An adaptation by NBC’s Ernest Kinoy of Ernest Hemmingway's great novel For Whom The Bell Tolls, with intermission commentary by Diana E Trilling.
The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades, attached to a republican guerrilla unit during the Spanish Civil War, is regarded as one of Hemingway's best works, and was inspired by Hemingway's own experiences in the conflict.
