The Timeline

Remembering Super Bowl XV and its connection to the Iran Hostage Crisis 40 years later

Super Bowl LV marks 40 years since the Iran hostage crisis ended and the released American prisoners were honored at Super Bowl XV in New Orleans. That event was chronicled in the 2015 NFL / Timeline film America's Game and the Iran Hostage Crisis, and the upcoming anniversary offers a chance to revisit the story and film in this Super Bowl feature.
