MOVIES FOR TELEVISION: On the set of the 1972 DGA Award-winning movie for television That Certain Summer. Pictured are the film's director, Lamont Johnson (center), and actors Martin Sheen (left) and Hal Holbrook (right). That Certain Summer was a landmark movie for television. It brought to many American homes the turmoil faced by gay men reluctant to tell their families the truth about their sexual orientation. The film won not only the DGA Award for movies for television, but from the five 1972 DGA television winners, Lamont Johnson was selected as the most outstanding television director.
