"Studio Six Productions" Portfolio

Artifact Details

Argo was a movie that CIA’s dummy studio “Studio Six Productions” used as a cover to rescue captives in Iran.

To rescue six American diplomats who evaded capture during the seizure of the United States embassy in Tehran, Iran, on 4 November 1979, CIA technical specialists created a fake movie-production company in Hollywood and delivered disguises and documents that made possible the diplomats’ escape from Iran in 1980.

The team set up “Studio Six Productions” and titled its new production “Argo.”

The company’s portfolio includes introduction and publicity documents.
