Sands of Iwo Jima (1949) de Allan Dwan
SANDS OF IWO JIMA _ John Wayne catapulted from Hollywood leading man to All-American hero with his Oscar-nominated performance as Sgt. Sryker, a hard-nosed Marine sergeant who must mold a company of raw recruits into a combat-ready fighting machine. Feared by many and hated by all, Stryker's training is soon put to the test in a full-scale assault against the Japanese on Iwo Jima - an infamous battle that will live forever in one of cinema's most famous scenes, the flag-raising on Mt. Suribachi.

Excelente filme para rever agora que Clint Eastwood filmou a revisão deste mito americano nos recentes Letters from Iwo Jima e Flags of Our Fathers.
