A Play of Seeming Indifference
1 December 2004 | by (The Society NY) – See all my reviews

To me Richard Baseheart will always be the Captain of the Seawolf in TV Version of Voyage to the Bottom of The Sea. In the little known Valley Forge Richard Baseheart turns his stentorian English sounding tone to the role of the father of his country, fighting off British starvation and waiting for news of the French decision on alliance. If the foray depicted in this movie was more of a pantry raid than a military masterstroke, the message of the extreme circumstances faced is clear. Indeed morale may not been able to survive victory or defeat without a the comradely in little humorous mischief stemming from a successful, unauthorized foray inconsequential in the long flow of history.

Ohio born Baseheart plays the father of his country with the reserve and a sly sense of irony and humor worthy of Washington even if Baseheart falls considerably short of Washington's reported height of 6 feet.

The Revolution is an underplayed topic in theatre. In fact I came across this film by accident; I had failed to find this film not withstanding years of research into the topic. Comparable films: Scarlet Coat, Revolution, April Morning, The Patriot
