    More recent: Enemy at the Gates.

    My best oldie: The Longest Day.

    Most of them are fun to watch but nothing earth shattering.

    Werner Klemperer (Klink) and Robert Clary (LeBeau) both spent time in concentration camps. LeBeau always wore sleeves because of the tattoo on his arm.
    They were always ready to make the Nazis look foolish
