Whitmore all the way
2 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Solid courtroom drama about a WWII soldier of limited mental capacity being tried for the slaying of his sergeant. A slick lawyer defends him, but in order to save him since the soldier refuses to plead guilty and throw himself on the mercy of the court, has to pull out all the stops and play every trick in the book. The courtroom segment is told in flashback, as the episode begins 20 years later with the ex-soldier confronting the lawyer. James Whitmore is the slick lawyer, and he truly carries the episode. He is ably supported by Philip Abbott as the prosecuting attorney and Richard Crenna as the slow-witted soldier. Some grim battle scenes precede the trial, so beware. This is not one for the kiddies.
