Tony Curtis in Native American make-up
Delbert Mann directs
Sorenson and Hayes holding each other on the battlefield. Touching.
Definitely one of Tony's best performances.
Memorian dedication scene is great.
Kind of a downer ending.
Tony Curtis gives an emotional performance as Ira Hayes, the Native-American soldier who takes part in the flag-raising at Iwo Jima and spirals into alcoholism upon returning from the war. A bit of a downer, but worth seeing for Curtis in an atypical role.
