Very Innovative
3 April 2004 | by (Kansas City, MO.) – See all my reviews

As a fan of 20th century history, I thought "Call to Glory" was a very interesting and exciting series. Craig T. Nelson delivers a sleek performance as a family man named Raynor Sarnac who is reluctant at first to fight in the Vietnam War, but in light of all the dangers surrounding the United States (i.e. President Kennedy's asassination) he feels like he's the one to not let down the American spirit.

I was impressed with all the clean-cut dog fight sequences in which Sarnac pilots a fast-shooting jet. I also am surprised to see a cuter Elizabeth Shue in one of her first acting roles. I guess this was prior to her success in "Adventures in Babysitting" -- another 80's gem :)

I have the original copy of the first 4 shows that were taped from ABC in the fall of 1984. If there are any videos of this series available, I highly recommend them.

8/10 stars
