Program Description

James returns from the front no longer the self-righteous and self-centered young man who once had believed that the regard for truth was more important than the regard for a persons feelings. He has learned not only that truth is not so simple as he had thought but also that people's feelings are more real than he had dreamed. When he comes across the picture of Hazel's pilot, he makes no scene; instead, he quietly invites her out. And for the sake of comforting Rose after Gregory’s death, he will recite those simplistic truths that she needs to hear and that he no longer believes -- about heroism and sacrifice and pride.
