A Medium With a Message: Inside TV's Long History of Tackling Social Issues
These are all timely topics for television drama in 2017. But they were also tackled, with gritty realism, more than a half century ago on two landmark CBS series: “The Defenders” (1961-65), starring E.G. Marshall and Robert Reed as crusading father
Nominated for seven Academy Awards® in 1954, including Best Picture and Best Actor, THE CAINE MUTINY is a classic film about the unstable Captain Queeg (Humphrey Bogart) and his tumultuous command of an old minesweeper and her weary crew. On the high seas during the dramatic battles of World War II, Queeg's by-the-book approach pushes his crew and his popular second-in-command, Lt. Maryk (Van Johnson), to the breaking point. After a series of questionable orders, Maryk confronts Queeg when he orders the ship directly into the path of a deadly typhoon. Maryk invokes naval code and relieves Queeg of his command, forcing the crew to mutiny. Once safely back in port, Maryk is court-martialed for treason, setting off a tense trial that exposes the true state of Queeg's mind. Nominated for Best Actor, Humphrey Bogart gives a searing performance as he is systematically broken down in this classic tale of military conduct in a time of war. Humphrey Bogart is heartbreaking as the tragic Captain Queeg in this 1954 film, based on a novel by Herman Wouk, about a mutiny aboard a navy ship during World War II. Stripped of his authority by two officers under his command (played by Van Johnson and Robert Francis) during a devastating storm, Queeg becomes a crucial witness at a court martial that reveals as much about the invisible injuries of war as anything. Edward Dmytryk (Murder My Sweet, Raintree County) directs the action scenes with a sure hand and nudges his all-male cast toward some of the most well-defined characters of 1950s cinema. The courtroom scenes alone have become the basis for a stage play (and a television movie in 1988), but it is a more satisfying experience to see the entire story in context. -Tom Keogh
Follow those who stand at the forefront of medicine in The Bold Ones: The New Doctors, the classic drama starring E.G. Marshall, John Saxon, and David Hartman. The series chronicled the inner workings of the prestigious David Craig Institute of New Medicine, where Dr. David Craig (Marshall) and his assistants Dr. Paul Hunter (Hartman) and Dr. Ted Stuart (Saxon) tackled the most challenging of cases. In stories which often reflected the societal concerns of the day as well as exploring the cutting edge of medical techniques, The New Doctors delivered on both an intellectual and emotional level throughout its entire run. Co-created by television legend Stephen Bochco, The New Doctors was the only installment of The Bold Ones' rotating wheel of series to last the franchise's entire run from 1969 to 1973. Top-quality direction by such names as Richard Donner (Superman: The Movie, Lethal Weapon), John Badham (Saturday Night Fever, WarGames) and Jerry Lewis (The Nutty Professor) as well as thoughtful and topical writing elevated the series over many of its contemporaries, and cemented The Bold Ones' reputation as one of the strongest examples of dramatic television of its time. INCLUDES 43 ORIGINAL EPISODES PLUS A CROSSOVER EPISODE WITH IRONSIDE
