There's a series of portraits of actors in old military uniforms, the first I was aware of was Bill Murray. Would I be correct in thinking that the uniforms are based on those of Prussian generals of the Napoleonic Wars?

I believe they are actually based on a series of portraits of Russian generals who participated in the 1812 campaign. They just substitute the celebrity's face for the original.

I, for one, would follow Bill Murray into Hell.

That would make sense as the post 1808 Prussian army uniforms were heavily influenced by Russian military fashion.

He should have been commissioned just for that address to the troops in Stripes. It's up there with Patton.

The Pegg and Rickman ones were the best.

I sort of like Jean Reno.

I like the Christopher Walkin as Russian Field Marshal one myself

Hell, yes. On to the golf course, no.

Well I think we saw Bill Murray's leadership capabilities in Stripes. "Datz da Factz Jack !"
