YMMV: Missing

  • Adaptation Displacement: The film is adapted from a little-known book by Thomas Hauser, The Execution of Charles Horman: An American Sacrifice.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Years after the film's release, with the advent of advanced DNA testing, it was determined that the body shipped back to the United States (as seen in the film's final image) was NOT that of Charles Horman.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Frank Fontana and Holtz are two of the Americans captured by the military along with Charlie Horman.
