New York Times - 10/21/1988
"...[Hackman's] quintessential decency and ordinariness have never seemed more affecting....An effective cast and a fair amount of grit..."

Product Description:

Down behind enemy lines during the Vietnam War, an officer must rely on a scout pilot to risk his life and his military career to rescue him. Based on the book by William C. Anderson.

Plot Synopsis:

Based on a true story, this is the heroic tale of an American officer forced to parachute into enemy territory when his plane is shot down during the Vietnam War. A missile intelligence expert with no combat experience, he must survive in the dangerous jungle on his wits alone -- until a reconnaissance flyer, nicknamed "Bird Dog", spots him. With limited radio contact and some expert flying, the daring pilot attempts to rescue the officer before our boys-in-green devastate the countryside with a napalm attack.
