A Dying King


An expose of the last King of Iran’s medical story, revealing the sequence of events that led to his downfall, “A Dying King” voices the puzzling mystery that changed the future history of the Middle East and the world.

On January 16,1979, the Shah of Iran Mohamad Reza Pahlavi, left the royal palace, the Peacock Throne and his beloved country Iran for the last time, commencing what became a 19-month odyssey into exile. He wondered hopelessly from Egypt to Morocco, Bahamas, Mexico, the U.S, then Panama and back again to Egypt where he died furtively at the age of 60. His death had profound consequences for the future of the Middle East and the world, yet the untold medical story of the last King of Iran has to date remained a puzzling mystery. By unraveling the secrecy surrounding this critical period of history, beginning from the onset of the Shah’s illness, to the diagnosis/misdiagnosis and maltreatment, “A Dying King” exposes the main causes of the Iranian Revolution, the pursuant 444 days hostage crisis, and the adversarial relations between the U.S and Iran.

Bobak Kalhor Director's Note

The Shah of Iran died on July 27th 1980, 557 days after being forced from his peacock throne into exile. His departure changed the future of the middle east and brought about the advent of political Islam. It is puzzling why the true history of the 1979 Revolution in Iran, America’s involvement in that affair, and the comprehensive story surrounding the fall of the Pahlavi monarchy has yet to be accurately told. It may be owed to the Shah’s own insecurities in keeping importa...
