The Jason & Philips Show
21 August 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"A Walk With An Eagle" is a story highlighting the ignorance & arrogance of USAF Major Robert Caldwell (excellently played by Lee Philips) who is completely out of his league on the ground in German territory.

Lieutenant Hanley receives an order to find & rescue Caldwell, a very valuable USAF ace who' s been shot down in the area. Upon rescue Caldwell proves to be a very headstrong individual bent on doing everything his own way even though he knows nothing about ground combat & strategy.

John Peyser directed this fine episode portraying why US Army officers should never be outranked by Navy or Air Force personnel on the ground while in enemy territory. The story is very believable and flows logically. Excellent & abundant conflict is generated between Hanley, the squad, and Caldwell, a testament to fine screen writing by Rod Peterson. In addition, Hanley & Caldwell have an outstanding aside while in deep trouble in which both detail out their job philosophies, infantry versus air.

The ending sequence is hysterically amusing yet very believable considering the dust element and necessity being the mother of creativity.

"A Walk With An Eagle" is loaded with conflict & suspense, fun to watch, and ends with reconciliation and great teamwork between Hanley and Caldwell.
