Storyline

King company is quickly overrunning a French Village, and the German withdrawal is in complete chaos. Most of the German troops are killed, wounded, or captured in the action, but one German officer, Hertzbrun, tries to blow a bridge before he leaves the village. Unable to blow the bridge during the attack, he takes refuge in a Catholic church where he exchanges his uniform for the vestments a priest and becomes "Father Hertzbrun." His intention is to impersonate a priest long enough for him to finish setting his charges, blow the bridge, and make his escape. Much to his dismay, as soon as the fighting is finished, he is asked by a GI to hear his confession. Unfortunately for Hertzbrun, he really has no experience in priestly matters, and his ineptitude leads to the failure of his ruse. A 44 year old James Whitmore is a pleasure to watch as he plays the German officer masquerading as a priest. Written by David Wile
