Synopsis
Harrowing dramatization of the story of Navy Commander Jeremiah Denton, who was shot down during a bombing mission over Vietnam in 1965, and his torture as a POW over the next seven years while organizing a resistance movement among his fellow prisoners. Surprisingly, Hal Holbrook was overlooked at Emmy Award time, although a nomination went to editor John Woodcock.
