From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Valley Forge is a 1975 videotaped adaptation of the 1934 Broadway play by Maxwell Anderson about the American Revolutionary War encampment at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, shot partly on location in Canada. This television version was directed by Fielder Cook. The play starred Philip Merivale. The film stars Richard Basehart as General George Washington. Also starring are Victor Garber in a very early role as General Lafayette, and Harry Andrews as General Howe.

The plot partly concerns a planned secret escape from Valley Forge by the men who are desperate to leave behind the terrible conditions of the winter there.

The seventy-five minute production omits the principal female character, Mary Philipse, entirely, in order to condense the plot to less than ninety minutes. [1]
