LEON ASKIN
B/w photo of actor Leon Askin in a German officer's uniform, signed with "all my best wishes" in 1983. Askin was SS General Albert Burkhalter on Hogan's Heroes and the voice of Fearless Leader on Rocky and His Friends.
Inscribed photograph signed "To John Christopher/all my best wishes/Leon Askin/March 1983" in blue ink. Lead pencil notations on verso in unknown hand. B/w, 8x10¼ overall, 7¼x9¼ image, one surface. In 1983, Askin appeared in the American horror parody Frightmare and the Austrian cops-and-robbers parody Kottan ermittelt. Austrian-born actor Askin (1907-2005), born Leo Ashkenasy, got his start in Viennese theatre in the late 1920s and 1930s. However, like many German and Austrian actors, he fled to the U. S. when Adolf Hitler came to power. He made his first appearance on the New York stage in 1940 and his first TV appearance in 1950. Again, like many Austrian and German actors, Askin was often cast as a fascist, a Nazi or an Eastern European/probable Commie, despite the fact that he fled from Hitler's Nazi Germany. Askin appeared in over 130 movies and TV shows between 1950 and 2001. His notable TV roles include SS General Albert Burkhalter on Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971) and the voice of Fearless Leader on Rocky and His Friends (1959-1960). Many of his movie appearances after World War II were in German movies, but American audiences will probably recognize him from the Bob Hope-Bing Crosby "Road" movie Road to Bali (1953), Danny Kaye's Knock On Wood (1954), Billy Wilder's East German-meets-West-German comedy One. Two, Three (1961), John Goldfarb Please Come Home (1964) and What Did You Do in the War, Daddy? (1966). Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Negative and reproduction errors in image. Light impressions and scratches on image (not visible head-on). Impressions from notations on verso show through (not visible head-on). Otherwise in fine condition.
