I am currently a student at Brown University who is doing research on a film made in 1964 which re-enacted the events of the Tonkin Gulf incidents. The film was made between August 13th and 22nd of '64 and includes cards between cut-scenes that identify it as having been made by the Pacific Fleet Mobile Photo Unit, which is no longer in existence. The film was found at the National Archives by a researcher working on the documentary the Fog of War in 2001 and shots from it are used during the Fog of War's opening credits. I am basically trying to answer the questions of who authorized the film, who paid for it, for what purpose it was made, and to whom it was shown. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
