    Ben Affleck's latest movie "Argo" is based on the true story of a bold rescue during the Iran hostage crisis in 1979.

    The CIA and the Canadian government join forces to rescue six Americans from Tehran, hidden by Canadian authorities, while 52 others sweated at gunpoint in the overrun US embassy. They concoct an elaborate, not to say hare-brained scheme to get the 6 out of the country.
