I came back from Vietnam in late 1969. My dad, whom I never really got to know because he always worked as did all of us kids, died in late in early 1970. He was only 48. This movie came out and about 6 of us guys went to see it one afternoon at a local theater. Never has anything ever hit me so hard. Even now.....I just had to stop typing because my emotions overwhelm me and the tears are falling once again....... If you're a man you know how hard it is not to cry in front of other men, but I sobbed that day. I wasn't ashamed or embarrassed, I missed my dad. My life has never been the same since.... I am now 72 years old and the pain is still there. I look forward to our reunion one day in the not to distant future in heaven.

Para de llorar. Todos tenemos esa experiencia.

Para de llorar. Todos tenemos esa clase de perdida. Debemos sobreponernos y no trasmitir ese dolor a futuro. Lo siento. Hasta pronto.

I remember I first watched this as a freshman in college. I expected it to be an action thriller. Needless to say i had no idea what I was in for. Such an overwhelmingly powerful movie about friendship, love, and the horrible effects of war. I was speechless and in tears at the end. Every time I hear Cavatina I get emotional because it's such an emotional song and captures perfectly the atmosphere of the movie. The Deer Hunter and Cavatina will always have a special place in my heart.

Me too. Purdue University, 1978. I learned the meaning of the word, intensity. 10 or 12 years prior, I corresponded, as a Cub Scout assignment, with the real life version. Russ Allen, Monon, Indiana, a Green Beret that had the time to write letters back to me. I still have them. I tried to meet him a few years ago, but he had just passed. If someone in the RD Allen family of Monon, IN wants those letters, I will gladly deliver them with my appreciation.
