Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mercenary leader Colonel Han Krim (Pernell Roberts) promises to bring freedom to emerging African nations, all the while robbing the economic resources of those nations to fatten his own coffers. In order to discredit Krim and return his ill-gotten gains to their rightful owners, the IMF stages a spectacular gold heist. Only one possible crimp in the plan: There are only five IMF agents, while Krim boasts over three hundred followers. First telcast October 27, 1968, "The Mercenaries" was written by Laurence Heath.
