  • Andrew Duggan as an ex-Marine platoon leader and Leonard Nimoy as a movie director.

    9.0
    Andrew Duggan played a man who was a Marine platoon leader in WWll, the same platoon that Bill Rice now commands. Leonard Nimoy plays a brash, brilliant film director who is going to make a movie of Duggan's heroic actions in a famous battle. But Rice discovers Duggan was never in the battle (due to no fault of his own), and he has been living with the guilt for almost two decades. Duggan was an honorable, competent officer, just not a "hero". Nimoy decides to make the movie anyway, showing Duggan as he was. Martine Bartlett played Duggan's wife.moreless
