A young Peter Brown gets to show off his acting prowess as a downed WWII pilot who escapes from a POW camp in France bearing vital information that he is to deliver to the French resistance. As he travels in disguise as a French laborer, he encounters a helpful man (Savalas) who clearly sees he is American and a pretty woman apparently traveling alone. Both, it turns out, may not be his best choice for new friends. Other than too much WWII stock footage, this is a solid episode in which the pilot, who lacks self-confidence, must make it to the resistance or perish trying. Brown rarely got a chance to really act, but in the two episodes he did for the Kraft show, he proves he was more than just a pretty face.
