Empty Barrel War Correspondent Makes The Most Noise
25 July 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"No Hallelujahs For Glory" is a story about what happens when a captain loses control over a pushy, arrogant, and controlling war correspondent Eleanora Hunt (well played by Elizabeth Allen.) Eleanora does everything wrong and is so completely awkward she has to be baby sat by Saunders to avoid her getting herself and others hurt or killed. She's nosy and always looking for action but does not have even the remotest knowledge of how war works. And in the process she probably winds up with permanent emotional scars she'll have to live with the rest of her life.

Eleanora gets involved with 2 French underground resistance fighters who take her to the village of Trois Anges no doubt at her suggestion. Hanley and the squad go looking for her with 2 jeeps armed with machine guns. In the process, the population of Trois Anges believe their village has been liberated. Hanley has Cage explain this is not the case and everything winds down.

Shortly after the Americans leave the village, the story unfolds when the Germans invade Trois Anges with 20-30 men. After being tipped off by the French resistance fighter Jacques, Hanley attempts to rescue the village.

Screen Writers Luther Davis & Mort Lewis did a fine job in that the story is very believable. In typical Saunders fashion, sarcasm is excellent throughout. Director Paul Stanley did an excellent job, especially the ending sequence with the single bell chiming to create the mood.

I would have held Eleanora Hunt much more responsible for the happenings in this episode - war correspondent or not. And I would have demoted Captain Smith for losing control. Hanley should have his job.
