Movie Info

Filmed on location in Holland, The Last Blitzkrieg stars Van Johnson in the atypical role of WW2 German officer Kroner. The son of a high-ranking Nazi official, Kroner is called upon to lead a dangerous mission in the waning days of the war. He and several other English-speaking Germans are dressed in American uniforms and ordered to infiltrate the Allied troops for sabotage purposes. Kroner does what is expected of him, though it is clear that he has become disillusioned with the "glories" of the Third Reich. When his true identity is revealed, Kroner decides to cast his lot with the Americans, leading a figurative "last blitzkrieg" against his fellow Nazis. Of interest is the presence in the cast of several future TV favorites: Dick York (Bewitched) as an American sergeant, Larry Storch (F Troop) as a griping GI and Leon Askin (General Burkhalter on Hogan's Heroes) as Nazi officer Steiner. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
