"The Yanks are Coming" aired in 1974 and filmed in Savannah. The one hour-long documentary-style World War I drama blended archival footage with a fictionalized account of four idealistic college buddies who ship off to France as doughboys. It was one of four episodes in the American Heritage Specials series presented by ABC/Texaco. Stars included David Huffman, Christopher Curry and Dennis Kear.
