This is the 1965 Hallmark Hall of Fame TV production, not the 1972 movie version
6 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This isn't the first time that the 1965 Hallmark Hall of Fame TV production of "Eagle in a Cage" was confused with the 1972 movie of the same name. The DVD referred to in the review above is the 1972 film, not the Hallmark TV version with Pamela Franklin. In the Hallmark version, the leads Trevor Howard and Pamela Franklin are reunited. Just three years earlier they were both in the 1962 movie "The Lion."
