Vintage Saunders & Kirby
25 July 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"Off Limits" is a story of impulsive love and marriage blended into a WW II context. The squad are happy to see real female nurses at the 325th Evacuation Hospital during a short stop over when they find out Corporal Andy March (played by Jeremy Slate) is married to Lieutenant March (played by Peggy Ann Garner.) The lovebirds must part company in a short time and Sgt.Saunders asks Lt. Hanley for a 48 hour pass for Cpl. March. Kirby agrees to cover for March if he receives the pass.

Meanwhile, Kirby (excellently played by Jack Hogan) is hit by the love bug when he sees a French waitress in town. Private Crown goes AWOL along with Kirby to see her that evening and we have vintage Kirby. He winds up in the 325th Evac Hospital and runs into Lt. March.

When Andy March goes on patrol because of Kirby's situation, he is seriously injured and ends up as well in the 325th Evac Hospital. Pretty soon the whole truth unfolds about Lt. March.

Sceen Writer George F. Slavin and Director Robert Altman teamed up to produce a solid episode considering a huge lack of combat. Character development and dialog are very strong. Vic Morrow plays a strong role and we get some great Sgt. Saunders wisdom about minding one's own business - Priceless! When confronted by Lt. March for advice Saunders' reply is beautiful - great advice and wisdom for everyone!

Jack Hogan puts on a fine performance in one of his best episodes. Hats off to his stunt double for the fine sequence in the bar.
