I didn’t realize he was still with us till now. He always seemed a man of style and dignity. If that was just an act it was a good one. Orlando Bloom reminds me a bit of the younger Schell

The scene in Judgment at Nuremberg with Schell and Montgomery Clift are some one of the finest moments ever put on film.

We didn’t reply to the exorcism reference because obviously, it didn’t work.

...and I used to get Horst Bucholz mixed up with John C. Holmes, but maybe just because of the name.

Horst was in my favorite movie, "One Two Three." Story was though during the filming, he and Cagney did not get along.

He played Nazi officers better than anyone else because he made them despicable.

Captain Stransky certainly fits the ‘despicable’ role. (Cross of Iron).

Horst was also in one of my favorite movies, THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN, with that other typical American cowboy, Yul Brynner.

Until now, I always thought Col. Brandt (James Mason) in Cross of Iron was Max Schell.

He was great in both Cross of Iron and A Bridge Too Far. He probably would not want to be remembered chiefly for playing Nazi officers. Actually met him very briefly in a hotel lobby in Berlin once. He was very pleasant.

No, he was Hauptmann Stransky, the one to whom James Coburn said, "come with me, I'll show you where the Iron Crosses grow."

Supposedly Cagney hated Buccholtz and their relationship during the making of One, Two, Three was a big reason it was the last movie he ever did! till Ragtime almost 30 years later.

Just a little something for your “gee whiz file”.

“2001-07-19 04:00:00 PDT San Francisco — Mark Hoffman, a San Francisco art dealer who owned one of the city’s oldest art galleries, died at his home in Oakland on Saturday after a long fight with cancer. He was 82.

Born in Canada’s Saskatchewan province in 1918, Mr. Hoffman moved to San Francisco in 1923. During World War II, he served in the U.S. Army and was captain of the 276th Engineer Combat Battalion. He was awarded a Purple Heart for his service at Remagen, Germany.

Fifty years later, The Chronicle’s Herb Caen immortalized Mr. Hoffman’s wartime experiences at Remagen in his column. Allied forces were at the Rhine trying to push into the German heartland — if they could find a bridge that was still standing. Mr. Hoffman was commanding the engineers’ unit that was guarding the only intact bridge, the Ludendorff Railroad Bridge at Remagen, where Allied forces crossed without casualties.

Had the Allies not been able to secure that bridge, thousands of lives probably would have been lost. “

I remember hearing several times, incorrectly, that Schell portrayed “The Most Interesting Man in the World” in the Dos Equis commercials.

Not true of course, but I think the confusion was understandable.

He hasn't been very active of late, but I've always thought of him as the quintessential German SS officer.

Another classic actor rings down the curtain ...
