Take the High Ground!

On October 19th at 11:15 AM EST, I watched and enjoyed the Korean war movie "Take the High Ground!" on TCM. The stars in this movie were the very-well-known Richard Widmark, Russ Tamblyn, and Karl Malden, whom I immediately identified, whether or not hidden by their uniforms.

 

When I looked up a movie in the same time slot in this schedule, the director is the same but the cast shows Maurice Jara, Robert Arthur, and William Hairston, in this order. No mention of Richard Widmark or Russ Tamblyn or Karl Malden. Does anyone here know of even one of these people, much less two, much less all three?

 

Could it just be possible that someone, somewhere here at TCM, has an *AGENDA*? Could they perhaps all be from the same country, or somehow related to one who holds stock in TCM and/or some high management position?

 

Perish the thought.

> {quote:title=helenbaby wrote:}{quote}Robert Arthur has a pretty big part in the film as the recruit Widmark steals the girl from. And Julien Castro, mayor of San Antonio, is a third generation American whose grandmother immigrated from Mexico. Don't know where you got the idea he is Korean.

 

 

Funny. Seems as the "New York Times" "**** fact-checking thing"

could be of some use here on the message board... And not you, Helenbaby...

As for "Take the High Ground!", I actually watched this on TCM...

Nice to see Widmark and Malden... Arguably not one of director Richard Brooks' better films but did manage to get an Oscar nomination for best screenplay:
