AS THE "CBS SUNDAY MOVIE," MAY 28
Academy Award winner Mel Gibson ("Braveheart") stars in WE WERE SOLDIERS, the story of the first major battle of the American phase of the Vietnam War, to be broadcast as the "CBS Sunday Movie," May 28 (9:00-11:30 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
WE WERE SOLDIERS is the fact-based tale of men under fire, their common acts of uncommon valor, and their loyalty to and love for one another during one of the most savage military battles in U.S. history. On Nov. 14, 1965 in the la Drang Valley of Vietnam in a small clearing called Landing Zone X-Ray, Lt. Col. Hal Moore (Gibson) and 400 troopers from the U.S. 7th Air Cavalry become surrounded by 2,000 enemy soldiers in what would become the first, and perhaps the worst, major battle of the Vietnam War.
WE WERE SOLDIERS co-stars Madeleine Stowe, Greg Kinnear, Sam Elliott and Chris Klein and was directed by Randall Wallace for Paramount Pictures.
