They didn't think that through (TV and movie edition)

Similar to the thread in the comics section, but for TV and movies.

I learned today of the German release of the 1940s Captain America serial on DVD when someone posted its front and back covers online. The back cover was particularly interesting:

Note the string of black and white images under the main text. Most of these are publicity stills from the serial - I've seen them all before. But the one on the far left is different. I guess they felt they didn't have enough shots of Cap in costume, so they decided to photoshop a new one. Cap himself looks like he is actually Chris Evans from Captain America: The First Avenger in his USO costume:

But who is he hanging out with? Given Cap's relaxed, conversational pose, it must be a good buddy of his I guess.

Well, wonder no more, because here's the image Cap has been photoshopped into:

It's the SS commander Heinrich Himmler, on a tour of a SS prison camp...

Talk about the worst possible choice of photo to add Cap to.
