The story examines the life of United States Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne won Primetime Emmy Awards for their performances. Eduard Franz reprised his role as Louis Brandeis from the original 1950 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film version. George Schaefer won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Program Achievements in Entertainment, Phil Hyams as lighting director and Bob O'Bradovich as make-up artist.
