The German actor shown in a scene from the TV series Hogan's Heroes
Photograph signed: "Werner/Klemperer" in blue felt. 8x10. Werner Klemperer (1920-2000) was a German-born American actor. He suppressed his German accent to play an all-American character role as the timorous press agent in the 1957 film, Kiss Them for Me. The capture of fugitive Nazi official Adolph Eichmann in 1960 sparked a renewal of interest in war films, and soon Klemperer found himself playing Eichmann (whom he vaguely resembled) in the 1961 quickie, Operation Eichmann. He also essayed a suitably slimy role as a former Nazi jurist on trial for war crimes in 1961's Judgment at Nuremberg. Try though he might to break free of the stereotype, Klemperer was stuck in Teutonic roles, so he resigned himself to re-cultivating his German accent. He worked steadily throughout the 1960s until he found fame on the small screen as the heel-clicking, impervious (and incredibly stupid) Colonel Klink on the television series, Hogan's Heroes (1965-1970). Sticker affixed to verso. Fine condition.
