The two embark on very different paths ­ Caine wanders the Earth, while Peter (Chris Potter) becomes a cop.

MEN OF THE FIGHTING LADY (1954) Based on events published in the Saturday Evening Post ­ — James A. Michener’s “The Forgotten Heroes of Korea” and Commander Harry Burns’ “The Case of the Blind Pilot” — “Men of the Fighting Lady” vividly depicts the unforgettable men caught up in the quagmire of the Korean Police Action viewed at 20,000 feet soaring at supersonic speeds. Panther Squadron flies out from an aircraft carrier, carrying out the same railroad run over and over. Two veterans preach very different philosophies to the tyro top guns ­ — one pushes for grit and glory (Frank Lovejoy), the other for savvy and safety (Keenan Wynn). Two of their charges, Lt. Howard Thayer (Van Johnson) and Ens. Kenneth Schecter (Dewey Martin), take away two very different lessons when one of the vets demonstrates the true meaning of heroism and sacrifice. While their Commander (Walter Pidgeon) sagely guides them, the writer (Louis Calhern as James Michener) observes it all.

Filmed in front of an intimate audience of 39, “Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles” takes aim at such subjects as pornography, religion, government, self-examination, and the miracle of existence.

CRISIS HOTLINE: VETERANS PRESS 1 (2014) Today, more soldiers are lost to suicide than on the battlefield. After serving their country overseas, many military veterans in their darkest moments turn to the unique services of the Veterans Crisis Line to help with traumas like post-traumatic stress, depression, homelessness and drug dependence. This 40-minute documentary is an intimate look at the vital work of several responders who provide life-saving intervention and desperately needed referrals through the 24-hour Veterans Crisis Line, which provides support and hope to active and retired service members. Directed by Ellen Goosenberg Kent (Wartorn: 1861-2010, Alive Day Memories: Home from Iraq), and produced by Dana Perry (Boy Interrupted), the film focuses on the intense, and at times chilling, calls received by the crisis line and the dedicated work of the responders and rescue coordinators who help distraught veterans find reasons to live.
