Duval & Carter - Great Team !
29 November 2014 | by jmarcheseSee all my reviews

"Cry For Help" is a story about striking contrast between compassionate medical cores men and fighting men.

Sheldon Stark wrote an excellent screenplay portraying medical cores men amidst a background of firefight & violence. Upon his capture by King 2, Peter Halsman, (excellently played by Robert Duval) dedicated medic, teams up with Doc to help a family in need. As Doc & Halsman become friends, mutual respect grows and their similarities come to the forefront in spite of King 2's coldness to Halsman. Halsman bridges the gap with both French & Americans showing the good fortune of communication; he's trilingual.

Director Richard Benedict did a fine job with action scenes rotating German & American firefight scenes in rapid succession and providing excellent close-ups at key moments.

In "Cry For Help" one can develop a real sense of finality in a fatal gunshot wound as many times death is not instantaneous.

The ending sequence is beautifully done and portrays Lieutenant Hanley as a fair minded human being. And Kirby's final action is especially priceless!
