Doc decides to forgo burial at Arlington Cemetery and, with the help of his old buddies, takes the casket on a bittersweet trip up the East Coast to his home in suburban New Hampshire. Along the way, Doc, Sal and Mueller reminisce and come to terms with shared memories of the war that continues to shape their lives.

The Untold Story of Fame, Love, Tragedy & 90 years of American Entertainment
Through The Eyes of the Woman Who Did It All – Rose Marie. She’s “left them laughing” and applauding for nine decades, as she traversed through every 20th century entertainment medium that ever was as a singer and brilliant comedienne. With “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” she was part of the cast of one of the most iconic television shows of the 1960s and what’s more, she played a woman TV writer who held her own with the men, thus, planting the seed in the minds of her viewers, that girls could grow up to have interesting and creative jobs too!
