A Yank in Viet-Nam is a 1964 war drama film. It was filmed entirely in South Vietnam during the Vietnam War.

The film follows a U.S. Marine Corps pilot (Marshall Thompson) who is shot down over the Vietnamese jungle. In his endeavor to get to safety, he meets a female guerrilla fighter (Kieu Chinh) and a nationalist named Hong (played by the Filipino actor Mario Barri).

In addition to acting in the film, Marshall Thompson also served as the film's director. The screenplay is by Jane Wardell and Jack Lewis, based on a story by Lewis. The film was originally to be titled Year of the Tiger but in November 1963 it was retitled A Yank in Viet-Nam.[1]
