Suddenly an Eagle

ABC News

Suddenly An Eagle was a documentary of very real distinction, in the Bicentennial year. In parallel stories it told of events and ideas that were in conflict in America and England and how these conflicts led to the Revolutionary War. Without costumes, without dramatic sequences, but with superb narration by Lee J. Cobb and Kenneth Griffith, visits to historical sites formed the living background for this drama of America’s bid for freedom. A Peabody Award to a significant documentary, ABC News’ Suddenly An Eagle.
