fascinating what people can adapt to
This film was another job for Dreslock to perform for his North Koreanmasters.
Clearly he was a troubled and insubordinate soldier who defected ratherthan get in trouble for leaving his post with a document he forged. Butwhat an interesting and different life he then had.
North Koreans live in perpetual fear under such circumstances it isjust easiest to believe the state line. Dreslock is a typical example.
He also shows how you can take someone who would have amounted tonothing in the US and turn him into something quite interesting.Someone who speaks Korean fluently lectures at Universities etc etc....
What would be really interesting is for him to show up now in the USand do a second film.
To judge him from this film is unfair...utter the wrong word and he orhis family would face death or worse.
The real losers in all this was the North Koreans no one believes theirpropaganda in the West. Think millions starved while this dufus wasswigging down Johnny Walker Black Label. It is still fascinating.
