Saddamite propaganda
10 April 2003 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I tried to post a message on here when I first added the information about Saddam's "contributions" to the movie industry. The IMDB editors must have been as effective as the Republican Guards because its been three weeks and I haven't seen it here! I mainly made the points that the two plot outliners have made (post after this was added to the "Saddam page") and that the clips I saw looked like this movie had real bad film quality: black and white, with a blueish tint, and scratchy. Keep in mind this was made in 1980 and theoretically would have had all the resources of the state behind it.
