Good Morning, Vietnam (23-Dec-1987)

Director: Barry Levinson

Writer: Mitch Markowitz

Original Score by: Alex North

Producers: Mark Johnson; Larry Brezner

Keywords: Comedy, Drama, Vietnam War, Talk Radio, Explosions

Adrian Cronauer receives assignment to Armed Services Radio in Saigon during the early days of the Vietnam War. Cronauer's act is a bit too irreverent for his superiors, but the rank and file love it. Much of Williams' performance was done without a script, and he outshines all other actors in the film. Limited storyline, with some dramatic moments; loosely based on the life of the real Adrian Cronauer. Robin Williams received an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.
