Memorable Frank Marth On Combat !
11 November 2014 | by (Mesa, AZ USA) – See all my reviews

"Run Sheep Run" showcases fear in new GI Corey (well played by Dwayne Hickman) and how he deals with it during and after his first combat action.

During his first confrontation with Germans, Corey teams up with Booker (played by Walter Maslow) to knock out a German stronghold. Booker gets it done at the cost of his life when Corey freezes. Because of Booker's efforts, Corey takes Lieutenant Vogler (excellently played by Frank Marth) prisoner. In the eyes of White Rook, Corey's near hero status. Soon after, Corey panics when he realizes Vogler speaks English and knows the truth.

Esther & Bob Mitchell wrote an excellent screenplay portraying a young GI's fears and how he deals with them. Character development is outstanding between Corey & Vogler as the lieutenant psyches Corey out in his escape attempts. Frank Marth puts on a real show in dealing with White Rook. Marth's memorable ending sequence shows what superb acting is all about and the viewing audience is treated to great words of wisdom in the process.

Bernard McEveety did an outstanding job directing each of the graphic combat scenes. He continually rotates close-ups of both American & German gun fire in rapid succession to synergize effect on the audience. Note the great close-up of Booker in the opening sequence just before he throws the grenade; absolutely outstanding! And Lieutenant Vogler at the end; this is what great directing is all about.

I thoroughly enjoyed "Run Sheep Run" and hope you will too.
