The Rookies Protect A General
19 December 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Gen Brooker, an army officer who had many casualties when under his command, causes riots while on a speaking tour, he is assigned to be protected by Ryker's men.

A very good episode with good guest actors. Don Porter plays Brooker, he was reliable supporting player in 1940s films. He became more popular as he got older, most famous as Gidget's dad in the TV show. The same year as this episode he had a great role in "The Candidate" opposite Robert Redford. Terry is critical of the general and makes a remark to him in front of reporters, a memorable scene in this show. Willie becomes attracted to Brooker's daughter Laurie, who he is assigned to protect. She is played by Belinda Montgomery, a good actress who guested on nearly every TV show of the time. She also was in the cult horror TV movie "The Devil's Daughter."
