Some other Vietnam films--THE GREEN BERETS (which at least deserves commentary as the only major fiction film released during the war itself); CASUALITIES OF WAR (Brian De Palma, with Michael J. Fox) and GOOD MORNING VIETNAM (Barry Levinson, with Robin Williams) deserve some mention for making at least some attempt to deal with the impact of the war on the Vietnamese themselves. There were a number of films about Korea made after the fact, notablely PORK CHOP HILL. THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE plays off fears of N. Korean brainwashing while at the same time satirizing American McCarthyism. The brainwashing fear I remember being promoted by a cheap production film (probably made for tv) and narrated by Ronald Reagan. It was shown several times in class during my elementary school days (which dates me, I know).
