The Episode That Got Altman Fired, 3 January 2009

Altman was an excellent television director, and this episode shows why he soon went on to feature films. By an equal measure it shows what a fine actor Vic Morrow was, and why Morrow is favored in the Altman-directed episodes. Those who are interested in seeing what fine dramatic television can be should check this out, even by today's expanded standards of what is allowed on television it's memorable and very well directed and acted. What a shame only three people have actually commented on it. If nothing else, watch it to get at least a vague inkling of what war does to people, and of the kind of bravery it takes to survive one. I'd also recommend any of the other episodes of Combat directed by Altman as well, particularly "I Swear by Apollo" and "The Prisoner."
