“Hearts and Minds” Redux

New York, N.Y.

I see in Newsweek (4/6/09, pg. 8) that Peter Davis's 1975 Academy Award winning documentary Hearts and Minds is being re-released. Deirdre and I watched the film on DVD a couple years ago and found that it still holds up quite well.

I reviewed Hearts and Minds for the April 11, 1975 issue of The Stute, the student newspaper of the Stevens Institute of Technology, where I was then a senior, and here is that review. I have not attempted to correct any faulty grammar or improve the writing.
