I agree with Xlegion's review.
I remember this, along with many other bi-centennial TV productions, with great fondness. They were made in a much less cynical era (even though Vietnam was a fresh memory in people's minds.) This one was striking in casting, script, acting, everything. I would love to have a copy or see it on a streaming service. In fact, I think that a streaming service could do well with gathering all of the TV specials of this era along with the Bi-centennial minutes, etc. Very well done with this one. Highly recommend.
