Still crazy after all these years
7 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

James Whitmore plays a retired Army major who has nightmares about his time in the Korean War and now plans to establish a militia to guard against America's enemies, which include anyone of ethnic descent. Tommy Sands plays a high schooler who leads a group of raucous high school youths (in reality, all of them well past college age) who run afoul of the shell-shocked major. It eventually comes down to a confrontation between the major and the brash high schooler, and the major is now brandishing a gun. Whitmore is riveting as a deranged man, and Sands is convincing enough as a wise mouthed kid who may end up paying the ultimate price for his misbehavior. The episode was slightly ahead of its time, in that people like the nutty major and his militia would come to be a few years later.
