Jane Fonda Talks About Her Visit to Vietnam Ca. 1972Unknown - 1972
Actress Jane Fonda was one of the most vocal protestors of the Vietnam War and worked on three anti-war films in the 1970s. The 1971 New York Times publication of the Pentagon Papers - a classified Defense Department study of the faulty decision-making during the war - led to a stronger anti-war sentiment among the public. In 1972, Fonda made a two-week trip to North Vietnam, during which she was photographed sitting atop an enemy weapon and broadcast on the radio pleading with American soldiers to disobey orders to fight. This incident generated controversy, and she later apologized for her carelessness.
