    Show Info



    Originally aired: 1961-11-10

    Starring:



    Joseph Schildkraut as Alfred Becker

    Chuck Fox as the Dachau victim

    Oscar Beregi as Gunther Lutze





    Directed by: Don Medford (5 episodes, including passage for trumpet and The Mirror)

    Teleplay by: Rod Serling (Yeah, duh)











    You, Me, and IMDB Synopses:



    * You: An unrepentant nazi founds out the hard way that justice delayed is not justice denied

    * Me: A Nazi piece of crap visits the concentration camp he ran but the ghosts there have a few words for him

    IMDB: A former German SS captain returns to Dachau concentration camp and begins reminiscing on the power he enjoyed there, until he finds himself on trial by those who died at his hands.



    Discussion:



    Initial thoughts



    One of Serling’s finest efforts



    Light touch and heavy touch

    Remembering with pleasure

    Truth run away from… he goes back to Dachau









    Stray Observations



    “Functioned as I was told”



    A go-to defense that never works. Taught to military 23:28 ramble on





    The hanging victims on tv seem bold

    The gate closes and locks by itself but he doesn’t freak out

    Such good times – a dude in the window in the shot…

    Memorials in general (OKC building, 9/11, etc)

    Impressive 





    What do you rate the episode?



    Both of us give it an A







    Choose your Own Endventure







    Paul – He’s recognized and tried as a Nazi after going back to town as a mad man

    Brandon – An extension of the ending. Someone from the town actually reports Lutze and though he’s insane, he’s still tried as a Nazi. It’s not enough that he’s in anguish… he’s gotten away by being incognito
