Crisis Of Faith
14 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Set aboard a battleship in the Pacific during World War II, this episode stars George Grizzard as Harris, a pharmacist's mate who has taken to the bottle after learning of his beloved brother's death in battle. Despite his declared loss of faith, he is called upon to save the life of his disapproving commander(played by Whit Bissell) who is critically wounded in an attack, and Harris must operate, and his only help is the radio voice of another doctor located on a nearby ship, which proves to be providential for them both in more ways than one... Good cast and story in effective war-themed tale that would have been at home on "The Twilight Zone".
