Colonel Hogan leads a ragtag band of POW's caught behind German lines in this popular television comedy. The bumbling Germans give Hogan and his crew plenty of opportunities to sabotage their war efforts. Colonel Klink is more concerned with having everything run smoothly and avoiding any trouble with his superiors (especially anything that might result in his being reassigned and sent to the front) than with being tough on Hogan and his fellow prisoners.

During the opening credits, an African American prisoner is lined up to Hogan's left. When the shot changes and shows "Starring Bob Crane" the same prisoner is now in the row behind Hogan immediately behind his original position. In addition Hogan is lined up on the far right of the line in the opening shot with a prisoner immediately behind him. In the next shot there is nobody behind him and there are prisoners to his right in both rows. See more
