Documentary | Biography, History, Military | 2009

Movie

Cast: Narrated by Kiefer Sutherland. Interviews with: Eddie Adams, Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, Gordon Parks

Synopsis: Eddie Adams photographed 13 wars, 6 American Presidents, and every major film star of the last 50 years. History would be changed through his lens. But the person Eddie found hardest to impress was himself. In 1968, in 1/500th of a second Eddie Adams photographed a Saigon police chief, General Nygoc Loan, shooting a Vietcong guerilla point blank. Some say that photograph ended the Vietnam War. The photo brought Eddie fame and a Pulitzer, but Eddie was haunted by the man he had vilified. He would say, 'Two lives were destroyed that day, the victim's and the general.' “If An Unlikely Weapon is playing in a city near you, go.” Esquire “A must see” Examiner.com “..a riveting film subject...” Reuters ”...revealing...” NY Times
