Nazi hunters in post-war Switzerland....
16 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The plot of this episode of "Kraft Suspense Theatre" was most likely inspired by the very public capture, trial and execution of the Nazi, Adolf Eichmann, in the early 1960s by the Israeli Mossad. This show finds two agents (Steven Hill and Dane Clark) on the tail of a death camp doctor, the infamous Dr. Lipp (Francis Lederer) who did evil experiments in Buchenwald during the war. However, just before they take the creep into custody in Switzerland, the plan falls apart and he escapes. Now it's a matter of time--either Lipp will find a way to escape the country and evade justice or the scum will be returned for trial and, almost certainly, execution.

Along the way, they meet up with a guy who claims to work for the German secret police (Eric Braeden)--but he might just be working with the scum trying to help Lipp. Regardless how he is, they're all certainly looking for Lipp...and his daughter might be the key.

In addition to the cast listed above, John Banner ("Hogan's Heroes") and Albert Paulsen (a baddie in tons of shows, including "Mission: Impossible"). They along with the less famous Gila Golan. Miss Golan plays Lipp's daughter which is a bit ironic, since she's a Polish lady (most likely born Jewish--though no one is positive since she was an orphan) and now lives in Israel. It's equally ironic that that Banner also played the bumbling German soldier, Sgt. Schultz, as in real life, he had fled his native Austria just before WWII began because he was Jewish and naturally feared for his life. Here in this show, he plays a real Hitler-lover!!

So is all this intrigue worth seeing? Well, the acting certainly is nice--which isn't surprising given the cast. There also is a lot of action and twists as well as an enjoyable script. Well worth seeing.
