Quotes

Gen. Washington: I'll tell you what you're fighting for - -something that has never been on this green earth since man first worked it with his hands, and which does not exist and never will exist unless we put it there - the right of each man to govern himself in his own way.

Excellent Performances
9 November 2004 | by Tony RomeSee all my reviews

I saw this film on Television, Christmas Eve 1989, back when CBS had a late late show. The film shows both sides of the battle, during the Revolutionary War. Excellent performances by Richard Basehart, Simon Ward, and a very young Christopher Walken. This film is shot on a video format, which gives it a look as if it were shot on stage. I am surprised this is not on DVD or video. This film would make an excellent addition to Drama fans film libraries. They certainly don't make made for television films like this one anymore. I give this film

****/**** Great.
