Operation Market Garden, September 1944: The Allies attempt to capture several strategically important bridges in the Netherlands in the hope of breaking the German lines. However, mismanagement and poor planning result in its failure.
Classic "Masterpiece Theater" adaptation, one I'd like to see again.
This was my introduction to Stanley ("Zulu") Baker & to Sîan ("I, Clavdivs") Phillips, and a very pleasant one at that, and I enjoyed this version much more than the B&W 1940s Oscar winner. The acting was very convincing throughout, and it was evident that the production was a labor of love & Welsh pride, very much in keeping with the book.
Sadly, it's been a quarter century since I saw this on "Masterpiece Theater" and to my knowledge it has not been shown since, nor is it available on video cassette.
