THIN RED LINE, THE (THE WAR COLLECTION)
A gripping portrayal of honour and commitment adapted from James Jones' classic novel, produced by Academy Award® winner Philip Yordan (Broken Lance), The Thin Red Line investigates the lives of soldiers pushed to the limits of service as they prepare to do battle and take the infamous Guadalcanal from the Japanese.
Career soldier Sgt Welch (Jack Warden, Heaven Can Wait) and Private Donnell (Keir Dullea, 2001: A Space Odyssey) carry out company orders to drive the enemy out of a treacherous wall of caves known as 'The Dancing Elephant', but in the heat of battle the stakes are raised, leading to ructions in the ranks. As the soldiers struggle to carry out their mission and survive, a personal battle presents itself that will test their very resolve.
Heroic men at odds with each other, both marching 'the thin red line' of service to the US Army during WWII, their journey is a precarious existence between the strict sanity and the chaotic madness of a world at war.
