Apparently he really liked that suit!

A few decades in America can do that to you.

David, if you wait long enough, all suits come back into style eventually.

The terroriser - Faye Dunaway described him as an explosive, mad dog.

Like Faye Dunaway has a lot of room to talk? She sounds scary.

He was a tyrant on the set, although I doubt that was the case when he worked with that Sinatra guy. Word is that Billy Wilder cast Ludwig (as Sinatz dubbed him) as the commandant in "Stalag 17" not because of his acting ability (contrary to what the notoriously vain Preminger chose to believe) but because he had such a tyrannical temperament. Just another of Wilder's inspired little casting jests.
