Go Tell the SpartansDVD
Academy Award Winner Burt Lancaster (Run Silent, Run Deep) delivers one of the finest performances of his career as a hard-boiled major in command of a grubby Vietnam outpost in this classic film of wartime confrontation. The war was still a "conflict" and American soldiers were merely "advisors", yet the ambushes, the betrayals and the brutality were all very real. While the riveting action concentrates on a single, obscure incident, this excellent, understated and sharply intelligent film illuminates the vast landscape of an era. Directed by veteran Hollywood and TV director Ted Post (Magnum Force) and featuring top-notch cinematography by Harry Stradling (Convoy) with a stellar cast that includes Craig Wasson (Body Double), Marc Singer (The Beastmaster), Jonathan Goldsmith (Most Interesting Man in the World commercials), Joe Unger (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Clyde Kusatsu (The Challenge), James Hong (Big Trouble in Little China), David Clennon (The Thing) and Dabney Coleman (9 to 5).
