Audie Murphy in Vietnam

War hero and movie star Audie Murphy wanted to make a serious film after a series of minor cowboy pictures. His friend Willard Willingham interested him in a picture with Joseph L. Mankiewicz, costarring with Michael Redgrave and based on the best-seller THE QUIET AMERICAN by Graham Greene. This book traces the near catastrophe that came to the first American film company to film in Vietnam in 1957, telling the story of one of the first American casualties of the upcoming war.
