-- Tragic fact-based story of World War II Marine Ira Hayes (Tony Curtis), a Pima Indian from Arizona who achieved fame as one of the six men who raised the American flag on Mount Suribachi during the battle for Iwo Jima, then fled the unwanted role of celebrity by becoming an alcoholic until his death in 1955. Under Delbert Mann's direction, Curtis gives a credibly restrained performance as the troubled Native American who wants to be accepted in both the white and Indian cultures but finds he fits in neither. Wartime violence and alcoholic excess. (A-II) (br)
