EVASION - Evading Capture for Downed American Airmen

Evasion (1950-B&W-92-minutes)

As the Cold War heated up in the late 1940s, the prospect of being shot down on a photo reconnaissance mission over Eastern Europe (or even in a hot war) became very real. The US Air Force put together this dramatic training film, shot in Hollywood "film noire" espionage adventure style, to teach downed airmen how to make their way home out of hostile territory. All the capture evasion skills learned during World War 2 are put to good use, along with lessons learned by the CIA on how to operate in Eastern Europe.

A B-29 is shot down during a combat mission, far behind enemy lines. The crew is separated during bail out into small groups. What follows are a series of lessons on what to do -- and not to do - to evade capture and make it back to friendly territory. Just a few of the many things you'll learn are: evading blood hounds, what to wear, and not t wear, to blend in with the locals, traveling inconspicuously by day and night, identifying civilians most likely to help you make contact with the underground, what to expect from the resistance and how to deal with them, crossing roads and exposed spaces, using misdirection, diversion & bluffing, crossing heavily guarded boarders -- and a whole lot lot more! Some of the crew make it back, while others don't, all told in a very dramatic and engaging feature film.
