I knew my favorite smart aleck surgeon had to be born in the U.S.A.! He's got the attitude of a boy from the Bronx.

I knew Alan Alda was born here but thought that Leslie Neilson was US born too, little did I know that. First try correct.

Leslie Nielsen was born in Canada.

I got it right, only because I knew Alan Alda was from New York. I had no clue some of the other choices weren't born in the US.

My first guess was wrong, but I got my second pick correct. What shocked me was the actor's real name!

Alan Thicke, Michael J. Fox and William Shatner are Canadian. John Banner aha Schultz is a Holocaust survivor.

Although he did lose family in the death camps, you might be confusing him with Robert Clary (LeBeau) who was himself interned and lost most of his family in the camps as well. Strangely enough, although Banner (Sgt. Schulz), Werner Klemperer (Col. Klink), and Leon Askin (Gen. Burkhalter) were from Germany or Austria, they had all left before the war and served in the United States military during WW2.

The biggest shock I ever got concerning Hogan's Heroes was finding out the actor who played Major "What is this man doing here?" Hochstetter wasn't German--he was born and raised in Nashville! (By the way, Major, the colonel was always there at Stalag 13 because he lived there. Place was escape-proof, don't you know.)

Took 5 tries, but I got it LOL On a separate note, I want to give a shout out to Michael J. Fox! Back to the Future is still 1 of my favorite trilogies to date. I am currently reading "We Don't Need Roads: The Making of the Back to the Future Trilogy" and it's excellent! :)

Just saw an episode of What's My Line with Alan Alda on the panel. The mystery guest was Joey Adams. They discussed that Joey and Robert Alda (Alan's dad) worked together in the hotels upstate and Joey babysat Alan when he was six months old. According to imdb: Alan Alda was born on January 28, 1936, in Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA as Alphonso Joseph D'Abruzzo. (Not da Bronx!)
