Is the Nazi with the scar on his face the same character as....?
This is probably my imagination, but remember the scary-looking Nazi who Natalie encounters several times in Lisbon? The one with the scar on his face?
Well, in "War and Rememberence," when Natalie (played now by Jane Seymour) is let off the train at Auschwitz and his waiting with the thousands of other prisoners to be selected for either slave labor or extermination, the SS officer who looks at her for a long moment and then ultimately assigns her to slave labor looks like that same actor. And I got to thinking: Did the filmmakers intend on it being the same character? Probably not, considering the five years that elapsed between the two films and the fact that it was a minor subplot in the original. But it would have been a horrifyingly ironic plot point if that's what they intended: the sadistic Nazi thug who frequently took pleasure in frightening her in Lisbon, who Byron almost got into a fight with, being the same one who now decides her fate.
