This TV movie was Irwin Allen's first project with Warner Bros. Studios after having moved over from 20th Century-Fox, where he had mastered both mediums of television and films for sixteen years. See more »
Time capsule from the glory days of 1970's television - Fun!
Perfectly acceptable Irwin Allen drama, with some funny special effects - I particularly like it when they put a water tank in front of the lens, trying to simulate a high-water mark for a "dry shot" scene - and some even funnier acting. Culp is most amusing, still acting with more swagger than his career deserves, and Milner seems grouchy. Good location work doesn't always mix well with the stock footage.
