An Unlikely Weapon Photos

Movie Info

Director Susan Morgan's Kiefer Sutherland--narrated documentary spans all of Pulitzer Prize--winning photographer Eddie Adams' career, from his days shooting celebrities for "Time" magazine to the time he spent snapping world-renowned images of the Vietnam War. Morgan focuses closely on the latter, using interviews with Adams and media figures like Tom Brokaw and Peter Jennings to explore the ramifications of Adams's most indelible photo -- a U.S. general executing a Vietcong guerrilla.
