The Hanoi Hilton is a 1987 right-wing propaganda film directed by Canadian-American conservative activist and filmmaker Lionel Chetwynd which focuses on the experiences of the mostly hawkish American prisoners of war who were held in the infamous Hoa Lo Prison in Hanoi in a fictionalized version of the true events of Hanoi during the Vietnam war. Despite it being right-wing propaganda that distorts the truth of the Vietnam war and what it was really all about, the film has nonetheless gained a cult following of veterans who went out to rent it, buy it, and borrow it from one another from whoever owned it. The DVD edition includes an interview with the most well-known Hoa Lo survivor, Senator John McCain and waited until the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election was over to release it. And why? It's a conservative film which is filled with all the propaganda that neoconservatives love.
