"Studio Six Productions" Accoutrements

Artifact Details

Under the guise of producing a Hollywood movie, a CIA team was able to rescue six US hostages in Iran.

“Studio Six Productions”, was the dummy studio set up by CIA to rescue the six Americans trapped in Iran at the Canadian Ambassador’s home.  The studio titled its new production “Argo” after the ship that Jason and the Argonauts sailed in rescuing the Golden Fleece from the many-headed dragon holding it captive in the sacred garden–much like the situation in Iran.  The script had a Middle Eastern sci-fi theme that glorified Islam.
