This is an Anti-War video I made using footage from the 1974 movie "Hearts and Minds". The movie is an Academy Award winning documentary about the Vietnam War directed by Peter Davis. During his acceptance of the Oscar award, co-producer Bert Schneider said, "It's ironic that we're here at a time just before Vietnam is about to be liberated" and then read a "Greetings of Friendship to all American People" from the North Vietnamese government. Frank Sinatra retaliated later by reading a letter from Bob Hope, another presenter on the show, "The academy is saying, 'We are not responsible for any political references made on the program, and we are sorry they had to take place this evening.'"
