Doctor Petrie (Clark Howat) tries to track down his good friend, plastic surgeon Doc Henderson (Alan Dexter) ... and wouldn't you know it, he finds him in the hands of Fu Manchu (Glen Gordon), where he is forced to give none other than Hitler (Steven Geray), who has obviously survived his death at the end of World War II, a new face. Thing is, with the arrival of Doc Petrie, Fu Manchu figures he doesn't need Henderson no more, so he has him killed by a tarantula and forces Petrie to further treat Hitler.

Thing is, Petrie's secretary (Carla Balenda)  knows where Petrie has gone, and now Fu Manchu and company including Hitler and Petrie have to break camp and retreat to Hitler's hideout on an uncharted island ...

Now you might ask what Fu Manchu wants Hitler for: First of all, it's out of respect from one evil genius to another, but secondly, Hitler and his scientists have developed a thingy that can remote control atom bombs, ane with that they want to - well bascially remote control atom bombs to create havoc.

Meanwhile, Nayland Smith (Lester Matthews) and company arrive at Fu Manchu's former hideout and find it abandoned safe for Doc Henderson surgery kit and a copy of Hitler's Mein Kampf - and Smith is quick to conclude that someone was giving Hitler a new face (though it escapes me why because Hitler always planned to control his operations from his uncharted island anyways).

Soon enough, the secret service has tracked down the uncharted island and now sends a battalion there, led by Nayland Smith. The battalion manages to free Petrie and engage Hitler in a gunfight, at the end of which he is blown to Kingdom Come. Fu Manchu though has once again managed to escape ...

 

Oh well.

A story like this should have been done on a grand scale, with lots of action and location shots (think something along the lines of James Bond here) ... but of course, budgets for television shows in the 1950's would not allow any extravaganzas, so this one is pretty low key and as a result not all that convincing. Still, some of the ideas in this one are slightly amusing (if for all the wrong reasons) to not make the episode a complete waste of time.
