In Escape's "Pass to Berlin," an American G.I. in occupied Germany is blackmailed by a mind-reading act.
As the episode opens, Sargeant Ed Sawyer and his German girlfriend, Greta, get into a fight. In her drunken stupor, the fight becomes violent, and Sawyer accidentally kills her. He then runs from her boarding house and takes refuge inside a theater.
The headline act of the evening is a pair of mind-readers, The Great Stanley and his lovely assistant Mona. As The Great Stanley works his way through the audience, Mona tells all that she sees. Suddenly, their show comes to an abrupt end when Mona annouces that there is a murderer in the audience!
Sawyer goes backstage to ask The Great Stanley about the unusual ending to their show. He claims it was just a bit of sensationalism, but the next morning, Sawyer finds a reminder of his crime on his door. How do they know what Sawyer did?
"Pass to Berlin" was written by Morton Fine and David Friedkin. William N. Robson produced and directed. Stacy Harris played Sgt. Sawyer. Also appearing were Peggy Webber and Ben Wright. This episode aired on May 19, 1950.
