|ead man's Tale (1961)
When Barney Street, the fixer, was in Holland during World War II,
his life had been saved by a German soldier. Now Barney was dead; his estate was worth
$2,000,000. But in his will Barney left it all to Hacha, the German soldier who had saved
his life. Barney's wife, Estelle, wanted that money. If Hacha was dead, she would get it.
If not...? So she sent Steve Longacre to Europe to find out. Steve, who had once been one
of Barney's boys, took along his kid brother, Andy, and they trailed Hacha from Holland to
Switzerland, to Vienna, finally to Prague.
