Rage ★★ 1972 (PG)
Scott's directorial debut. A military helicopter sprays peaceloving rancher Scott and his son with nerve gas. The son's death is covered up; the rancher embarks on a vengeful rampage. Scott's sudden transformation to avenging killer is implausible and overwrought. 100m/C VHS . George C. Scott, Richard Basehart, Martin Sheen, Barnard Hughes, Kenneth Tobey, Ed Lauter, Nicolas Beauvy, Dabbs Greer; D: George C. Scott; C: Fred W. Koenekamp.
