Movie Info

Many Americans are familiar with the iconic image of American marines raising the U.S. flag at Iwo Jima on Mount Suribachi in 1945. However, most probably don't know that there were two U.S. flag raisings that day near the conclusion of 36 days of fighting. Originally telecast on A&E, this documentary explains that the image most of us are familiar with, and that was made into the famous statue, was actually the second time the U.S. flag went up that day. Hosted by Academy award-winning actor and ex-Marine Gene Hackman, this program tells the story of both flag raisings and features interviews with two dozen people, as well as never-before-televised color battle footage, some of it graphically violent.more
