Testimony of Two Men was outstanding, and one of the best I have ever watched. I realize some may class it as a soap opera, but I really enjoyed the story (drama, romance, history, etc.). The lineup of actors was great, both well known and not so well known. At the time, I developed a major crush on Laurie Prang. Unfortunately she did not do that many roles after this one, that I am aware of. David Birney was excellent, and I especially enjoyed David Huffman, who died much too young. Steve Forrest was one of my favorite actors at the time, and of course there was the ethereal beauty of Barbara Parkins and Linda Purl.
I have searched for years, to find a commercial video of the complete miniseries. I managed to get a rough copy from broadcast television, in the 90's when it had been cut down to 2 hours, and I have just about worn it out, watching it so often. I long for a re-broadcast of the full program. I would really enjoy it, if a DVD could be issued, of the complete miniseries.
