Episode Summary

Ex-Sgt. Randell File, U.S.A.
Twenty-four year old John Rubinstein guest stars as a troubled Vietnam war veteran, a former army sergeant, in a group therapy session led by Dr. Whitman. Flashbacks give hints as to the causes of Randell File's emotional problems. The episode was directed by Jeff Corey. Corey was a black listed actor who became an acting teacher. Among Corey's acting students during the 1950's were James Dean, Anthony Perkins, and Jack Nicholson. Corey was also a decorated combat photographer during WW ll. Corey had played a psychiatrist in "Home of the Brave", perhaps his best performance. This was the first television show Jeff Corey directed, and he gets excellent performances out of the entire cast. The episode ends in a group hug that includes Dr. Whitman.moreless
