Ivan Dixon: Beyond Hogan's Heroes

by Natalie Pompilio - posted on Legacy.com

When Ivan Dixon died March 16, 2008, at 76, many remembrances identified him primarily as the actor who played prisoner of war Staff Sgt. Ivan Kinchloe on TV's Hogan's Heroes. But Dixon's career went far beyond that one sitcom, which ran from 1965 to 1970. Active in the civil rights movement, he served as president of Negro Actors for Action. His political and organizing efforts "helped to integrate television," according to Reel Black Talk: A Sourcebook of 50 American Filmmakers.

Holiday Surprise!

Macmillian has releasedvarious electronic versions of Brenda Scott Royce's book "Hogan's Heroes: Behind the Scenes at Stalag 13"

Hogan's Heroes: The Unofficial Companion [Kindle Edition]

Barnes and Noble Nook

Apple iBook


Special note from Brenda Scott Royce:

I’m thrilled that Macmillan has decided to issue an electronic version of “Hogan’s Heroes: Behind the Scenes at Stalag 13!” It’s been many years since the paperback edition was available in bookstores, and nowadays you can only find it online from resellers charging three or more times the original cover price. I often get e-mails from “Hogan’s” fans asking if they can buy a copy directly from me. (I dearly wish I had a couple cartons of the book for sale, but I wasn’t so forward-thinking to buy them up when I had the chance!) I still have hopes of an updated paperback re-release in the future but for now I am happy that it’s available at an affordable price for people inclined to read e-books. The e-book is the same content as the paperback; the publisher did not ask me to do an update. But I think it’s a great source of information about the show and its creation, cast, writers, episodes, etc. People looking for the latest updates on the cast or other Hogan’s news need look no further than your terrific website. Thanks again for keeping it up! Happy Holidays!

Vote for Bob Crane

Bob Crane

American Radio Personality, Musician,
Actor, and Director

Innovative, cutting edge, and way ahead of his time, Bob Crane has been called a radio genius by those who worked with him and knew him well. He is one of radio's unsung pioneers, spending 15 consecutive years behind the mic from one coast to the other and staying close to the broadcasting medium for his entire life. During those years, he did things in radio that had rarely, if ever, been done before, such as getting special permission from the Broadcast Engineers' Union to play his own records. Further, while he prepared extensively for his show, everything he did on the air—every sound effect, gimmick, joke, skit, and quip—was spontaneous. Nothing was rehearsed. While he is perhaps most recognized for his role as Colonel Robert E. Hogan on Hogan's Heroes, Bob Crane can be credited for paving the way for radio personalities and disc jockeys for generations to come.
