Based is loosely on the movie Stalag 17 (1953), Hogan's Heroes (1965 TV series) [1965-1971]
The general overall scenario is that the prisoner of war camp 1942, Germany. Our cast of characters includes but is not limited to: Col. Robert E. Hogan played by Bob Crane. Col. Wilhelm Klink played by Werner Klemperer (Known for Judgment at Nuremberg) also the son of conductor Otto Klemperer. I have a few of Otto Klemperer's recordings. Sgt. Hans Georg Schultz played by John Banner also played a German sergeant in This Land Is Mine (1943). Helga / Eva / Girl at Party with the Baron (24 episodes, 1965-1971) played by Cynthia Lynn, originally named Zinta Valda Zimilis Hilda / Gretchen played by Sigrid Valdis. Sigrid and Crane were married on the set of the show.
This program series starts out and with campy over-the-top skits. Each episode has just enough time to set up a ridiculous task, executing it in a uniquely outlandish way, in the process; something always goes wrong and is adjusted for the last minute.
