Trivia

Paul Busch appears in his 33rd episode. As in all others, he plays a German. However, in this episode, and a couple others, he has two roles. As a radio operator in the prologue, and as an officer during the main story. As the officer, Busch has more lines than in any of his other appearances, and many of them are in English. Alas, he has one final death scene in this episode. See more »

Farewell Episode to a Great TV Series
29 December 2014 | by jmarcheseSee all my reviews

"The Partisan" is a dichotomous tale portraying American nerve & bravery and the inner strength of a beautiful woman.

After Caje & Saunders are wounded, Caje is captured by the Germans while The Sarge makes his way to Babette's (excellently played by Claudine Longet) house. She's living with Michel (excellently played by Robert Duvall) who has a past. Claiming to be a French resistance fighter, Michel finally raises eyebrows when Caje comes on the scene.

Ed Waters wrote a fine screenplay which is very realistic and forthright portraying the power of love. Every time Michel fails, the gorgeous Babette nudges him in the right direction. Vic Morrow is vintage Chip Saunders showing the usual nerve, persistence, & bravery we've all come to know. Saunders' dialog with Michel is outstanding at times; 2 great actors having at it!

Michael Caffey directed this excellent episode in which the viewing audience is treated to authentic German 88 millimeter canon fire. Excellent close-up shots throughout bring out the emotional side of the story.

And favorite German Paul Busch is featured as the ranking German officer. Ironically, he's also the German radio man in the beginning of the episode. Although his head is turned from view, the voice is unmistakable.
