I keep thinking of a Vietnam War era film that plays Suzie Q and am I correct in that it's played in Apocalypse Now when the Playboy dancers disembark from a Playboy UH-1 during a USO show?

It's definitely in Apocalypse Now in the USO scene, but I'm not sure it's the CCR version. That song has been done by a lot of bands.

CCR's "Fortunate Son" is in Forrest Gump in the Vietnam scenes.

Run through the Jungle was in the sort-of Vietnam flick Air America. Plus Fortunate Sun is in several Vietnam War-set video games.

Well, this isn't Suzy Q but rather another CCR song played during a Vietnam sequence. I think it's a better fit for a war movie clip, and I like this song better.

Suzie Q was in Apocalypse Now ... it was Flash Cadillac not CCR in that Vietnam movie. All this time I thought it was CCR in the movie.
