Trivia

In a rare instance, the episode does not start with Phelps receiving an assignment via a recording. Instead, he stumbles into an assignment while on vacation. See more »

Goofs

When Rollin and Cinnamon have to make a mask of the doctor (played by Will Geer) "on the fly," Cinnamon takes a fairly stiff piece of clear plastic and melts it in the doctor's sterilizing oven to create the mask. Such plastic, if melted and reconstituted, would have hardened into a rigid, mostly clear constituent; it never would have provided the flexible, flesh-like material of the mask depicted, which would have required some kind of latex.

Among the best of season two.
29 July 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Aside from one logical error, this is among the very best episodes of season two of "Mission: Impossible". It's extremely good because it is so very different--and after a lot of familiar episodes, it's nice to see something so unfamiliar.

The episode does NOT begin with Phelps getting his assignment. Instead, he's on vacation and wanders into some small town. What he doesn't know is that this is an EVIL town--and everyone is involved in some sort of conspiracy. When he accidentally learns too much, the town deals with him in a novel manner--they drug him so that he cannot move or speak. Then, when Rollin comes looking for him, they explain that Jim had a stroke and was on death's door. Rollin is allowed to see him, as the town suspects nothing amiss--and using his eyes, Jim is able to communicate with Rollin about his predicament. However, it's the whole town--and Rollin cannot contact the police since they are in on it. So, he gets Cinnamon, Barney and Willy to come to the town to ostensibly tell him goodbye--though, of course, they're coming to rescue him.

As I mentioned there is a minor problem with the plot. In such a situation, you would ASSUME that Rollin would contact federal authorities (such as the FBI) and the town would be invaded. Their way of handling it was much more cool to watch--just not exactly realistic. Still, it's a dandy episode--and one that shows very clever writing and ingenuity. Well worth seeing.
