Movie Argo has Campbellsville, KY connection
By Betty J. Gorin, Campbellsville, KY
From Larry Smith, Operations Manager, The Big Dawg 99.8 FM
The movie Argo is one for the productions being considered for awards from the Academy this weekend. The movie has a Campbellsville connection.
Tony Mendez was an agen in the CIA and had the idea on how to rescue 8 American hostages who were hiding in the Canadian Embassy in the Iran Hostage Crisis. Tony is married to Jonna Hiestand, a physician and former mayor of Campbellsville. She, too, was a CIA Agent.
Tony has received the highest honor the CIA can give and Jonna and he are both on the Board of the Spy Museum in Washington, DC. Jonna Hiestand was Chief of Disguise at the CIA before she retired. The Mendezes come to Campbellsville about once a year to visit relatives. Tony loves to play golf at our Country Club. - Betty Jane Gorin
