Did You Know?


The "Heroes' have a microphone in Klink's office. It is usually hidden in a picture of Hitler. In this episode the picture has been replaced by a large and colorful wall hanging and the mic is hidden in a rosette at the top. The wall hanging is not used in any other episode. See more »


The stock footage used of transport aircraft dropping paratroopers was of C-119's in arctic markings. The C-119 entered service in 1949, and the arctic markings utilized (including very obvious "U.S. Air Force" painted on the noses of the aircraft) were mid- to late-1950's vintage. See more »


Hogan: Do I have to repeat the orders that were given to us when this happy little band of wandering minstrels was formed?
Newkirk: Sir, all I'm trying to -
Hogan: OK, I will. Quote: You'll assist escaping prisoners, cooperate with all friendly forces, and use every means to harass and injure the enemy. Unquote.

A slow paced episode that was missing the usual flare
24 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode we have a renegade General that has stolen valuable pieces of artwork from Paris and plans to store the valuables in an old abandon mine. The General is using the ruse of saying that he is store ammunition and therefore using the guards from Stalag 13 to protect the loot. But when Hogan finds out about the artwork, his goal is to make sure things go wrong with the General's plans.

Even though the story appeared to be an interesting tale, it just did not come across on film with the flare of past shows. For whatever reason the episode seemed slow paced and by the end of the show things were getting stale. Just was not one of the better episodes.
