The German Doc

During a reconnaissance patrol, Lt. Hanley and his squad has a confrontation with a German machine gun nest and the survival is the German medic Peter Halsman. He is taken prisoner and walks with the American squad. When there is another shootout, he lives a dilemma between his duty and humanity.

"Cry for Help" is a humanistic and antiwar episode of "Combat!" with a dramatic story of conflict of a man. Robert Duvall is perfect in the role of a German medic that has to decide his mission in the war. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Pedido de Ajuda" ("Cry for Help")
