  • Sands of Iwo Jima

    1949. With John Wayne, John Agar, Adele Mara, Forrest Tucker. Dwan’s most famous film is his and Republic’s most expensive spectacle, and one of Wayne’s most iconic roles. Wayne was nominated for an Oscar (a nomination he should have gotten the same year for John Ford’s She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, the performance that prompted Ford to the surprised realization that “the sonofabitch can act.”) Anyway, lock and load 108 min.
