FTA (1972)

Made just around the time of the infamous "Hanoi Jane" incident, this fascinating documentary features Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland amongst a troupe of a travelling revue called FTA, which can be translated as either "Free the Army", or "F*** the Army", which visited US army camps during the Vietnam to do musical and comedy routines with anti-War sentiments. Seeing this today, one wonders how in hell they managed to talk their way into pulling these acts off right in front of the military, much less film it?
