The Trial of Chaplain Jensen is a fact-based TV movie starring James Franciscus. As Navy chaplain Jensen, Franciscus portrays the only US navy officer ever court-martialed on the charge of adultery. Lynda Day George is the woman who points the accusing finger at Jensen, while Joanna Miles plays his grimly supportive wife. Though a model of decorum compared to the TV movie fare to come as the 1970's progressed, The Trial of Chaplain Jensen was tagged with a "Parental Discretion Advised" label by a nervous ABC when it first shown on February 11, 1975. It's likely, however, that most viewers young and old were glued to the competing TV movie on NBC--the unforgettable Sarah T: Portrait of a Teenage Alcoholic.
