Near the end when Newkirk tosses the envelope to Hogan past Klink, Hogan tells Klink, "Tinker to Evers to Chance is the play. You're only Evers, I'm Chance." Hogan is referring to the famous double play combination of the 1908 World Series champion Chicago Cubs. In the 100 years since this combination was broken up the Cubs have yet to win the World Series again. See more »

Klink and Hogan team-up in the entertaining story.
19 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this show, an old friend of Klink's, Major Hans Kronman, comes to visit and he tells Klink that he has something that he wants to discuss with him. About that time the door opens up and in comes Gestapo agent Captain Guenther. The Captain arrest Kronman for conspiracy to kill Hitler. Right before the Gestapo drags him out of the officer, Kronman hands Hogan a safety deposit box key. That will be the last time anyone sees Major Kronman alive. Now the Gestapo wants to interview Klink. Since his old friend has been arrested, they believe Klink may have also had his hand in the plot.

Hogan and Klink now team-up since the information in the safety deposit box could contain valuable information or even other names of people that Kronman was to discuss the plan. And with the box being in the hotel safe, that is too complex for Newkirk, Hogan is going to have to place a call to London for one of the best safe-crackers around, Alfred Burke also known as Alfie the Artist . But when they find him they first must get permission from the Warden since he is in prison.

An entertaining show that was interesting from beginning to end. Walter Burke does a nice job of playing the shifty Alfie the Artist as his demeanor adds to the show to make the character come alive. This is a more serious show than is accustom for the series but still one that was enjoyable to watch.
