Wallenberg: A Hero's Story

Emmys went to director Lamont Johnson, costumer Tommy Welsh, film editor Paul LaMastra and sound editor Jeff Clark. Nominations, in addition to Chamberlain's, went to the film itself as Outstanding Drama and to writer Gerald Green, photographer Charles Correll and sound mixer Robin Gregory. The production won a Christopher Award as one of the Outstanding Television Movies of 1985.
