Portrayed by Enzo G. Castellari

The Obergruppenführer was an unnamed general who participated at the Stolz der Nation film premiere in Paris. He, along with the rest of the crowd died when the cinema exploded.

BiographyEdit

Not much is known about him. He is seen in the cinema lobby, reading from the movie leaflet while showing his adjutant something there.

StoryEdit

Chapter Five - REVENGE OF THE GIANT FACEEdit

The unnamed general is seen in the cinema lobby, behind Aldo Raine and Donny Donowitz, looking in the film presentation card and talking to an unknown person in a tuxedo with a blue stripe on his shirt, his adjutant most likely.

TriviaEdit

  • The general is seen looking at the camera when Aldo shouts "Gorlami". He also looks at Donny when he shouts "Antonio Margheritti"

Behind the scenesEdit

He was played by the Italian director Enzo G. Castellari, who directed the original The Inglorious Basterds.

In a deleted scene, the director Enzo G. Castellari, who in the film plays the role of a Nazi general present at the premiere, shouts "Fire!" from the place where they are sitting in the front row, as soon as the movie screen catches fire. This same line was spoken by the Italian director in his film "The Inglorious Bastards" where he also participated in the guise of appearance. Even if the scene has been omitted, you can see Castellari in the lobby of the cinema, just before Aldo Raine converses with Landa in his "Italian". In addition, according to what is stated by the same Enzo G. Castellari in an interview, the false name of Aldo had to be Enzo Girolami Castellari's real name, but it was crippled Pitt making it "Gorlomi." The question on 'homage to the surname of Castellari is a bit' a mystery since the name specified in the script is just "Gorlomi" and not "Girolami."[1]
