In the "movie" scene at the beginning, the barracks area from Gomer Pyle USMC can be seen. That outdoor location was situated next door to the outdoor Stalag camp. See more »


During the birthday party scene, "Commandant' Schultz is giving a model of the battleship Bismark. The Bismark was sunk by the Royal Navy before the US entered the war, so it is unlikely it would have been referred to as 'unsinkable.' Her sister ship, the Tirpitz, was still afloat (assuming that it was before Nov. 1944), so the model could have been a representation of that vessel. See more »

An American actor is shot down by the Germans
3 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this rather humorous episode, the German have shot down a plane that is occupied by American actor, Major Buckles (Alan Oppenheimer), and Klink starts preparations to have Buckles star in a German propaganda film at the prison camp.

At first the film is to be featuring how the prisoners are so well treated by their German Commandant wish of course will star Klink as himself. But soon it will change to where Hogan is the director of the film with the purpose of blowing up a strategic bridge located not far from camp. And during the production we can expect some funny situations as the filming of the movie begins.

At first I was not sure that this episode was going to be of any interest. But the way that Oppenheimer played his part as the actor that hams up any scene, the story started to grow. Even though the ending is so far-fetched that no one will believe, it was still a nice get-a-way from the worries of the day. Good watch.
