Did You Know?


White phosphorus was used during World War ll by all sides. So dealing with the wounded from such weapons would not be new to the American medical corps. And Col. Potter who served in World War ll would not have been unfamiliar with these weapons. See more »

A tour De force from Sherman T
3 May 2012 | by (Yorkshire UK) – See all my reviews

Just finishing watching this simple but compelling episode.

Colonel Potter fears he's loosing his surgical touch after leaving some shrapnel in patient, and calls in (my personal favourite character) Sydney Freedman to " look at the cobwebs in the colonels attic"

The 3 swamp rats take a back seat and provide a little light relief doing a 3 stooges homage, while Harry Morgan steals the show in every respect, his fear of growing older, loosing his surgeons skills, being human are touching beyond compare.

I've no idea if Mr Morgan ever received recognition for his portrayal, if not it's a crime.
