Already added to my YouTube collection!!

Unfortunately,  the real Oberleutnant Von Werra didn't survive his expoits for long after his return to Germany.

If memory serves, he was killed on a routine flight in 1941 following engine failure on his Bf-109!!

RIP.   The One That Got Away,     and Flight of the Phoenix.    I'll have to watch both at the weekend.

I found the book The One That Got Away by Kendall Burt and James Leasor - whilst at school.  Oh where is that copy now?

There were more movies than that, and people who knew him claim there was much more than just the actor.

From visiting an elite school in the third Reich to speaking up against right wing extremism. And in case you get to talk to make-up artists or camera men who worked with him, they are full of praise.
