Welcome to Saturday At The Movies with Saigon Kids.
This week we’re at the Kinh Do Theater in old Saigon since this film is about the leader of the people who were responsible for the bombing of the theater.
This film is from the 1960s TV show “The Twentieth Century” regular feature “Man Of The Month” narrated by Walter Cronkite airing in 1966.
This film is a biography of Ho Chi Minh (commonly known as Uncle Ho), political activities of the time, the French defeat, and Viet-nam during the mid-1960s.
At the time of the filming Ho Chi Minh was 75 years old living in Hanoi.
Producer: The National Archives and Records Administration, National Security Council, Central Intelligence Agency (09/18/1947 – 12/04/1981).
This film was made possible by a donation from James Jacobs.
The film provides an interesting perspective of the events leading up to the Viet-nam era, the country and it’s people. As well as, some insight about Ho Chi Minh’s main purpose – and, perhaps why today he is regarded as the George Washington of Viet-nam.
