. At least we at least had McHale's Navy. And in glorious black and white no less.

Cool info I did not know about Clary.
Thanks for sharing.

In 1972 I had history teacher with a last name of Moskowitz. I assumed he was Jewish because he stated on more than one occasion that he did not approve the Hogan's Heros because they did not portray how evil and sinister they actually were, and he'd lost some relatives to the ovens. He was the right age, about 50 years old in 1972.

Oh, McHale's Navy, F-Troop, Gomer Pyle USMC and a few others were in there too.

The old country only got color TV when I turned 11...
