Movie Info

Dyan Cannon stars in this 4-hour TV drama as Jenny Baines, an American woman of the pre-WW II era. Anxious to learn the fate of her son, a pilot who was shot down over Germany, Jenny travels to Berlin. Here she is reunited with her husband Hartmut Becker, who is now a high-ranking Nazi officer. With the help of allied prisoners, Jenny is smuggled into the POW camp where her son is presumably being held. The part of Jenny's son is played by Hugh Grant, meaning that Jenny's War is probably due for a revival. The 2-part drama was originally syndicated the week of October 26, 1985, as part of the Operation Prime Time series.

Critic Reviews for Jenny's War

All Critics (1) | Top Critics (1)

There are enough holes in the story for all the vehicles that end up in fiery explosions to drive through side by side, but things move fast, and before you're ready to question one improbable event it is succeeded by another.
