55 Days: The Fall of Saigon (2010)

I remember my mom crying when we were watching the helicopters take the last of the diplomats out of the embassy. Under the terms of the accords, all American combat troops were withdrawn by 29 March 1973. Limited fighting continued, before North Vietnam captured the province of Phuoc Long in December 1974 and started a full-scale offensive, culminating in the Fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975.

Glenn Ford stars as an American paratrooper GI who travels to France after the end of WWII to try and recover a jewel encrusted glove that had been stolen from a country church during the war. His quest leads him to a beautiful young tour guide (Geraldine Brooks), and a Nazi collaborator (George Macready) whom he had fought during the war. The movie was shot mostly on location in France and Monaco.
