Storyline

Lt. Hanley acquires intelligence which could save hundreds of lives, but his plane is shot down speeding back to HQ. The bridge Hanley re-conned is much more heavily defended than U.S. Army Intelligence suspected. The old single engine monoplane will be tough to repair, especially with Brannigan the pilot, a daredevil stunt flyer, having a busted leg. But the odds of Hanley slicing through 20 miles of Boche occupied countryside alone on foot are bad too. Written by David Stevens

Keenan Wynn Is Truly A Star
22 October 2011 | by (Mechanicsburg, PA) – See all my reviews

While this episode may not be filled with a lot of shooting, Rick Jason and Kennan Wynn easily make a great show by playing off each other with great dialogue, timing, and character development. Of course the writer, Edward J. Lakso, should also be given his due for a good story and the fine dialogue he gave Jason and Wynn to perform so capably. The old worn out L4 observation plane also becomes an integral character in the show thanks to the way Jason and Wynn speak of it with almost human qualities. In his supporting role as the Frenchman Claude, Peter Brocco performs admirably. Brocco is no stranger to the Combat! series. In a 1964 episode he played another rural Frenchman in "The Long Walk."
