Between Heaven and Hell Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P74078~Robert Wagner~robertwagner]] stars as insensitive Southern landowner who gets a much-overdue dose of humility and democracy when he's drafted into the army. Unable to curb his arrogance, [[Performer~P74078~Wagner~robertwagner]] runs afoul of a sadistic military officer ([[Performer~P15668~Broderick Crawford~broderickcrawford]]), who makes it his mission in life to break the recalcitrant recruit. After rescuing a fellow soldier ([[Performer~P88623~Buddy Ebsen~buddyebsen]]), [[Performer~P74078~Wagner~robertwagner]] discovers he has the inner strength to change his outlook on life, and to stand up to the vicious [[Performer~P15668~Crawford~broderickcrawford]]. Based on a novel by [[Performer~P310085~Francis I. Gwaltney~francisigwaltney]], [[Feature~V156212~Between Heaven and Hell~betweenheavenandhell]] features uncredited appearances by [[Performer~P27897~Frank Gorshin~frankgorshin]], [[Performer~P15934~Scatman Crothers~scatmancrothers]], and [[Performer~P2~Carl "Alfalfa" Switzer~carlalfalfaswitzer]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
