Picks and Pans Review: She Stood Alone: the Tailhook Scandal
ABC (Mon., May 22, 9 p.m. ET)
Gail O'Grady (NYPD Blue) portrays Paula Coughlin, a Naval officer whose complaint of sexual harassment at the Las Vegas Tailhook convention in 1991 set off the scandal that rocked the Navy. Despite a stiff-necked, almost documentary-style narrative, the film is powerful. And the recreation of the Tailhook gauntlet is truly harrowing. An impressive supporting cast includes Hal Holbrook, Rip Torn, Robert Urich, Cameron Bancroft and Bess Armstrong.
