| Better than the 1990 Bethune film
At least, that's the way I remember it. The TV version had a much lower budget, so there was no fancy location footage, just a lot more drama.

It's a pity that with all the controversy surrounding the making of the 1990 effort, that the 1977 film could not have enjoyed a brief resurrection. Oh well, that's Canada, eh.

Jack Granatstein at the War Museum in Ottawa was lamenting the sad state of Canadian historical knowledge this week in the wake of the national poll just conducted. No one seems to know what "Vimy Ridge" means anymore. Meanwhile films like this one are collecting dust on a shelf at the CBC. Please consider this a comment for Remembrance Day.
