Goofs

The pennants on Kaplow's staff car are about twenty years dated - they are small versions of the Imperial War Banner (Reichskriegsflagge) used until about 1921. The Imperial War Banner used at the time the series is set can be seen on top of Klink's office. See more »

Klink thinks the liberation of the camp is coming quickly
15 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode the camp is visited by General Von Kaplow that has secret military papers in a briefcase that is chained to his arm. Hogan knows that the papers must be important and plans a scheme to photograph the papers and get them back to the Allies.

After making the pictures, it will be hard to get the material to the coast to be picked up by a submarine. But when Hogan makes Klink believe that the Germans are losing the war and an liberation of the Stalag is imminent, Klink turns nice not wanting to make anyone upset. He will do anything that Hogan says.

The part when Klink is thinking his camp is being filmed is some of the funniest scenes we have seen since the start of the series. The script is good, the Hogan scheme are nicely done and the script brings it all together to make an enjoyable program. Good Watch.
