Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The IMF is faced with an assignment that virtually requires them to be in two places at once. First, they must prevent the murder of Professor Napolsky (Edward Colmans), who has defected to the West. Simulatenously, they must discredit the more dangerous of the two enemy spy groups who are determined to kill the professor. Hans Gudegast, who later billed himself as Eric Braeden, appears as one of the chief assassins. First telecast December 17, 1966, "The Short Tail Spy" was written by Julian Barry.
