Storyline

When a first-classman's insignia is found on the riverbank near the drowned body of plebe David Hand, the specter of murder casts a shadow of scandal across the U.S. Grant Military Academy. General Hedges, the headmaster of the school, is determined to keep the beleaguered school out of the headlines and attempts to cover-up the likelihood of murder by wielding his considerable influence to pass it off as a simple drowning. This is done in spite of forensic reports that show that, shortly before his death, David Hand participated in "consensual sexual relations" with another man. Letters from the dead boy, which the Army Intelligence Department "confiscates" from his sister's New York apartment, implicate Ry Slaight as the first-classman with whom David was in love. As General Hedges says, "You cannot have a murder without a murderer." He offers Slaight the opportunity to "go quietly" which means he would be washed out into the infantry and quickly bound for Vietnam. Professing his ...

What ever happened to David BARUM & SUSAN HESS?
3 February 2007 | by HereInVASee all my reviews

I just saw "Dress Grey" for the first time since it was shown on TV in 1986. It got top ratings and reviews then.

On IMDb, and also searching the Web, I haven't been able to find anything about any other professional work by David Harum (who played Cadet Barham, head of the Honor Council) and Susan Hess (who played Elizabeth Hand).

According to IMDb, "Dress Grey" was Barum's only professional acting job, and Hess just disappeared after 1990.

That is disappointing, since they gave such striking performances.

"Blood and Orchids," is another favorite mini-series that I loved and it was shown on TV in 1986 also. I have two other favorite: "Evita Peron (1981)," with Faye Dunaway, and "The Thornbirds." In general, I hate mini-series and don't watch them ever.

Anyone out there with any info? Thanks!
