Did You Know?


When Olgamshows the fuel plant to Col. Hogan and his men, it is well lit, including warning lights atop all four towers. There would have been very little lighting so that the plant would be difficult to find at night, when the bombers are always shown flying their missions. See more »

Another routine script
27 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this routine script we have yet another fuel plant, that happens to be located right near the prison camp, that needs to be destroyed. With the Allied bombers tied up, the duty will belong to Hogan and his gang.

The head of the fuel plant, General Von Treger, is going to have his living quarters in the Stalag. The General is a big card player and invites Hogan over to play cards so they can have a fourth person. During the card game Hogan will set his plan into motion so the task can be completed. But General Von Treger is more crafty than Hogan thought.

This plot has been played out many times during the four year run of the show. It's either a fuel plant, rocket plant, or ball-bearing plant-- it all runs together. The only change is how Hogan will accomplish getting past the Germans. Here knock-out pills are used to make the enemy fall asleep. And in something from the 'Twlight Zone', in unison they wake up like nothing happened. Not believable but in a comedy sitcom writers and take such leaps.
