Hail, Hero! #

Released 10/4/1969

Description: Hail, Hero! stars Michael Douglas in his screen debut as long-haired college student Carl Dixon. Reversing the usual procedure in late-1960s films, Dixon decides to quit school and enlist in the Army, even though he's already run afoul of the law as a Vietnam protestor. It is our hero's intention to test love, rather than bullets, to combat the Viet Cong. Needless to say, his idealism is no match for the harsher realities of war, but this doesn't stop him from endlessly spouting the sort of agit-prop rhetoric so beloved of filmmakers of the era. In addition to Michael Douglas, co-star Peter Strauss likewise makes his first movie appearance in Hail, Hero! Dated in the extreme, the movie is saved by the musical score by Gordon Lightfoot.

The Russell Girl Reviews:

Outstanding movie dealing with relationships, human tragedy and the rebounding of the human spirit.The movie sports 2 outstanding performances by heroine Amber Tamblyn, a Macy's buyer, who has been agreed to Northwestern University, to pursue a medical profession only to explore that she has an aggressive form of leukemia and Jennifer Ehle, as Lorraine.6 years earlier while babysitting for a one year old daughter, the Tamblyn hero was distracted by the antics of the baby's two older brothers with tragedy ensuing. This tragedy has caused Lorraine to become an embittered, emotionally wrought girl who is doing an perfect job of alienating both her husband and sons.Upon receiving this poor diagnosis, Tamblyn (Sarah) rushes home to her parents and brother who bring her the news of her Northwestern acceptance. Unable to say them the poor news, the film becomes one of interpersonal relationships among the cast including Sarah's former boyfriend, who has returned home to tend to his stroke victim father.This movie is definitely a triumph of the human spirit through perseverance and courage.The movie shows how in adversity folks can come together. I highly suggest it.


If the news is not nice ...Of COURSE the news isn't good. This is a Hallmark Hall of Fame production.Sarah Russell is a buyer for Macy's in Chicago. She wanted to go to medical school, but so far she has not been agreed anywhere. But actually she may not receive the possibility to go to medical school anyway. She has Acute Myelogenous Leukemia, and while it can be treated, she needs to act quickly.Sarah goes home, since she has holiday time coming. Once she has returned to her hometown, she meets former boyfriend Evan, who works at his father's gas station. Evan is now an investment banker in Dallas, but when his father had a stroke, he had to come home temporarily to support out, doing what he should in his another job by means of technology. After a minor accident, Sarah has an excuse to spend time with Evan, who can do the important repairs to her car.When Sarah returns to her parents' house, Lorraine from across the road sees her, goes inside and says her husband "The Russell Girl" is back, in a tone that makes it appear Sarah was part of some scandal years ago. Lorraine, who restores furniture and similar items, later becomes depressed and bitter, and almost incapable of functioning because of migraines. She won't even watch her teenage son testing in an necessary baseball game.Sarah's parents are satisfied to see her, and they have a telephone message she believes they would rather not have heard. No, it's not that. She now has been agreed to Northwestern's medical school. Sarah can't give them the terrible news now. There may be more to her refusal to tell anything, though.The film has necessary messages about forgiveness and dealing with guilt. Amber Tamblyn and Jennifer Ehle both give superior performances. Ehle has the greater challenge because of her wide range of moods, but she also delivers some unexpected moments. Tamblyn also has to present a wide range. Fortunately, a film that should have been quite depressing has some pleasant moments and even some humor. For example, the woman at the karaoke bar would never create it past Simon Cowell.Young kids may be upset by one stage (although the references to cancer would be enough to discourage them anyway), but the happening is critical and only implied (the tragic effect is mentioned explicitly few times). Brief flashbacks, and one longer one, look like a Globe Ebook Encyclopedia illustration of one kind of color blindness. It is the long flashback that is the key to the entire movie.It was worthy of the name Hallmark.


This is one of the greatest films I've seen in years. While the "Matrix" crowd may consider the plot "slow," I consider it natural and unhurried. This film rests on its WRITING and PERFORMANCE, not fancy graphics, nudity, or profanity. You can watch this present with your 3-year-old.Two families are caught in a very plausible conflict. There is a lot of judgment, anger, blame, self-loathing, and fear involved. The conflict rises to an almost intolerable level, but then is eventually resolved.Like many real-life conflicts and wounds, the Russell woman walls herself off in unhealthy denial and self-judgment. The family doesn't support either, with the mother blinding herself to the depth of her daughter's guilt. Real to the self-righteous, self-justified attitude of humans in their worst light, the antagonist (Jennifer Ehle) had deepened the wound for many years, but with the artful interplay of emotions and relationships woven by Blotevogel, the wound is finally punctured and healed.My hat is off to Jill Blotevogel, Jeff Bleckner, Amber Tamblyn, and all the folks involved in making this perfect film.
