We're starting off our TV salute to the movies with a film that some (not me) consider to be the greatest movie of all Time - "Casablanca". There will be four parts to this tribute.
Here's the next installment, a theory of "relateeveety".....
As most cinephiles know, Major Heinrich Strasser was the major antagonist in the classic "Casablanca". He has a televersion as well in the Lux Video Theatre adaptation of the movie. (I'm speaking here of Earth Prime-Time, of course. He existed in other sequels and prequels to the movie, but those take place in other TV dimensions.)
As that was a 60 minute broadcast in 1955, I can only assume at this time that at least his death at the end was still included in the production.
But his family name lived on, at least n Toobworld.
Karl Strasser was a sadistic Nazi who butchered a platoon of American soldiers after they had surrendered. Once the war was ended, the British took him in and gave him a new identity because he allegedly could help them track down Russian spies.
It is the Toobworld Central contention that Karl Strasser was the son of Heinrich Strasser - again, at least in Earth Prime-Time....
