Storyline

"Prisoner of Honor" documents the French Dreyfus Affair that saw a French Captain sent to Devils' Island for espionage near the end of the nineteenth century. Richard Dreyfuss plays Colonel Picquart who is given the job of justifying Dreyfus' sentence. Instead, he discovers that Dreyfus, a Jew, was merely a convenient scapegoat for the actions of the true culprit, a member of the French General staff. His attempt to right the wrong sees his military career ended and the famous French author, Emile Zola, found guilty of libel. Written by Anonymous

must have been a disappointment for alfred dreyfuss.
2 September 1999 | by dobbs-12See all my reviews

how in the name of movie making could richard make such a boring movie about a relative of his that was "given the shaft" because of his heritage? a big disappointment. if my relative was treated the way richard's was i would be darn sure the world would feel his suffering, pain, abuse and heartbreak caused by his peers and those over him in the military. dick, do it over, do it right and this time put some real electricity in it.
