Man and Moment | T. Moffatt Burriss and the Crossing

Few know the privilege of being portrayed on the silver screen by Robert Redford, but that's exactly what happened to South Carolinian Moffatt Burriss. Major Cook, Redford's character in "A Bridge Too Far," was based in part on Burriss' heroic actions during World War II. The 1977 film tells Hollywood's version of the failed attempt to capture several bridges in Operation Market Garden.
