Vietnam war in Television[edit]

Someone should make a 'Vietnam War in Television' companion article. (talk) 21:22, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

How come? Tour of Duty. China Beach. Gomer Pyle pretended there was no war.
Ten Thousand Day War and Vietnam: A Television History, derived from Karnow's book, on the documentary side.
Is there more? That list does not have the makings of a separate page. Varlaam (talk) 18:33, 27 September 2010 (UTC)

Vietnamese Films?[edit]

It would be interesting to see vietnamese films about the war mentioned, or just generally some non anglo viewpoints if those exist. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:27, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

When I was in Vietnam years ago, I visited what still remained of the Hanoi Hilton. I didn't see any movies around, just bootlegged copies of Bao Ninh's novel in English.
I have now added a partially Vietnamese Vietnam War film, available on Russian DVD. First one I have come across.

Is Port of Shadows the first film featuring at Vietnam vet?[edit]

Is Marcel Carné's Port of Shadows the first film featuring a Vietnam vet? Jean Gabin plays a character who has been involved in fighting at Tonkin, presumably at the Yen Bai mutiny. Should this be added at the top of the list? --Evenmadderjon (talk) 15:51, 7 September 2012 (UTC)

Should films about the First Indochina War be in this article?[edit]

I'm thinking about removing them. What say you?--Sus scrofa (talk) 10:57, 22 April 2016 (UTC)

Consensus of one I guess.--Sus scrofa (talk) 17:53, 2 May 2016 (UTC)
