Product Description

The inmates of a German World War II Prisoners of War camp conduct espionage and sabotage campaign right under the noses of their warders. While the enemy is often gullible, easily fooled or downright incompetent – the real strength of Hogan’s men are the elaborate ruses and sometimes dangerous lengths they will go to complete their mission.

Amazon.com

"What is this man doing here?" an increasingly agitated Major Hochstetter of the Gestapo demands of Col. Klink (Werner Klemperer) in "War Takes a Holiday," one of the best episodes of Hogan's Heroes' third season (or any season, for that matter). "This man," of course, is Senior P.O.W. Officer Col. Hogan (Bob Crane), who, by now, has the run of Stalag 13, and seemingly, all of Europe. The beginning of the episode, "D-Day at Stalag 13," finds Hogan in London to receive his orders on how his barracks operation will further "tie up" the German general command to distract them from the planned Normandy landing. "You have quite a reputation for the offbeat and the bizarre, and for pulling it off," Hogan is told. And he more than lives up to it over the course of season 3. In "War Takes a Holiday," Hogan and company convince their captors that the war is over. But sabotaging the German war effort is not all fun and games. In "One in Every Crowd," Hogan is threatened with exposure by a barracks traitor, and in "Two Nazis for the Price of One," a top Gestapo officer likewise learns of Hogan's operation, and demands information about the Manhattan Project. These excellent episodes belie Hogan's Heroes unwarranted reputation as a series that treated life in a prison camp as a lark.

This season welcomed back several recurring characters, most notably, Bernard Fox's Col. Crittendon, "the most incompetent British officer in the entire British Navy." Reprising her role as the very suspect White Russian, Nita Talbot was nominated for an Emmy for her performance in "The Hostage." For his commanding performance as Klink, Klemperer was honored with an Emmy this season. As lovable oaf Sgt. Schultz, John Banner enjoyed some of his character's most memorable episodes, including "Sergeant Schultz Meets Mata Hari" and "The Ultimate Weapon." (In "War Takes a Holiday," it is revealed that Schultz was the owner of Germany's biggest toy company!) This five-disc set contains a short but sweet excerpt from a Pat Sajak Show appearance by Klemperer, who reveals one of show business's most fascinating ironies; how a man whose family fled Hitler's Germany became television's most famous and oddly beloved Nazis. --Donald Liebenson

Season 3 of Hogan's Heroes has some of the top ranked episodes, including War Takes A Holiday when Hogan tricks Colonel Klink and Gestapo Major Hochstetter (Whooo eeez theese mahn?) that the war is over so prisoners can escape. In The Ultimate Weapon Colonel Hogan convinces Schultz he has ESP, with the predictable outcome of disaster for the Nazis. Colonel Crittendon shows up in The Crittendon Plan, which only endangers Hogan's smooth running operation. I've been a fan of Hogan's Heroes for 40 years, and can't wait to get each DVD set.

Without a doubt, "War takes a Holiday" is probably the best episode of "Hogan's Heroes" and one of the funniest sitcom presentations ever on television. The absolute absurdity of "Hogan's Heroes" is neatly summed up as Col. Hogan and the boys convince the Germans that the war is over so as to secure the release of some important allied prisoners.

Every one of the classic "Hogan" characters plays his part (with the notable exception of Larry Hovis, who is strangely AWOL this time around) to maximum effect as the prisoners concoct and enact a scheme whereas they isolate and control communication around Stalag 13 and convinice everyone, prisoners included, that World War II has ended. It is especially priceless to see Howard Caine's Major Hochsteter join in the mirth as he unwittingly allows Hogan to secure his staff car for the prisoners' escape, as Hogan suggests it would be a nice gesture..."seeing that the war is over."

The introductory CBS logo is gone, but the show remains in top form. Season three of HOGAN'S HEROES is the point at which the actors have become inseparable from their roles.

More Col. Crittendon, Hochstetter, but less of Hilda. This season featured larger roles for Ivan Dixon, Larry Hovis, Robert Clary, and Richard Dawson.

Some of the best shows of the series appear in this season. Included this this collection are episodes about the snowman tunnel, Schultz conveniently misplacing his rifle while under fire, and Crittendon's assignment to replace Hogan at Stalag 13.

Yes, it is still perpetual winter at Stalag 13. Despite the lush California greenry in the background we still believe that it is freezing cold outside. The actors must have been roasting in their jackets and overcoats. Additionally, you do not have to look too carefully in some of the season three episodes to spot a soundstage or studio warehouse in the background -- towering over the barracks set. Then again, after three years it was becoming difficult to find new camera angles from which to shoot.

Klink still reports to General Burkhalter. Leon Askin, as usual, is great in this role. However, throughout the series' six-year run there was always a question as to why a Luftwaffe colonel reported to a Heer general. We will just have to assume that Burkhalter, whose military duties were never fully described in the series, was the local non-combat Wehrkreis commander. From a military heraldry standpoint it is interesting to note that Burkhalter sports a ceremonial Luftwaffe dagger suspended from his leather belt.
