In exchange for a favourable portrayal that stimulated recruiting and gave an impressive view to the public and Congress (United States Congress), the Marines provided uniformed extras, locations, equipment, and technical advisers that provided their expertise to the producers. In 1926 MGM's (Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) ''Tell It to the Marines'' and Fox's (20th Century Fox) ''What Price Glory? (What Price Glory? (1926 film))'' directed by Raoul Walsh nearly led to a court battle to see whether one studio could copyright the Marines to prevent other films from being made. Allan Dwan's ''Sands of Iwo Jima'', starring John Wayne, is frequently cited as one of the most influential Marine films. Over the years, Camp Pendleton (Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton) was dressed up to represent Central American nations, China, Pacific islands, New Zealand, and Joseph H. Lewis (Joseph H. Lewis (director))'s ''Retreat, Hell!'' had the base covered in studio snow with their hills and roads painted white. Camp Pendleton later doubled as Vietnam in Marshall Thompson's ''To the Shores of Hell''. When filming ''Battle Cry (film)'' at the base in 1954, Raoul Walsh's Marine technical adviser said that he had joined the Corps after seeing ''What Price Glory?''. United States Marine Corps Recruit Training was also depicted in Jack Webb's ''The D.I. (The D.I. (film))'' and Stanley Kubrick's ''Full Metal Jacket'' that led to more enlistments to the Corps. Most recently, the Gulf (Gulf War) and Iraq (Iraq War) wars have become the subject of controversial films such as ''Jarhead (Jarhead (film))'' and ''Generation Kill (Generation Kill (TV series))''. Certain parasitic liver diseases (parasitic disease) may be risk factors as well. Colonization with the liver flukes ''Opisthorchis viverrini'' (found in Thailand, Laos, and Malaysia) or ''Clonorchis sinensis'' (found in Japan, Korea, and Vietnam) has been associated with the development of cholangiocarcinoma.

'''Vietnam''' ( Its capital city has been Hanoi since the reunification of North (North Vietnam) and South Vietnam in 1976.
Vietnam was part of Imperial China for over a millennium, from 111 BC to 938 AD. The Vietnamese became independent from Imperial China (Imperial Chinese) in AD 938, following the Vietnamese victory in the Battle of Bạch Đằng River (Battle of Bạch Đằng River (938)). Successive Vietnamese royal dynasties (List of Vietnamese monarchs) flourished as the nation expanded geographically and politically into Southeast Asia, until the Indochina Peninsula was colonized by the French (French Indochina) in the mid-19th century. Following a Japanese occupation (Japanese invasion of French Indochina) in the 1940s, the Vietnamese fought French rule in the First Indochina War, eventually expelling the French in 1954. Thereafter, Vietnam was divided politically into two rival states, North and South Vietnam. Conflict between the two sides intensified, with heavy intervention from the United States, in what is known as the Vietnam War. The war ended with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975.
Vietnam was then unified under a communist (Communism) government but remained impoverished and politically isolated. In 1986, the government initiated a series of economic and political reforms (Doi Moi) which began Vietnam's path towards integration into the world economy. Its successful economic reforms resulted in its joining the World Trade Organization in 2007.
However, regardless of the advancements that have been made in recent years, the country still experiences high levels of income inequality, disparities in access to healthcare, and a lack of gender equality.
