The ongoing trial of Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann was the obvious inspiration for Rod Serling's "Death's-Head Revisited." Oscar Beregi stars as Capt. Lutze, the sadistic former commandant of the Dachau concentration camp. Travelling incognito, Lutze makes a "sentimental journey" to the camp, fondly recalling the misery he had wreaked in the final months of WWII. But Lutze is in for quite a few horrible surprises when one of his former prisoners, the emaciated Becker (Joseph Schildkraut), shows up to see that justice is finally done. "Death's-Head Revisited" was originally telecast November 10, 1961.
