OSS Commander

We're Getting Mutants in the MCU - The Loop


The OSS Commander was an American [of Strategic Services|Office of Strategic Services] (OSS) commanding officer that negotiated with Hans Landa his surrender in exchange for allowing [Kino|Operation Kino] to continue, that would result in killing the German High Command and ending the war.



After Aldo Raine was captured by Hans Landa, Landa decided to make a deal with the OSS, and, in return, he'll let Operation Kino succeed. Raine called the OSS commander via a radio from the building where Landa took him and Utivich. After Landa enumerated his requests, the OSS officer asked to speak with Raine. Landa gave the phone to Raine. The OSS commander told Raine that Landa and his man will put them into a truck and drive to the Allied lines, where Landa will surrender to him and he'll drive them to him for briefing. The officer ends the message by saying "Over and out".


  • When Lt. Raine is speaking to the OSS commander over the radio, the general ends the transmission by saying, "Over and out." This is incorrect radio protocol in the U.S. military. The proper procedure is for the person ending the transmission to simply say, "Out."

Behind the scenes

The OSS Commander was voiced by Harvey Keitel, who was uncredited.

Despite the similarity between the small role of Harvey Keitel in this film and his role in Pulp Fiction, [Roth|Eli Roth] confirmed that his character is not "The Wolf" in this film. He jokingly added that [L. Jackson|Samuel L. Jackson] does not narrate under the guise of Jules Winfield.[1]
