After the "Heroes" enter the bank vault there is a large amount of mortar and brick debris lying on the shelves. They fit the bricks back into the wall to hide the hole but make no effort to hide the debris. As soon as the money was found missing the hole would have become obvious as would the matching hole in the girl's apartment wall. See more »

Isn't It Always A Woman!
6 February 2017 | by thejcowboy22See all my reviews

I know I know most politically correct persons of the world consider this Television comedy disrespectful and downright incredulous.Putting that criticizing aside, the appeal of this anti- Nazi fantasy shows, no matter how bad the odds are stacked against Hogan (Bob Crane), Hogan and his Heroes always come through under extreme circumstances. Our episode starts out with an explosion below the barracks as a stunned Sargent Kinchloe (Ivan Dixon), mistakenly shook what he thought was a harmless bottle of shoe polish but the content inside were Nitroglycerin. What made it explode was the what was written on the bottle (SHAKE WELL). The explosion did minimal damage to the tunnel below but knocked out their radio. Hogan in his usual way manipulates the always flustered Nazi commandant Klink (Werner Klemperer) to put on the BBC broadcast of that days news which included a message to Hogan and his troupe. The Commandant, with a little verbal prodding from Hogan puts on the radio full blast for all to hear and the information needed for their next assignment. An air drop that evening with a bag of money valued at 100,000 marks to be delivered in town to a Ludwig Strasser (Theodore Marcuse) who in exchange will give Hogan disguised as plumber the map containing the new rocket launch sights. Unfortunately the night before during lights out Commandant Klink's surprise inspection startled Corporal Newkirk (Richard Dawson), by hiding the newly purchased cash in the wood stove in the center of the barracks. Sargent Shultz (John Banner) was responsible to make sure the lights go out at their usual hour. Klink asks Shultz for his three day pass and then sets it on fire and throws the burning pass into the stove where the newly purchases money was hidden causing the cash to burn . With the money destroyed and no deal on an advance for the map . Hogan and his men slip into action and pull off an improbable bank heist involving a lonely Fraulein. Shear Hogantry at it's best!
