Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Produced for public television, Parker Adderson, Philosopher was based on a short story by Ambrose Bierce. Harris Yulin plays Parker Addison, a Yankee spy who falls into the hands of the Rebel troops. Doomed to die at sunrise, the silver-tongued Adderson puts up a brave front for his raggedy captors. This being an Ambrose Bierce story, however, don't expect the expected--and don't expect human nature to be displayed in a sympathetic light.
