Originals: A Bright Shining Lie
A Bright Shining Lie
Starring: Bill Paxton, Bo Eason, William L. Mansey
Directed By: Terry George
Genre: Drama

Lieutenant Colonel John Paul Vann was a hero and a renegade, a brilliant man full of contradictions. He was a warrior who worked hard for peace. He was a career militarist who shared confidential information with journalists who were critical of the war. He was an officer who resigned from the Army in 1964, only to return in 1965 as a civilian who was given the designation of General and even led combat troops. His maverick ways made Vann a controversial and unpopular figure to a military mired in delusion, unwilling to listen to an officer who understood his enemy.
