Michael (Robert de Niro), Nick (Christopher Walken and Steven (John Savage) are three buddies from the steel mill town of Clairton, Penn.They are like schoolmates, hanging out in a local bar and enjoying weekends of deer-hunting. Michael and Nick are also both in love with Linda (Meryl Streep), who seems to juggle both of the men. But their placid life is soon to be changed after they are enlisted in the airborne infantry of Vietnam. So they all celebrate a goodbye at Steven's wedding and they leave to Vietnam, where they are captured by the enemy and forced to play Russian roulette against each other. Stanley Myers (1933–1993) was a prolific British film composer who scored over sixty films. He is best known for "Cavatina", an evocative guitar piece that served as the signature theme for Michael Cimino's 1978 film The Deer Hunter, and for which Myers won the Ivor Novello Award. A somewhat different version of this work, performed by John Williams, had appeared in The Walking Stick (1970). And yet another version had lyrics added. Cleo Laine and Iris Williams, in separate recordings as “He Was Beautiful”, helped to make "Cavatina" become even more popular.
