Directed by propaganda veteran John Ford, Vietnam! Vietnam! took a foolish pro-war stance. When Ford started production, the U.S. government was all for the Vietnam conflict, giving the director access to footage of civilian massacres, scenes of battle and anti-war protests. He even got Charlton Heston to narrate the thing, and ended the film with commentary from celebrities like Ronald Reagan. But the nation’s feelings toward Vietnam changed radically while Ford was in the editing room. As a result, Vietnam! Vietnam! was shelved, though the film has since found its way out of cinematic oblivion. Talk about your all-time backfires.
