Performers, Cast and Crew:
A gripping WWII thriller in which Nazis capture an American spy and try to trick him into thinking that the war has ended.
Major Jefferson Pike has been sent on an intelligence assignment to Portugal. But once there, he is trapped and drugged by Germans, who take him to a remote hospital in the Black Forest.
There, psychiatrist Walter Gerber attempts to fool Pike into thinking that he's been suffering from amnesia for the past six years, and that the fighting has ceased. With this plot, the Germans hope to get the Major to reveal where and when the Allies will be mounting their D-Day campaign.
To pull off this deception, the Nazis convince Pike that the hospital is actually run by Americans -- a hoax that's easily accomplished because the entire staff speaks English.
Will Pike realize what's going on, or will he be duped into giving the Nazis the information they need'
