  • Clever impersonation theme leads to hilarity and a well-planned mission

    9.3
    This episode is the first of a two-part program, a task largely avoided by CBS' blockbuster "Hogan's Heroes."



    A lisping and silly British traitor by the name of Sir Charles Chitterly arrives at Stalag 13 and immediately befriends the bootlicking Kommandant Klink. As the POWs notice Chitterly's startling and uncanny likeness to their prior acquaintance and unwitting accomplice Colonel Rodney Crittendon, a plan begins to unfold.



    The bumbling yet lovable Crittendon is called upon to impersonate Chitterly. In this part of the episode, Crittendon is sold to the viewer as just the moron he is throughout the series. In the end of this first half of "Lady Chitterly's Lover," Crittendon fears that the appearance of Lady Chitterly will blow his cover and fail the mission, a scenario with which he is not unfamiliar.



    The conclusion of this episode holds all answers Crittendon.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This is Col. Crittendon's first appearance in the sixth season. Sgt. Baker became a prisoner at the start of this season. When Baker first hears LeBeau mention Crittendon, he responds "Oh, not Crittendon!" as if he's already heard of him and seen his bungling personally.

    • Schultz wears white gloves and a light-colored braid on his right shoulder in this episode.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Hogan: When you take her in your strong arms, she'll tell ya anything.
      Crittendon: I'm sorry, Hogan, no. There are some things that a British officer does not do.
      Carter: Uh, Colonel Crittendon, would you like to see a picture of her? We found one on Sir Chitterly's wall.
      Crittendon: Sorry, chaps, but an officer's model code... (looks at picture of beautiful Lady Chitterly) is uh... is, uh...

    • Klink: We understood that the General was not arriving until this morning, uh, sir.
      Carter: (as General von Schlom) It is morning, Klink. One o'clock in the morning is morning.
      Klink: One o'clock in the morning is morning, yes sir.
      Carter: (as General von Schlom) Two o'clock in the morning is morning, and three o'clock in the morning is morning and remember that, Klink!!

    • Hogan: LeBeau, shave off his mustache.
      LeBeau: Right.
      Crittendon: My mustache?
      Hogan: It's all right, Crittendon, you can always use it as a goatee.

    • Hogan: That's the way we're going to have to go.
      Newkirk: Oh no, sir. No, no, not that, sir.
      Hogan: You think I'm happy about it, Newkirk? I want you and Carter to go out tonight. Break into Stalag 12 and bring Crittendon back here.
      Carter: Oh, Colonel, no.
      Hogan: Carter, don't you know there's a war goin' on?
      Carter: I know it now, sir.

    • This episode appears third on the VHS collection's "Colonel Rodney Crittendon" volume.

    • The closing credits contain an uncharacteristic voiceover by Bob Crane, announcing that the episode will be continued the following week.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • The title is inspired by D.H. Lawrence's controversial bestseller "Lady Chatterley's Lover". The scandalously explicit novel portrays a lurid affair between a noblewoman and a gamekeeper. The novel was condemned as obscene by courts around the world, but is credited with pushing back the boundaries of censorship. It was published in 1928.
