Goofs

The Catholic school classroom in Liddy's childhood scenes had the Pledge of Alligiance said with the students' right hands held out palms up instead of on their chests and no mention of "under God", very strange for a religious school. [Note: The phrase "under God" was not incorporated into the pledge until 1954, well after Liddy's childhood. Also, the pledge was offered with an outstretched arm until World War II, when the gesture was deemed too similar too the Nazi salute]. See more »

Epic flick of the summertime soldier
30 August 2004 | by sartrejpSee all my reviews

Robert Conrad was one of the standard bearers (along with Tom Selleck) of Hollywood's supposed right wing (until he got nailed for drunk driving here a coupla years back): Ba Ba Black Sheep & this Liddy movie. Not sure why, but I guess the summertime soldiers needed an epic flick: Cal Thomas directs The Ten Commandments.

The title Will: what Liddy had to withstand thousand shocks that he was heir to. Miltown County prosecutor, the FBI, committee to re-elect the President. He sure did have it tough: just shout "God, flag, country" & boom! you're in law enforcement.

So then, were we supposed to feel sorry that Liddy made enemies every time he broke the law? Suddenly, he could empathize with the poor & downtrodden?

Saw this movie on Lifetime about 7 or 8 years ago. By then, he'd taken the Liddy persona into commercials: "Knock it off my should; I dare ya."

Some woosies make careers outta being tough guys: Liddy & Conrad were two. If the shoe fits, shove your whole head in.
