The Blue and the Gray ()

directed by
featuring Colleen Dewhurst, Gregory Peck, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Vaughn, Stacy Keach

Originally networkcast in three installments, the 8-hour Blue and the Gray is a sprawling adaptation of a story concept by Civil War historian Bruce Catton. The drama begins in 1859, with young war correspondent-to-be John Hammond meeting future Union officer Stacy Keach at the trial of abolitionist John Brown (Sterling Hayden). They are reunited two years later during the presidential campaign of Abraham Lincoln (Gregory Peck) and are eyewitnesses at the battle of Bull Run. Keach marries Julia Duffy in 1862, while Virginia-born Hammond writes his dispatches from the Deep South. A subplot concerning a family torn by North/South loyalties is resolved just before Appomattox. The Blue and the Gray was first telecast November 14, 16 and 17, 1982. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

I Have You Now

by jdmac23 on Feb 16, 2011

Having worn out my VHS copy of this made-for-TV movie several years ago, I had forgotten how much I loved it. Thought of Alibris and hoped I could find another copy out there somewhere. Bought the three (3) disk set, brand new, and found it to be in perfect condition. Even contained scenes I had not seen in the VHS version. To anyone interested in seeing a very good, historicaly accurate, yet entertaining presentation of a dark time in American history, I highly recommend this movie. And best of all, no commercials.
