The Andersonville Trial

One of the great TV performances. George C. Scott directs it as much like a filmed play as feasible without actually creating live TV. I think ... maybe it was all done in single takes ...) The cast is an embarrassment of riches; that Ian Wolfe and Alan Hale jr. are around in non-speaking roles is proof of that. Richard Basehart (aka Admiral Nelson from the series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea) and William Shatner ('nuf said) go at it like a Sperm Whale and a Giant Squid.
