    Mean and diabolical, Robert, methinks not? Yeah, courts would never allow such imprisonment, today. Personally, I don't see much difference between imprisonments, whether on a ship or between four walls on land. Our nation was not yet twenty years old when Nolan was sentenced, our armies, rag-tag, and not yet forged by international war, fighting on the soil and in the waters of other nations, except for a few skirmishes on the Barbary Coast of northern Africa. You, Robert are the beneficiary of such discipline, whereby our country strengthened its military and fought battles, home and abroad, so people like you could have different opinions about America. What kind of America is it that you would love, for without an America, there would be none to love? You sound like revolutionaries who, unlike our forefathers, fight to destroy what is, without ever giving heed to what will be, like the communist factions in Russia, the Khmer Rouge in southeast Asia and the freedom-fighters in Cuba, Nigeria, Ethiopia and The Congo and so many other places that are, not better, but worse, for tearing things up by the roots so someone with a vision for his own power and glory can take over and plant his own seeds of destruction, such as you might find acceptable, because you are a narrow and close-minded twit, who probably gets up in the morning looking at his neighbor's yard to see what he can find wrong with it, not within code regulation while you take your dog our for a crap and walk away, leaving your crap and his for others to clean up! Time, place and circumstance, that's what movies are for, Robert, to give us a view of what was or may have been, as a way to reflect on what we have now!

  • Still Valid and Insightful

    • 3/4/15

    This short film is still a great lesson to all especially during this era where the individual sense of entitlement far outweighs such tenets as duty, honor, and service. It is unfortunate that some of the comments find this film to be negative and harsh in its message. I doubt if many people know or realize the historical period during which this story was written and its original purpose.

  • Dated and displaying a mean-spirited America

    • Robert
    • 3/2/14

    This is a mean, diabolical version of America. Sentencing a young American to a life-time of torture and imprisonment for a brief burst of anger? Nothing patriotic about this dated film. Sorry, but this is not the kind of America we love.

  • Ditto!!

    I could not say it better than the first reviewer, except to say a hearty, Amen! I graduated from high school very early in the sixties. You know, that other generation! "Love of God, country, and mom! That is what it was about, in that order.

  • Show it again

    In this day and age, it needs to be seen again, and again.

    • 3/5/10

    If this is the same movie shown to us in school (some 50 years ago), I think it should be shown to every American. We could all use a refreshing of our heritage. Thanks for showing it.
