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.

Was very surprised to see this side of Tony Curtis' acting ablity...Excellent
This movie "The Outsider" was a pleasant surprise from the moment it started, until the very end of it. I thought that Tony Curtis was supurb as "Ira Hayes"...a part I feel should have won him an Acadamy Award Nomation and/or an Oscar. Tony Curtis was able to give the viewer great insight of the pain felt by this misguided Hero. Also, the raising of the flag on Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima looked so real...and gave me such a powerful patriotic feeling. This movie does not come around to view very often...and my one wish is that it would be shown more. It was one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time.
