Sergeant Ryker ★★½ 1968

Confident lead acting from Marvin as a U.S. serviceman accused of treason during the Korean War carries this otherwise blah army/courtroom drama. Remake of 1963 TV film “The Case Against Sergeant Ryker.” Dillman is good as Marvin's energetic lawyer. 85m/C VHS . Lee Marvin, Bradford Dillman, Vera Miles, Peter Graves, Lloyd Nolan, Murray Hamilton; D: Buzz Kulik; M: John Williams.
