In the same charming manner that might have been used by his "Hogan's Heroes" character Louis LeBeau, actor Robert Clary stepped up on a footstool so he could see over the podium. "I like to be seen also, not just heard," quipped the diminutive Clary to the chuckles of about 100 members of the Valley Jewish Business Leaders Assn. But Clary was not at the Warner Center Marriott on Thursday morning to bring humor. He brought, instead, stories of hunger, suffering, prejudice and hate.

In more ways than one, Robert Clary is a survivor. In real life, the diminutive Parisian-born actor and singer survived three years in concentration camps as a Jewish teenager during World War II. In show business, the 87-year-old has had a long and successful career that has included TV, Broadway, nightclubs and records. Clary remains best known for his role as master chef and French patriot Cpl. LeBeau in the 1965-71 CBS comedy series "Hogan's Heroes," which was set in a German stalag , or POW camp, during WWII.

Sylvie Drake reviewed a video release of "New Faces (1952)" and obviously did not like it, which is fair, as we are entitled to our opinions. However, she made a point of singling out my client Robert Clary, using the phrase that Clary has "blissfully receded." Nothing is further from the truth. Clary has since "New Faces (1952)" appeared constantly on both big and little screens and has graced the stages of the world's theaters. He also tours the United States, giving of his time lecturing to students about the Holocaust, a subject which he knows well, as he survived Hitler's death camps himself when taken from Paris as a young boy. He came home; his parents did not. Clary has not receded.

King of the Soaps Bill Hayes is returning to his throne on "Days of Our Lives"--in the role of Doug Williams that he created in 1970 and abandoned two years ago. (Air date for the royal return: about April 1.) Hayes and wife, Susan Seaforth Hayes, who played his soap wife, Julie Williams, were known as the King and Queen of Soaps. They shocked their fans when they jointly quit (she now toils on "The Young and the Restless").
