Soldiers & Partisan Regain Humanity
17 December 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"Entombed" is a story of survival after a mine cave in.

When the Germans chase King 2 and French partisan fighters into an abandoned mine, the entrance caves in from firefight & hand grenade explosion trapping the entire entourage of Americans, Germans, & French.

Paul Playdon & Bob Frederick wrote an adequate screenplay in which character development and conflict are clearly evident between all parties. Michael Constantine portrays some fine acting as Jacque, a French partisan fighter who hates Germans. Given his acting background, I'm surprised he was not a billed guest star. Rick Jason is his usual take charge self with support from German Lieutenant Mauer (well played by Skip Homeier.)

Director Bernard McEveety shot a great opening sequence characterized by immediate heavy combat action. The ending sequence was highly unlikely but the logical way to tie in all of the loose ends.

"Entombed" had it's moments the best of which is Jacque finally seeing the light with respect to Marianne, a French girl, and her lover Johann, a German deserter. Overall, it was not one of the best episodes.
