"Gadjo" is a story about transition in a partisan Gypsy tribe from total independence to Allied partnership.

When Gypsies ambush a German detachment, opportunistic White Rook captures two Germans. Refusing to turn over a highly wanted German officer to the tribe, Barbu (excellently played by Ricardo Mantalban) turns his partisan fighters against the squad.

Phillip Hoffman wrote a fine screenplay; combat scenes are prolific while telling the violent story.

Michael Caffey did a fine job directing, especially the memorable ending sequence in which the timing is immaculate. The viewing audience can appreciate those playing the Germans, their faces tell the story of brutal firefight.

Ricardo Mantalban plays a strong role as tribe leader Barbu. Conflict between the Sarge and Barbu is excellent and magnifies Saunders' great leadership skills. Notice how the Sarge rarely loses his composure but still remains firm at all times. There's great aside between Saunders & Barbu priming the latter for the ending sequence.

"Gadjo" makes the viewing audience really feel for anyone caught in the middle of a brutal firefight - a very moving episode.
