Synopsis by Hal Erickson
After punching Frank (Larry Linville) in the eye -- accidentally, of course -- Hawkeye (Alan Alda) faces court martial. Placed under house arrest, Hawkeye makes the best of the situation by inviting his friends into his tent for some convivial drinking, conversation, and the screening of the 1945 film masterpiece Leave Her to Heaven (a scratchy black-and-white print, alas). Meanwhile, Frank is falsely accused of rape by the visiting female army investigator Col. Rachel Reese (Mary Wickes). Originally slated to air on January 14, 1975, "House Arrest" ultimately debuted on February 4th of that same year.
