The Enemy


3 bayonets

Robert Duvall and Anna Lee

Teleplay by Edward J. Lakso
Story by Steve Fisher
Directed by John Peyser
First aired 05-Jan-1965, Episode 16 of Season 3
Episode #080 in syndication order


Hanley captures a clever demolitions expert in a French spa town after the officer has booby-trapped the entire village. When Hanley is advised by a nun that the elderly citizens of the town will soon return, Hanley enlists Karl's aid to remove each of the traps. The German welcomes the opportunity as a chance to escape. He turns the table on Hanley, catching him in one of his traps.


Robert Duvall is convincing as a confident super-man playing a dangerous game with explosives. A strong script keeps Duvall and Jason on each other's nerves throughout the episode. Great tension throughout: you know Duvall will try something at every turn, and, along with Hanley, you try to figure out ahead of time what it will be.


  • Hanley wears two rings in this episode.
  • Another instance of non-bullet proof tires.


Robert Duvall is a quiet man and an actor who takes acting very seriously. He kept to himself during his three guest stints on Combat! He spent his off-camera time running lines behind the sets.
