Come to think of it I have seen Heroes of the East too. That's an entertaining one.

Unsung Heroes -this is a film series from North Korea that is very heavily influenced by James Bond and espionage films (which were a favorite of Kim Jong Il). The first two movies revolve around a Korean journalist working in Europe who returns to South Korea to see American soldiers stationed in his country. He is asked by a North Korean agent to spy for the DPRK and he gets involved in the world of espionage. This movie is set around the Korean War but the foreign cars used are all 1970s American and British cars. The audience probably wouldn't know the difference though. Shots of England seem to stand in for the outside world too. The best scene is in the second movie where the US soldiers make a Korean woman in a car and one with a gun face off in a deadly opstical course in a scene reminiscent of the Connery Bond films. Interesting films worth a look.

Where does one get a look?  I noticed that youtube has them but they don't appear to have subtitles - or are they very low in the frame?

The entire series is up on YouTube without subtitles but I followed along with my books on the series and various websites that had the film summaries. Like most propaganda films it is not difficult to follow. The acting and dialogue are very "obvious" with what they are trying to communicate (for example when it shows pictures of the main character in Japanese uniform under the sun and he is speaking in a sad voice he is reflecting on his forced service in the Pacific during the Japanese occupation, when it shows a montage of US soldiers and he is speaking in a hushed voice he is angry at the US). The books I have did help a lot with understanding it though. I have Jenkins autobiography from when he returned to the US and some other books on NK film.
