On June 29,1978, Bob Crane, known to Hogan’s Heroes fans as Colonel Hogan, was found brutally murdered in his Scottsdale, Arizona apartment, on June 29,1978.His eldest son, Robert Crane was called to the crime sceneIn this poignant account of Robert Crane discusses this terrible day, and how he lived with his father’s unsolved murder.But this scenario is just a thread in his tale of growing up in Los Angeles, his difficulties reconciling the good and sordid sides of his celebrity father, and his own way of life.The crane began its career writing for Yes magazine and spent many years interviewing celebrities for Playboy – stars such as Chevy Chase, Bruce Dern, Joan Rivers, and even Koko’s gorilla signing.As a raucous result of a meeting with the Canadian SCTV troupe, he found himself on the shelves of his notebook and tape recorder to enter John Candy’s job – first as a super-again, out of the new publicist; then as a full-time assistant, the confidant, screenwriter, and producer; and finally as one of the Candies of the funeral procession.Through disappointment, loss and sorrow, the Crane is humor and perseverance of brilliance.Beyond great stars and behind-the-scenes revelations, this interesting account of death, survival and renewal in the shadow of the Hollywood sign makes a profound instruction on the desire for love and permanence in a life where things continually escape.In turn shocking and edifying, the Crane is an unforgettable and profoundly human moment.
