For Friday the Thirteenth, we needed a right bastid for the "As Seen On TV" feature. After all, thanks to the movie franchise, it's a day given over to the monsters. And no bigger monster existed in history than Adolph Hitler. Michael Sheard's portrayal of Hitler stands as the official one for Toobworld. He played the role of the Fuhrer in the TV movies "Rogue Male", "Hitler Of The Andes", and "The Dirty Dozen: Next Mission", and in two episodes of the series 'The Tomorrow People'.

Sheard also played Hitler in "Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade", a theatrical release. But it has been absorbed into the TV Universe because of the series 'The Indiana Jones Chronicles' and a TV movie extension of that series starring Harrison Ford again as Indy, "Young Indiana Jones And The Mystery Of The Blues".

Well, that's enough of this monster... for now. I'll have more later today, but in the meantime.....

To Hell, Hitler!
