The 1991 film “Not Without My Daughter” _ the true story of an American women fleeing Iran with her young daughter, angered Iranians who accused it of casting Iranians as dirty, boorish and cruel, obsessed with Islam and misogynist attitudes toward women.

Iran’s state-run film industry boycotted this year’s Oscars in the wake of an Internet video clip made in the U.S. denigrating the Prophet Muhammad that set off protests across the Muslim world.

The affair wasn’t related to “Argo.”
