    These German soldiers were so stupid! No wonder we won the war... eventually.

    Klink: Barracks Two was under the direct observation of one of my oldest, most trusted, most dependable guards.
    Hochstetter: Good, I'm glad it wasn't Schultz.
    Klink: But it was.

    Also appearing in that ep were Paul Comi (as one of the baddies) and Morgan Farley (as the eccentric old engraver.)

    Ah, I didn't recognize them. In fact, I kept getting distracted by how much Comi reminded me of Tige Andrews.

    Another example of a TOS guest in a prominent role in a highly regarded movie of the era--Lou Antonio falling under Paul Newman, George Kennedy, and J. D. Cannon as the fourth-billed star of 1967's Cool Hand Luke:

    And five spots down from him, we find Morgan Woodward as the iconographically sunglassed "man with no eyes," Boss Godfrey:

    Anybody who doesn't like Morgan Woodward as walking boss Godfrey... spends a night in the box.

    Did he ever say a word in the whole film?

    No, he points or snaps his fingers to communicate.

    A lot of TV people in that movie besides Woodward: McCloud's boss, Pa Walton, Trapper John, Exidor from Mork and Mindy...

    Robert Walker plays an invader in the eponymous series. He freezes the people he touches. He can drink cold beer even in the middle of the desert!

    Robert Walker played an invader called Nick Baxter that was ill! His touch caused humans to freeze to death, even animals as well! He was on his way to meet a landing saucer but it shot him, thinking he was a human perhaps! Don Eitner also guested as an alien that was pursuing Baxter so that the authorities didn't capture him!

    Yeah, it's really creepy when you see him rubbing the old woman's hands, given that it means her death. The aliens didn't seem to attach much value to life. They'd kill themselves at the drop of a hat.

    They lacked emotions and had to learn how to pretend to have them in one of many learning centres throughout the country! I think the two aliens pursuing Baxter only wanted to quell public interest rather than him killing innocent human beings!
