As American As The Grande Canyon In April
In Inglourious Basterds, Colonel Hans Landa proves to be an able exception to Bridget von Hammersmark's rule that Germans don't speak Italian and I can speak English with a fair first generation Italian-American accent: Can granda Della scala Mounta Soracte or justa Mounta Veneris?
And yes, I wish that I had taken the good advice in Horace's Ode to Thaliarchus while I was still alive, and, like Fermor, gotten into the fur more.
On Top Of Old Smokey,
All Covered With Nazis,
General Heinrich Kreipe
