Storyline

The dying leader of a European nation has a protégé ready to assume power. What the leader doesn't know is his protégé has plans to crack down on liberty and execute his enemies. Briggs, in addition to his normal IMF operatives, enlists the help of a physician and an Academy Award-winning art director, as part of his plan. Eventually, the IMF runs an elaborate con, including a phony train ride, aimed at causing the protégé to show his true intentions. Written by Bill Koenig

Last Train to Berna!!!
17 May 2017 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Another Series that l rarely saw in the past that was very famous at the time,but although the success no one took so seriously or gave a proper respect after saw so hard missions got so easiness ends....like in this episode...they go inside the country taking a Prime Minister to make a hard surgeon at Berna without leaving the country on a fake train, it's sound so absurd and unbelievable either ...come on it's not science fiction it's a hard mission to believe that's possible,instead l find it funny...in fact Martin Landau & Co are comics!!!
