TV

Werner Klemperer, who played the monocled prison camp commandant on "Hogan's Heroes," died on Pearl Harbor Day, December 7, 2000. He was 80. Here's an irony: In real life, Klemperer had been a Jewish refugee from Nazi German in the 1930s, fleeing with his father who was a distinguished conductor and composer. He won two Emmy Awards for his Colonel Klink role, as well as a Tony nomination in 1988 for a role in a revival of Cabaret.
