The new film "Argo," directed by and starring Ben Affleck, is getting plenty of Oscar buzz.
It's based on an incredible true story of six American embassy workers who escaped capture during the Iranian Revolution in 1979. During the Iranian hostage crisis, 52 Americans were held for 444 days. It started in the Carter administration and ended the day Ronald Reagan took office. The movie documents the little known covert CIA operation that got them out.
This morning on "Early Start," Alina Cho shares her exclusive interview with the "real" embassy workers on whom the film was based.
