The Best of the "Profiles in Courage" series
8 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The call to vote still rings in my memory: "Senator Edmund Ross, how say you? Is Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, guilty or not guilty?" "Not guilty!" Thirty years later we had a chance to see this very type of scenario reenacted in the Impeachment trial of President Clinton. The narrative ended with an eruption of outrage from the Senate gallery, and then there was a shot of all the brave senators who wisely voted to acquit Andrew Johnson shown at their desks in spotlights. This was indeed a profile in courage. In the case of President Clinton he too should be remembered for strengthening the American presidency by refusing to resign and holding out until he too was rightly acquitted as Andrew Johnson was. It was more of a nail-biter for Andrew Johnson, since he was acquitted by only one vote! Bradford Dillman did an excellent job as Ross. The episode begins with the firing of Secretary of War Stanton and demonstrates a Congress gone berserk. This is a documented case of tyranny on the part of an elected legislature.

We need these precious episodes of American TV released for the first time in DVD.
