Dwan, Allan
Genre: 
Tough-as-nails career Marine Sergeant John Stryker (John Wayne) is greatly disliked by the men of his squad, particularly the combat replacements, for the rigorous training he puts them through. From training to the Battle of Iwo Jima during World War II. Nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Writing and Best Actor. "There are internal wars and interpersonal battles waged between many of his characters across many of [Dwan’s] films. SANDS OF IWO JIMA happens to locate these in one of the decisive events in world history, and is all the more affecting for it." - Jordan Cronk, Slant Magazine
