Vietnam at 24 Frames a Second
A Critical and Thematic Analysis of Over 400 Films about the Vietnam War

By Jeremy M. Devine
Foreword by Thomas Schatz

 

Table of Contents and Excerpt

 

"Jeremy M. Devine shows off an encyclopedic knowledge of Vietnam War films in [this book]. The author, a motion picture industry executive, fills this excellent book with detailed summaries of Vietnam films, from the obscure to the best known.

"Devine tells his tale chronologically. In addition to his detailed plot summaries, he offers brief analyses, focusing on how the various films relate to historical events at the time they were released. He also connects these events to issues such as the draft, the antiwar movement, POWs, and veterans' readjustment problems. The two appendices, which list Vietnam films alphabetically and chronologically, are valuable resources.... [A] wide-ranging, inclusive, and insightful book."
