"This two-part story is about Peter Hurkos, a man trying to escape from the Nazis, who falls from a five-story building and is severely injured. After awakening from a coma, Hurkos discovers that he now has some amazing psychic abilities. Struggling to deal with his newfound abilities, Hurkos falls into drinking heavily while trying a career in show business," according to the DVD sleeve's synopsis.

That's a fairly accurate description of "The Peter Hurkos Story (Part 1)". Albert Salmi (as Hurkos) tries his best - but this "true story" of a man's uncanny psychic powers, resulting from his Nazi-era experience, never rings true. It might have been more convincing if Mr. Hurkos recalled some predispositions toward the psychic, before the fall. Betty Garde, as modern day witch "Tante Elsa", is the half-hour's highlight. And, you might enjoy John Banner, pre-"Sgt. Schultz".
