Goofs

At the beginning of the episode, immediately after the real footage of tanks in action in what the narration says is Normandy, the platoon is shown walking down a road flanked by what are clearly eucalyptus trees. Eucalyptus trees are sensitive to frost, however, and while they thrive in Italy (and southern California, where this was filmed), they would not survive the winters in northern France. See more »

The "Priest with a Problem" didn't work for me
28 June 2006 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen many episodes of Combat! yet, but of the handful I have seen, this is my least favorite. After a prolonged sequence of stock war footage, the episode gets off to a good start. The guys walking down the road and running into a squad of Nazis was quite exciting. But things go downhill from there, especially when Jeff Hunter shows up. I never bought his "Priest with a Problem". It just didn't seem real. And once the guys reach the village, things grind to a halt. Nothing happens. And how convenient was it that Caje, the only French speaker in the bunch, wasn't with them when they needed someone to speak to the French priest?

Overall, I've enjoyed my experiences thus far with Combat. I just hope I don't run into any more episodes like this one.
