Nita Talbot is again cast as the lovable Russian spy
17 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode we have the white Russian, Marya (Nita Talbot) making a return visit but this time on the arm of a hard-nose German General. A rocket fuel plant has be constructed near the Stalag and the General has information that Hogan is the informant for the allies operations in the area. Where the General got that information may have been from the Russian agent, Marya. She knows all about the Hogan operation.

With others not so sure that Marya is giving the German's information, Hogan sets up a plan as he gives her details about how they are going to take care of the plant. But the next day the General is alerted about the plan, so Hogan knows that he cannot trust the Russian.

But it will come down to where Hogan will have to provide one more piece of information to the Russian or it could be curtains for the entire Stalag underground. But will the Russian give that information to the General.

An interesting story that provided a new type of script to the series. Ms Talbot is always wonderful when she plays a spy type character on any series and she seems to be near perfect in this comedy setting. Nice watch.
