Why ABC Lost the 'War'

December 03, 1988

"War and Remembrance" should have been subtitled "Bore and Redundance." Robert Mitchum performed like a graduate from "Zombie I," Polly Bergen must have spent hours studying every Zasu Pitts film she could find, and Victoria Tennant seems to have benefited from special classes in looking startled.

Even the much-touted re-creation of the Battle of Midway was recycled, colorized newsreel footage that's been seen in almost every documentary of the Pacific battles made since World War II.
