Yeah, and the C.I.A. were not the big heroes of this event. It was the Canadian Embassy who rescued the Americans, got them Canadian passports, and dreamed up the escape plan, aided by the C.I.A. Not one breath of this was in the movie Argo. Lois

That's what I heard. Between this and "Lincoln" it seems that Hollywood just can not represent History or truth of any kind very well at all.

They take what is called 'literary license' in order to create a more entertaining movie for yu because in THEIR opinion the truth is not worth watching! Duh!

Conservatives usually have a few bones to pick with Hollywood over the Academy Awards. Not content with merely opening it, Hollywood pushes the envelope, often with questionable taste and mockery of common values.

Nevertheless, Washington and Hollywood are linked at the hip like Siamese twins. It's a love-hate relationship; one with changing party affections over the years. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan each sent greetings to the awards ceremony -- FDR by radio in 1941 and Ronald Reagan with videotape 40 years later. Both offered encouragement to one of our most popular cultural institutions.

The real stars, as both Hollywood...
