This is the 6th episode of the 39 episode run of the 1954 to 1956 series, ADVENTURES OF THE FALCON. Film noir icon Charles McGraw headlines as Mike Waring, an agent of the U.S. Government. The series follows McGraw as he travels the world putting the kibosh on various criminals and foreign agents. The series is loosely based on the FALCON series of films of the 1940's.
The U.S. Government sends agent Mike Waring (Charles McGraw) to help out the West Germans. They had a spot of trouble in West Berlin with some stolen documents. The daughter, Violet Rensing of a powerful West German political type has caused a mess-up. Miss Rensing had been stepping out with a man who has lifted important papers and hot footed it to East Berlin. The man, Robert Boone intends to give the papers to the Reds.
McGraw draws the assignment of retrieving said papers. McGraw figures that the Reds will be looking for just a move and declines the mission. A bullet in the head is not his idea of a trip to Berlin. He is soon forced to change his mind when Miss Rensing decides to get the papers herself.
McGraw uses a German agent, Stanley Andrews, to smuggle him into East Berlin. It takes a less than pleasing journey through the sewers to get there. After a run in with some Soviet types he makes contact with the East German underground. They fill McGraw and Andrews in on where Miss Rensing and the traitor Boone are located.
The usual assortment of fistfights and blazing guns is needed to get the mission completed. Andrews turns out to be rather handy in the disposing of the Soviet Secret Policemen. Miss Rensing and the papers are returned to the proper team.
This one is a pretty good episode with a fast moving story and plenty of violence.
