Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Iron Curtain functionary Kozani (Carl Betz, in an offbeat characterization) has captured guerilla leader Constantine (Eric Mason) and sentenced him to death within 24 hours. Within this extremely limited time-frame, the IMF must rescue Constantine and smuggle him back to his followers. The key to the success of this plan is manifested in the title of this Mission: Impossible episode. First seen on March 8, 1970, "The Crane" was written by Ken Pettus.
