 March 7, 1996-Vol27n21: Letters
Ngor believed he had been chosen by fate or "the gods" as an historical witness.
He was a powerful influence on the filmmakers to elevate the film higher than its war-time buddies context and turn it into a searing indictment of American foreign policy from 1969 to 1975 and the brutality of the Khmer Rouge that followed.
Dr. Ngor was a gentle, humorous and generous man. In 1990, he agreed to join Dith Pran in Buffalo for a conference called "Children of Crisis" that was co-sponsored by UB and the Buffalo Public Schools.

Ngor spent four years as a slave laborer, subjected to endless persecution and torture.
For Ngor, acting was always secondary to tireless fund-raising efforts on behalf of his fellow Cambodians, and his dogged determination to bring his Khmer Rouge persecutors to justice.
After enduring so much hardship and heartbreak, Ngor's death in 1996 was particularly tragic: he was murdered while standing next to his car in the garage of his Los Angeles home.

Ngor, who survived the mass killings of the Khmer Rouge in the 1970s but lost his wife when she died during childbirth, won an Academy Award for his performance in the 1984 film "The Killing Fields" about the Khmer Rouge atrocities.
Morrow also said prosecutors misled the jury by telling them Ngor was murdered because he would not surrender a locket containing the only picture he had of his late wife.
The judges ruled that Ngor's ordeal in the 1970s was relevant to the case because it helped explain why he would be reluctant to turn over the locket to gang members.

Ngor was honored for the role, his first, as the year’s Best Supporting Actor and went on to appear in 16 more films.
Hum, the court found, played on jurors’ sympathies by emphasizing Ngor’s life story, argued contrary to the facts when he claimed that the picture in the locket was the only one Ngor had of his wife, and “fictionalized” an account of the struggle over the locket.

Walsh also chided prosecutors for urging the jury to convict Tan based on Ngor's "laudable life or the injustice of the victim's prior suffering" under the Khmer Rouge.

Ngor spent four years as a "war slave" under the Khmer Rouge, experiencing severe torture, losing most of his family and posing as a former cab driver when in fact he had been a doctor.
This is more than a recounting of his ordeal, however; Ngor goes a long way toward explaining why a land known for its shy and gentle people became the site of mass killings that reached genocidal proportions.
Ngor also told not only the *deeply* disturbing details of his life as a war slave, but also the difficulties of starting a new life in America.

Hun Sen, CPP leader and co--Prime Minister, suggested that Ngor's death was a "political murder," an act of intimidation against the government.
Indeed, the accolades Ngor won for The Killing Fields paid tribute not only to his acting but also to his bravery in revealing--and reliving--the brutalities of the Khmer Rouge's 1975-79 reign of terror.

 BBC - h2g2 - Dr Haing S Ngor and the Killing Fields
This harrowing film was nominated for seven Oscars, and won two, one of which, the Oscar for 'Best Supporting Actor', was awarded to Dr Haing S Ngor for his portrayal of Dith Pran.
This Oscar was all the more astonishing when one considers the fact that Haing was not a trained actor; in fact, he was an escapee of the Cambodian revolution himself, and his story is even more harrowing and difficult to understand than that of the character he played.
On the 25 February, 1996, Dr Haing S Ngor was gunned down in front of the Chinatown apartment he used in Los Angeles.

Kathy E <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> writes: One of three juries in the murder case of Oscar-winning actor Haing Ngor has reached a verdict, the judge said Thursday, but the decision was kept secret while the two other panels continued to deliberate.
Ngor, 55, a doctor, came to the United States in 1980 and won the Academy Award in 1984 for ``The Killing Fields.'' His acting drew on his experiences as a survivor of torture in his native Cambodia.
When Ngor was slain, many speculated that he was a victim of political retribution by the Khmer Rouge.

 SAN FRANCISCO / Haing Ngor verdicts upheld
Ngor, a physician who survived the mass slaughter by Cambodia's Khmer Rouge government in the 1970s, was shot to death in his car.
Testimony by Ngor's niece indicated that the photo in the locket was the only remaining picture of Ngor's wife, made from a negative that was also used to produce the apartment photo, said Judge Stephen Trott.
Regardless of the terminology, he said, the prosecutor could reasonably argue that the locket had great value for Ngor, that he would have resisted a robber's attempt to take it and that his personal story was thus relevant to the case.

What Dr. Ngor did bring to the role though, was his real life experience under the horrendous rule of the Khmer Rouge.

Ngor's description of life under the Khmer Rouge makes every movie made on the subject a very polite first try.
Ngor's life story is not a singular experience - everyone who survived the killing fields has a story to tell - but perhaps his was noted more than others' because of his Hollywood fame.
