Hogan's Heroes (1965)
1 quote from The Antique
Starring: Bob Crane, John Banner, Robert Clary, Werner Klemperer
Hogan Gives a Birthday Party - S2-E1
Continuity mistake: The footage of the bomber's nomenclature Hogan and his men commandeer switches several times from during the takeoff, the bombing run, then the end of the bombing run - three different types of planes.
Trivia: A sinister aspect of an otherwise lightheated comedy, but the fact is that Hogan and his men are war criminals. They engage in combat activities behind enemy lines when not in uniform, and worse, while wearing enemy uniforms. The Germans tried that during the Battle of the Bulge and those arrested were shot.
Question: What exactly is the "cooler"?
Answer: It's a slang term for an isolated jail cell. In wartime, POWs who attempted to escape or otherwise thwart their captors might be punished with solitary confinement, often in a cramped, poorly ventilated, windowless space.
