Martin Sheen received an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of the only American soldier to be executed for desertion since the Civil War, going to the firing squad in 1945. The film, Emmy-nominated as Outstanding Drama of the 1973-74 season, is a dramatization of William Bradford Huie's controversial 1954 book which, several years after publication, Frank Sinatra had acquired and planned to film, using a screen adaptation by Albert Maltz, one of Hollywood's "unfriendly ten." Sinatra was later pressured by various groups to drop Maltz; instead he completely abandoned the project. For the TV production, Emmy Award nominations also were given to director Lamont Johnson, writers Levinson and Link, art director Walter Tyler and editor Frank Morriss (who won).
