Featuring Meryl Streep, John Lithgow and Mary Beth Hurt in some of their earliest television appearances, this 1895 thriller by William Gillette tells the tale of a Union spy (Lithgow) working to seize control of the telegraph office in Richmond, Virginia in 1864. Posing as a wounded Confederate captain named Thorne, the spy's false orders to a Confederate Army commander raise the suspicions of a southern agent, who uses a local girl (Streep) as his reluctant accomplice to set a trap.
