Honoring a Fallen Comrade

Delbert Mann

Delbert Mann was an Emmy-winning and Oscar-winning director, for the Producers' Showcase episode "Our Town" and the feature film "Marty," respectively. He was also a fighter pilot during World War II. As we remember those who gave their lives in service of our country on this Memorial Day, have a look at Mann's touching story of how the fate of fellow pilot Rufus Burns altered the course of Mann's life:

Thank you for your service, Rufus.
