Vietnam, Texas (1990)


Vietnam, Texas is a 1990 action crime film by director Robert Ginty.

Also known as Orange Curtain (working title, US) and also stylised Vietnam Texas.


A priest learns that he fathered a child during his tour of duty in Vietnam and that the mother and child has relocated to Houston, Texas in the Little Saigon quarters. Searching for them, he also finds massive prejudice against the Vietnamese people, particularly among the fishing community in which they are trying to work. Setting out to right the wrongs, the priest tends to use more fisticuffs than friendly, priestly persuasion.
