Trailer for the film on YouTube:

Join the legendary John Wayne and B-movie ass-kicker John Agar, together with Director Allan Dwan as they storm the beaches of Iwo Jima and tell the story about this great turning point for America and its Allies during the Pacific conflict of World War II.  See the fight, the human conflict, the plight of a soldier and the terrors and brutality of armed conflict.  Told by a fresh perspective considering this movie was made only four years after the war ended.  Great stuff. See this movie. - Phil
