The story of the war at home and the people who lived through it. From director Francis Coppola (The Rainmaker, The Godfather saga) comes GARDENS OF STONE, a poignant look at stateside military life during the Vietnam War featuring outstanding performances by James Caan, James Earl Jones and Academy Award(r) Winner Anjelica Huston.* "Gardens of Stone" refers to Arlington National Cemetery, its endless rows of tombstones marking the graves of America's fallen war heroes.

Sweeney) is assigned to the unit, he becomes a surrogate son toSgt. Clell Hazard (Caan) and Sgt. Major "Goody" Nelson (Jones).

I had owned this movie before and had lost it by loaning it. It is a great movie for its time. "To those and those like us." "Damn few left".Published 2 months ago by Martha Butler
Moving. Brilliantly cast, beautifully acted, intelligently written. I don't think Caan's ever been better and he and Jones are an inspired pairing.Published 3 months ago by mark agnini
