Excellent Vietnam War Drama
20 October 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dennis Weaver is excellent as a P.O.W. thought missing in action, who turns up years later to find his life changed. Anne Francis plays the same kind of role she did in "Hook Line, and Sinker". Weaver really shows the confusion and frustration that returning home from war can bring.
