World War II inductee Marion Hedgepeth (Jan-Michael Vincent) thought things couldn't get worse after he failed Marine boot camp and got sent packing in a washout's bleached-blue gear. He was proven wrong after a deserter mugged him and swapped clothes. As he hitches home in regulation uniform, small-towners take him for a hero...will he regret not correcting them? Glynnis O'Connor, Katherine Helmond, Dana Elcar also star; and yes, that's Richard Gere as the mugger. 90 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
