Trivia

When Craig T. Nelson was filming Call to Glory, he received rides in several Air Force fighter planes for familiarization purposes, and to help him get more into character during flying sequences. On one particular flight in an F-16B Fighting Falcon, the aircraft suffered electrical failure shortly after takeoff. Nelson and his pilot nearly had to eject from the aircraft, but fortunately, the pilot was able to safely land the jet. See more »

Goofs

Civilian vehicles needed decals on the windshield to gain access to the base. The decals were very prominent. No decals are seen on the cars in this movie. See more »

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
