Episode Notes
Script consultant William Read Woodfield was an intensely moral man, and refused to work on this episode due to the fact that it featured an IMF agent portraying Hitler. Landau, a Jew himself, said of his betrayal, "My Hitler wasn't a bad guy, he was just overzealous to the point where you say, 'Wait a minute!'"



Episode Quotes
Rollin: Which brings us to Von Frank.
James: I just got a report on him. A team of psychiatrists went over his medical history from beginning to end. And they all agree. They call him a "marginal manic depressive" and a "deeply psychotic paranoid."
Cinnamon: Is that good or bad? For us, I mean.
