Mel Brooks' remake of Ernst Lubitsch's To Be or Not to Be


Recommended Posts

(Question: Who played Nazis in more movies, Sig Ruman or Conrad Veidt?)


Well, since Veidt died in '43 and Ruman was still doing it 10 years later in Stalag 17...


Good point, and so I guess that "Concentration Camp Ehrhardt" wins the Hollywood Iron Cross.  It's also interesting to note that while they both played Nazis, Ruman's Face of The Enemy was usually one of farcical ineptness, whereas Veidt's was usually the Nazi version of the villain who tied the girl onto the railroad tracks, cackling and twirling his mustache as he left her there to die.
