MeTV remembers Robert Clary with some of LeBeau's best 'Hogan Heroes' episodes
Tune in as we remember Cpl. LeBeau, November 21-23 at 10P | 9C.
MeTV remembers French actor and singer Robert Clary with special episodes of Hogan’s Heroes showcasing his memorable character, Corporal LeBeau.
CBS’ Hogan’s Heroes aired over six seasons from September 1965 to April 1971 and followed an international group of Allied prisoners of war in a covert operation to defeat the Nazis from inside the Luft Stalag 13 camp. Clary portrayed French POW Cpl. Louis LeBeau. He was the last surviving member of the show’s original principal cast.
Born in Paris as the youngest of 14 children in an Orthodox Jewish family, Clary was deported to a Nazi concentration camp as a teenager during World War II. He was the only one of his captured family to survive the war, and later credited his survival to his ability to dance and sing, which kept the German troops entertained.
