HILL NUMBER ONE
Another dismal day during the Korean War becomes very special for Pvt. Huntington (Roddy McDowell) and his fellow soldiers when the padre arrives with a little hot coffee and the story of Easter - victory at Hill Number One. This powerful biblical tale is reenacted in all its glory with James Dean in his first dramatic film role as John the Baptist. Decius is played by Michael Ansara. Leif Erickson is Pilate and Ruth Hussey is Mary Magdalene. Originally broadcast on Easter Sunday in 1951, this enlightening program is as inspirational today as it was almost 50 years ago. Black and white, 57 minutes.
