Along those lines, a couple of notable supporting actors that I did not mention in my review include the always reliable Grady Sutton as Sam, O'Brien's extremely tolerant office assistant in "Torrid Zone", and the "I can't believe the 'Skipper' was ever that young" Alan Hale, Jr. as the oversized cadet initially slated for the drag female lead in the West Point Story's stage production. Sutton especially made me smile because I had just watched "The Bank Dick" with my family a couple of nights before.
