Storyline

Park any subtlety at the threshold. The spits and spats keep the anchor shining in this Naval officer adventure. Who knows what is next? The children are precious. The interplay between home, the office, and the boat keep you edgy. Sadness sets in as you see the decline of loyalty to purpose. Written by amethystxjane

Why is this not on video cassette? I want a copy!
2 June 1999 | by SabrevetSee all my reviews

A testimonial to the power of money. The weak-willed Walker not only deliberately sold himself out, he involved his family in his treachery. US Navy CWO Walker, not content with his standard of living, and possessing a crypto-secret clearance, reaches for big bucks by selling his integrity to the Soviets, who didn't approach him in the first place; he went to them, peddling his wares! Hard to blame them for taking him up on it.

When his own accessible data is insufficient, he enlists family and colleagues in order to gain more and more information to peddle for more and more dollars. Although he does not physically resemble the real Walker at all, Powers Boothe gave life to the role, playing the traitorous and greedy @#$%! to the hilt. Lesley Ann Warren performs an excellent portrayal of the wife who could not abide her husband's perfidy and involvement of their son. An under-stated actress, Warren called up a lot of emotion in this role. Even if you don't like true-crime drama, it's worth watching for her performance alone.

What really gets me is, why did Walker and his merry band escape the death penalty? Julius & Ethel Rosenberg did the same thing (for NO money, only their beliefs) and they went to the electric chair. (Our liberal, permissive society will eventually sell this country down the river if permitted to perpetuate.)Ah well, a tale that should immediately be set to video cassette; it should be viewed by everyone. RELEASE IT TO VIDEO!!!
