The tragedy that occurred on the U.S.S. Indianapolis is the worst at-sea loss of life in the history of the U.S. Navy and a horrifying indictment of covert motives, corruption and scandal. Captain Charles Butler McVay (Stacy Keach) survives the ordeal andbecomes a scapegoat as he is court-martialed in a highly controversial U.S. military cover-up.
The incredible true story of the Navy cruiser USS Indianapolis─which was sunk in the Philippine Sea in July 1945 after delivering the Hiroshima atomic bomb, and whose 900 crew members fought to survive in shark-infested waters for five days─is recounted in this riveting drama. Stacy Keach, Richard Thomas, David Caruso, and Carrie Snodgress star. 93 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
