Overview

If one is to believe this made-for-cable biopic, America's most notorious turncoat Benedict Arnold sold out his country primarily for the love of a woman. Acknowledged as a hero of the Revolutionary War by his commanding officer, General George Washington Kelsey Grammer, after bringing about the British surrender at Saratoga in 1776, Benedict Arnold Aidan Quinn is robbed of public acclaim by a glory-grabbing fellow officer and by the ceaseless politicking of the Continental Congress. Making matters worse, Arnold has lost what little money he has through misfortune and bad investments. At the urging of his Philadelphia-born fiancée and future second wife, the pro-British Peggy Shippen Flora Montgomery, Arnold decides to cast his lot with the Redcoats, ultimately entering into a plot to assassinate his former comrade-in-arms, Washington. Filmed in Ireland under the title Dark Eagle: Benedict Arnold, Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor made its American TV debut over the A&E cable network on January 13, 2003, and within a month it had been released on VHS and DVD.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jeffrey Iorio
"Small wages. Bitter cold. Long months of complete darkness. Constant danger. Safe return doubtful. Honor and recognition in case of success." So read a sign posted by Sir Ernest Shackleton to recruit men for his expedition to the South Pole in 1914. His journey, deftly dramatized in A&E’s Shackleton, is among the all-time great tales of human survival, a harrowing adventure that unfolds amid the harshest physical environment on earth. Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh shines as the doggedly determined Shackleton, evoking the charisma that led the explorer’s 27-man crew to believe they could somehow overcome the elements. When Shackleton’s ship, Endurance, became locked in ice just 85 miles from its destination, he led a crew of five on a 650-mile journey across a tempestuous sea, braving 100-foot waves and plummeting temperatures. Against all odds, he pledged not to lose a man -- a promise he ultimately kept, it would seem, miraculously. Filmed over five weeks in Greenland, Shackleton presents a vision of the bleak, uncharted Antarctic that is forbiddingly beautiful. In addition to VHS, the miniseries is available on a Collector’s Edition DVD that features more than three hours' worth of extra programming, including a behind-the-scenes featurette, the A&E Biography of Ernest Shackleton, and the History Channel’s Antarctica: A Frozen History. For the history buff or the armchair explorer, this is an essential addition to the Shackleton legacy.
