Trivia

The photojournalist preserving a man's execution was inspired the the real life execution of Nguyen Van Lem, a Viet Cong soldier, on February 1, 1968 in the wake of the Tet offensive. He was executed by notoriously corrupt Saigon Police Chief General Nguyen Ngoc Loan in retaliation for Nguyen Van Lem's participation in the execution of one of the General's chief officers and his family. The general executed him by pistol shot to the head and it was preserved on both still and moving picture images. These would be broadcast on the national news back in the United States horrifying the American public and contributing greatly to opposition to the war. See more »
