First class teleplay
24 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Typical story of a father/son conflict. Son takes a job working with his father who wants him to do better. William Bendix plays a sandhog who digs tunnels under rivers and has arguments with his son over the working conditions and dangers of the profession. I remember seeing this when I was in the eight grade and it scared the hell out of me when I saw it.

Current episodes on the Discovery Channel about sandhogs reminded me of the teleplay.

I don't know who won an Emmy in 1955, but William Bendix at least should have been nominated.
