Robert Clary Survived Hogan's Heroes and More


You’ve got to admire the imagination of sitcom writers from the’60s: Hollywood Hillbillies, talking horses, airborne nuns, and witches with twitches.

So who would question setting a comedy in a German POW camp? Not CBS, who had an enormously popular success with “Hogan’s Heroes” when it aired in 1965.

Robert Clary is the last surviving original cast member who also spent 3 years in Nazi concentrations camps during WWII. He talks about it all in this recent interview.

  1. I didn't know Clary was still alive. I enjoyed the article, though he went through such terrible experiences. I remember when he was on The Young & The Restless during its early days.

    Love,
