This TV Movie is about the Tehran Conference between FDR, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin. It shows the interaction between the three leaders at the close of the Second World War.
This production was the first to be filmed expressly for broadcast in the high-definition television (HDTV) format.
Joseph V. Stalin:
Experience has taught me to face up to reality, no matter how unpleasant it may be, and to tell the truth.
Throughout the movie, there are various maps of Europe. Nearly every one of them shows Europe with post-WWII borders, specifically Germany and Poland. Austria and Czeckoslovkia are shown as independent, while most maps of the early 1940's showed them as part of Germany (at least western Czeckoslovkia). They avoid the anachronism of East and West Germany, but Germany is shown with its c. 1990 borders after (re-)unification, Poland is shown with its postwar borders which were drastically different than those before the war, and the German state of East Prussia does not appear.
