It turns out there are like 18 variations on the lyrics to "Colonel Bogey March," the whistled tune in The Bridge on the River Kwai. In some versions Hitler has one "ball," in others it's Göering who's slightly more aerodynamic. Here's our favorite — whistle along, kids: "Hitler has only got one ball / Göering has two, but very small / Himmler, is somewhat sim'lar / But poor Goebbels, has no balls, at all." So now you'll know the words when you head to Stargazers Theatre and Event Center (10 S. Parkside Drive, stargazerstheatre.com) at 6:30 tonight for a $5 screening, as a part of the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum's World War II exhibit. Proceeds benefit the museum, and a requested non-perishable benefits Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado. — Bryce Crawford
