Thank D.K. These documentary shows how much these islamic bastard destroyed our beautiful country. Shame on those who are still hesitating about our shah and the progress he made to the history of Iran. They are NOT Iranians, I believe.

The country is unrecognizable now.  Amazing how much a place can change in such a relatively short amount of time.

But then I saw the bottle of soda on the cloth and started wondering if it was a "coke or Pepsi"?

Thank you Mr. Kadivar for all the documentaries and films from the pre-revolution Iran, you have presented in this website. In mid 1970's a Yale professor and his family came to Iran for vacation. They visited Tehran, Isfahan, Shiraz, and Persepolis. They were very impressed by the beauty and progress in Iran. He told us that he has visited all the countries in the Middle East, South Asia, and North Africa including Turkey and Egypt. None of them was as advanced as Iran.The only thing that he did not like was traffic. He said if he had to live in Iran, he could not drive, because there were too many cars on the road, the drivers drive fast, and do not follow the rules.There were fewer accidents than he expected because as he explained, it looked like all the drivers were connected by a wireless computer. They go so close, but before they clash, one car stops, and the other car passes!

That was in 1975. I wonder what he would say about the traffic of Tehran, if he comes back today!
