    Schultz: Col. Hogan if you ever escape...
    Hogan: Yeah?
    Schultz: Be a good fellow and take me with you.

    I was impressed by Kenneth Branagh's portrayal of Reinhard Heydrich in 'Conspiracy'.

    Must admit Branagh did a brilliant job but Feinnes in Schindler is a totally terrifying person in my opinion...

    Eeek!

    That man is crazy looking. Nightmare central! :eek: He may not be the definitive Nazi but he looks scarier than Freddy Cruger.

    Reminds me of the late war joke in Germany that went something like " The war is not over until Göring fits Göbbels´ pants..."

    ;)

    Maximillian Schell as Stransky in Cross of Iron as well as Willi Bittrich in A Bridge Too Far. My favorite by far.

    I think I will have to agree on Maximillian Schell, great embodyment of a german in all of his films.

    Bruno Ganz or Maximilian Schell would get my vote. Schell is excellent in both a Bridge too Far and Cross of Iron (My favourite war film)
