American reporter Mary Prescott (Claire Trevor) has been given a safe conduct pass by the Iron Curtain dictator whom she has interviewed. En route to West Germany, Mary is approached by East German soccer player Jan Gubak (Jacques Bergerac), who tells her a sob story about a sick sister and an expensive operation. The upshot of all this finds Mary agreeing to smuggle a watch across the border on behalf of Gubak -- with surprising consequences. Hogan's Heroes fans will enjoy the brief appearances of the future Colonel Klink Werner Klemperer and Sgt. Schultz (John Banner) in key supporting roles, while comedy aficionados will recognize perennial Laurel & Hardy foil Charlie Hall as a pool player in Alfred Hitchcock's prologue sequence.
