Goofs

Technical Sergeant Boyle, the war bond tour guide, wears no ribbons or service stripes on his uniform. But since he is an older Marine who has been in the Marine Corps for a long time, he should be wearing at least a few ribbons, plus one service stripe for each four years of Marine service.

Good. Not a war movie.
29 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the sad and touching story of Ira Hayes, with a fine acting job by Tony Curtis. Do not expect action scenes with battles and heroics. There is only a brief section that takes place on Iwo Jima;the rest is drama. Some may argue about this or that point of historical accuracy-- with good reason probably--but when all that is done, we're left with just a good drama about a young man who could not cope with the bizarre role of 'national hero' that fate forced upon him. The story is about how events outside his control affected his relationships with friends, family, his community, comrades and his country. We wish life could have turned out better for such a decent man.
