bother (John Alexander) who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt,

recurring nightmare gives him the uneasy feeling that
Shaw is something far less heroic and far more insidious.
Is it possible that Shaw is a traitor? Can Marco convince
the Army of his suspicions? How does Shaw's powermad
mother (Lansbury) figure into this all? So many questions.
So precious little time... MPAA Rating: NR.
