A "real" Yank In Vietnam
29 December 2006 | by gs8055See all my reviews

I've been waiting for years for this movie to come out on VHS or DVD. I wanted to give it to my father, Donald Seely, who acted the role of Major Kastens in the movie. Unfortunately, he passed away at the age of 85 last year. One of the most memorable parts of his, and our, life was living in Vietnam from 1961-1963 when he met Marshall Thompson, who was from his hometown of Peoria, IL. My dad was a MACV adviser in Saigon with the U.S. Army. He and Marshall Thompson hit it off immediately and the friendship began. Kieu Chinh, who also starred in a Yank In Vietnam, was my father's secretary and a local Vietnamese film actress. During the filming of the movie the entire cast would frequently come to our house for dinner and parties. Marshall Thompson invited our family to Hollywood to view the film prior to its release to the public. It may not have been the best film about Vietnam, but it was the most authentic. It was filmed in Vietnam at the beginning of the war. Until Marshall Thompson's death, he and my father remained in touch. Kieu Chinh kept in touch with my dad until he passed away. This movie definitely has sentimental value to the Seely family.
