Inhaltsangabe: A tale of the unmaking of the first American movie filmed in Vietnam in 1957, the scandalous and disasterous undertaking is finally exposed. Surviving cast and crew members explain a contorted drama behind the scenes as Audie Murphy goes to Vietnam, foreshadowing the war-to-come. It depicts Hollywood at its worst!
Vom Autor: Writing the story of this important and neglected film, I had an opportunity to relive the experience. About sixty people went to Vietnam to make The Quiet American in January of 1957. After talking to so many of the participants, all made me feel like I was one of their troupe. In the final analysis, the most amazing and distressing fact to emerge from the movie and its story is that so many highly talented, Oscar-winning people, at the height of their creative talents, came together--and the result was utterly disappointing. It is a story that parallels the later American involvement in Vietnam. That too proved to be a debacle.
