Davies set out across the U.S. with a camera and tape recorder to
discover what got us into vietnam and what effect the War had
on the American people, but quickly found out that this was only
half the story. The other half was the effect of the war on the
hearts and minds of the vietnamese people. From 400 hours of
films and interviews, Davies distilled the most intense examina-
tion (indictment?) of American involvement in Vietnam ever
made. Academy Award winner for best documentary.

I have had breast cancer and a mastectomy to
caire it. But it didn't change my life-or my
femininity. Of course, right after surgery, I was
discouraged. But then I received a visit from an
American Cancer Society volunteer. She gave
me a ball and a rope. And she showed me how
to use them to strengthen my aim. She gave me
information about breast forms and how to fit
my clothes. Then she told me that she, too, had
had a mastectomy. That's when she gave me
faith. I knew then, if other women could do it,
so could I. And I did.
If you know a cancer patient who needs help,
call your Unit of the American Cancer Society.
We can give people information and counseling
on all kinds of cancer. We can also give them
hope. I know. Because I had cancer and lived.
