Fall of Saigon
6 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll never forget. Frank Sinatra was hosting the awards and was on stage when word swept through the audience that Saigon, Vietnam, had fallen. There was pandemonium and cheering. The camera moved to Jane Fonda,almost a cameo appearance, taking an impromptu bow. Frank Sinatra, to his credit, asked the 'liberal Hollywood' audience to stop the cheering. He then walked off of the stage.

I'll always thank Frank Sinatra for chastising this Hollywood audience for their cheering at the fall of S. Vietnam. Ironic, Hollywood elite wildly cheering the fall of the S. Vietnamese to the communists, and who will never experience the right of free speech.
