Trivia

There's a scene where Captain Holmes (Roy Thinnes) mentions to Sergeant Warden (William Devane) about "company punishment" for Private Prewitt (Steve Railsback). This is a non-judicial-type of punishment meted out for minor infractions, and usually consisted of extra duty, et cetera. It was given for punishment (by the company Commander, and/or company First Sergeant) instead of a court-martial, so nothing would show up in the soldier's service record. The only "official" punishment, under the Articles of War, was court-martial. See more »

Natalie Wood's Golden Globe Winning Performance
2 May 2005 | by cosmiclySee all my reviews

Natalie Wood's Golden Globe Winning Performance makes this mini series worth watching. Natalie brings heart and sensuality to a complex character torn between desire and propriety, frustrated in a loveless marriage but unable to abandon the trappings of status.

What makes Natalie's performance most memorable is her subtlety. In an era where "over the top" acting seems to get the most recognition, Natalie keeps her tumultuous feelings simmering below the surface, like a volcano threatening to erupt, but controlled enough to simply "glow red." You can see the intense heat in her charcoal eyes. Natalie's ambivalence makes her moments with William Devane all the more powerful.

Try to see the uncut six episode version--you will miss a lot if you only see the 110 minute version.
