Other mistake: When Stryker is killed at the end, it shows him lying on his back. Then, it cuts to a shot that shows the name on the back of his uniform. Who turned him over? (01:48:06)
Sands of Iwo Jima (1949)
Directed by: Allan Dwan
Starring: John Wayne, John Agar, Adele Mara, Forrest Tucker
Factual error: After being under bombardment for several days, don't you think it was polite of the Japanese to shave and put on clean uniforms for the invasion?
Factual error: During the scene where Stryker is fighting with Forrest Tucker, an officers staff car pulls up. The car appears to be a 1946 or later Dodge or Plymouth, which was not yet manufactured.
Sgt. Stryker: You gotta learn right and you gotta learn fast. And any man that doesn't want to cooperate, I'll make him wish he had never been born.
