Quotes

[first lines]
Person on Tape: [voice on tape] Good afternoon, Mr. Phelps. You're looking at Colonel Hans Krim, the leader of a mercenary army currently ravaging Equatorial Africa. Ostensibly, Krim fights for the cause of emerging nations, but in reality, he is nothing but a military gangster who plunders ally and enemy alike.

One of the better episodes.
21 June 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Colonel Krim (Pernell Roberts) is not only a mercenary, but he's corrupt and evil...even compared to most mercenaries! So, the plan is to discredit him so that his own soldiers kill this butt-head. To do it, they have Barney create a machine to burrow into the mercenary treasury and melt their gold. They then take the liquefied gold out of the vault and make it into new gold bars. Why would they go to all this trouble? To create a treasure for Krim to steal and hide from his men. However, he doesn't realize he's stealing his army's funds--and when they find out about them, they sure WON'T be pleased and they'll think he knew what he was doing.

This one features a lot of gadgetry and an intricate plot. Fortunately, it also features few of the loose ends or conundrums that sometimes mar these episodes--well, aside from the impossible to construct gold-melting machine! Well done and worth seeing.
