Marlon Brando is magnificent as Harrison MacWhite, a U.S. ambassador sent to a Southeast Asian nation in the grip of conflict between democratic and communist forces. MacWhite strives to defuse the dangerously volatile situation, which may prove to be far more complex than he could have possibly imagined. Engaging political drama, based on the novel by Eugene Burdick and William Lederer, co-stars Sandra Church, Pat Hingle, Eiji Okada, Arthur Hill. 120 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English; Subtitles: English (SDH).
