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 »

I LOVE this version!
20 April 2009 | by jaemel-1See all my reviews

This has become my favorite mini-series of all time. When it was first aired, I watched it only because of the previews and buzz talk surrounding it. I had never been much of a fan of the original, which was before my time, and that may have a lot to do with me liking this version, I admit. The performances, however, were outstanding. William Devane was excellent in a role I couldn't ever have imagined him in. And of course, there was Natalie Wood, who could NEVER do any wrong as far as I was concerned. I truly believe that she was the most beautiful actress to ever grace the big screen or small. Kim Basinger, in an early role, was absolutely gorgeous and angelic. Joe Pantoliano stepped into a much compared part with a very credible performance. And a young Steve Railsback was perfect for this part, at this time. I have been waiting almost 30 years for this to appear on Home Video, and I hope that it is out soon!
