Summary
"The true story behind Ben Affleck's film "Argo, our Man in Tehran" features extensive interviews with Ken Taylor, Canada's former ambassador to Iran, who hid six Americans in his official residence and obtained the counterfeit documents that allowed them to make their dramatic escape from Tehran. The film uncovers new information and adds context, including an historical overview of Iran, interviews with the rescued Americans, former Prime Minister Joe Clark, ex-CIA officer Tony Mendez, and many others"--Container
