TV film about a somewhat forgotten incident.
9 July 1999 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

This made for TV film is done semi-documentary style with certain parts resembling a stage play. The story is the important part. North Korean forces capture an American Naval vessel and the crew is imprisoned for nearly a year. Their captivity at the hands of the North Koreans is depicted through flashback sequences. Recently Arthur Kent hosted a documentary on the History Channel about the Pueblo incident that was superb.
