Audience Member An interesting court room drama for the time. Robert Mitchum is underrated as an actor. One of Hollywood's treats. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member insanity defense for murder in a military courtroom Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty average story. Best thing about it is France Nuyen. I wonder if she did any other movies? I couldn't figure out why Robert Mitchum used a cane in this movie. I guess he must have busted up his leg in real life and they just added it in the show. Anyhow, only watch this if you are doing something else at the same time... Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member on now as in past wars decisions proceed into the light only through positively release forth of individual power towards the conclusion of justice. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/coverv/66/267266.jpg[/img][img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/coverv/41/250741.jpg[/img][img]http://i183.photobucket.com/albums/x30/udproud/main-205.jpg[/img] Was a real couch potato this weekend as you can see Putting up 3 more for part 2 and hope to comment soon.
