Sarge premieres as a series, after introduction last week on "Iron-Sarge" as wags were calling it.
Anyway, Sarge (George Kennedy) is in San Diego, where Sallie Shockley, Harold Sakata and Ramon Bieri are introduced as regulars.
Jack Albertson is the guest, as an off-and-on churchgoer who, on learning he has less than a year to live, seeks to gain revenge on a man who — but that's the plot.
The vengeance, which is not violent, is nevertheless very humiliating and you may feel sorry for actor Roy Poole when you watch.
The climactic "vengeance" scenes were filmed at Malibu Beach. Poole plays a gangster. Sarge (George Kennedy) attempts to prevent a murder when one of his parishioners learns he has only a few months to live.
