During a heavy firefight and facing overwhelming numbers the Allies are being beaten back. One of the German's shot during the firefight detonates a grenade behind the Sarge who is deafened by the blast. Alone and lost Sgt. Saunders tries to make his way back to American lines. Unable to hear anything, he is almost shot by a German patrol, but manages to get away. He finds a small dog that becomes attached to him and acts as his ears until it is killed by a German that surprises them. Saunders manages to take the German prisoner and tries to use him to guide back to his lines but in a struggle the German is killed and Saunders collapses just before the Americans come across him as they push forwards. The first thing he knows is when he wakes to find a medic checking him and hears the medic say "it's only a superficial face wound and you'll be alright" Written by Stevo15

Excellent Screen Writing in A Combat Episode
10 September 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"Hear No Evil" is a story about going deaf in time of battle and just what it could be like.

The Sarge loses his hearing during a brutal firefight with the Germans. He stumbles on his journey knowing he cannot hear. At first I thought this an improbable episode. But much to Screen Writers Tim & John Considines' credit, this is very realistic. Imagine how you would feel in the presence of the German Army knowing you were alone and unable to hear; pretty scary to say the least. The story flows from one escapade to another creating quite the drama & suspense for the viewing public. Upon viewing the doggie scene, I thought no way; but Writers Considine proved me wrong with delightful & graphic reality. The motorcycle scene is priceless!

Vic Morrow is excellent in his portrayal of the deaf. The opening sequence is vintage Combat and I find it amazing no one was seriously injured during the filming. As usual the stunt people were superb and A.D. Flowers colluded with Director Sutton Roley for an outstanding opening. Sequences like this are what kept the audience coming back for more each week.

Sit back and enjoy this original & unique episode.
