Werner Klemperer is excellent in this episode.

Hold on to your senses in this show because most of the things are going to be hard to comprehend. John Banner, our lovable Schultz, will be playing a duel role as he also take on another character as a German scientist named Brauner. Brauner is wanting to defect but is being followed by the Gestapo. He meets with Hogan who comes up with a rather silly plan of housing the defector at Stalag 13.

The gang gets together and makes Klink believe that Hitler is coming to the camp for security reasons. He will only be staying 24 hours at the camp but no one is to bother him or even look at him. This will let Hogan bring Brauner into the camp where the rest of the plot will play out. When Major Hochstetter from the Gestapo arrives in camp there is going to be fireworks.

The plot is an old story that has been played out many times in books and television. And the story, by itself, would have been a less than average offering from the writers. But when you have the exchange between Klink and Hochstetter it makes for a enjoyable offering. Werner Klemperer does an excellent job in this episode where nearly every time he opens his mouth comedic saying are forthcoming. Between the writing and his portrayal of the character, Werner Klemperer boosted this show from below average to excellent. Good watch.
