Rudolph Hoess (John Banner) is depicted as an SS Standartenfuhrer (Colonel) early in the war. At the time; he was actually an SS Sturmbannfuhrer (Major) and only made Obersturmbannfuhrer (Lt Col) at the end of the war. See more »
The most chilling scene is to see the SS characters of Werner Klemperer and John Banner (Four years before "Hogan's Heroes") matter of factly greeting the Jewish arrivals to the death camp. The contrast between the high comedy of their work together later on belied how easy a shift of perspective of the Third Reich could be achieved. I recommend this film just for this extremely chilling scene alone.
