Shame on Hollywood
22 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Hollywood butchered this story....but that is not really a surprise. Add to that the way the US Govt treated the families that actually helped Tweed after the war, and still treat them to this day, just adds insult to injury. I met and became friends with some of those families when I was stationed on Guam, learned the true story firsthand and know they hate this film. IMHO,this move should only be shown with a disclaimer that it is 99% BS. Aside from the facts that WWII did happen, there is an Island of Guam, Tweed was in the Navy and was rescued by submarine, people died helping Tweed survive, there ain't much else accurate with this movie. Tho Mr Arturo did receive the Medal of Freedom from the US Govt for his part in this story, they really shafted him after WWII, and disrespect his family to this day. Such a shame the true story has never been told.
