Suspense & Intrigue in a Combat Episode

Author: Jim Marchese from Mesa, AZ USA
16 October 2014

"Evasion" is a story about Lieutenant Hanley's escape and efforts to make it back to Allied lines with valuable intelligence information. Captured by the Germans and amongst a group of higher ranking officers, they make a decision to spring Hanley from confinement because he has memorized the location of an excellent bombing target which could cripple German war efforts. During his journey, he runs into almost every bad bend in the road.

Esther & Bob Mitchell wrote a fine screenplay in that we get a glimpse of what it's like to move about in German occupied territories in World War II Europe. We also meet a couple of conscientious kids from the German youth program and experience the brainwashing potential of a mad dictator. Intrigue and suspense levels are high during the journey and the story flows quite well.

Lloyd Bochner is excellent as Major Thorne, a happy go lucky free spirit who accompanies Hanley on the 2nd part of his escape. Monique Le Maire is equally excellent as the beautiful Julie, portraying an ambivalent mistress who finally realizes the evil character she's been catering to.

Julie pulls off a memorable ending and gives it a very feminine touch similar to what we see in a Mission Impossible episode. She reminds one of Impossible Mission Force character Cinnamon Carter.

"Evasion" was fun to watch; suspense and intrigue made up for the lack of combat scenes.
