The Red Badge of Courage

The Red Badge of Courage

Audie Murphy--the most decorated American GI of World War II--stars in this adaptation of one of the great novels of American literature, a story of one man forced to confront both cowardice and courage within himself, The Red Badge of Courage. The United States Civil War: The first time young Henry Fleming (Murphy) faces battle, he turns and runs. Fleming is knocked unconscious, but when he returns to his unit, he lies, saying that he was shot. Yet, somehow, in this vicious internecine war with tens of thousands of soldiers dying in single battles, young Henry Fleming finds a deep well of courage within himself when his unit is commanded to lead a charge that Fleming knows will be suicidal.
