Show #894 Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks has been covered a few times but I've not heard mention of Forrest Gump.
I encourage people to view McNamara's Folly, presented by author Hamilton Gregory. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J2VwFDV4-g
Gregory talks about the impact of fulfilling quotas by sending low IQ troops to Vietnam. What a contrast to Hanks' feelgood movie.
After this, Forrest Gump just looks like PR for the Department of Defense. It appears many of Hanks movies create a false impression of US history.
