The Broadway Theatre Archive presents another program in its series of televised plays from the 60s to the 80s. The measure of a man is what he achieves in his lifetime, but when one's hopes are aimed too high, even modest gains can seem disappointing. This story written by Phillip Hayes Dean portrays one man (Dick Anthony Williams from THE JERK) as a man at a difficult crossroads in life because his unrealistic hopes have not turned out as he optimistically dreamed. Featuring an outstanding performance by Louis Gossett, Jr. (AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN)
