Hollywood Portrayals Of Actual Military Figures

Recommended Posts

I know I am late to the party . Almost 2020 !! In Pride of the Marines John Garfield played Barney Ross

who was blinded on Guadalcanal early in the war

Also anyone remember Chuck Conners as Cochise and Ross Martin as Mangus Colorado ?

Did not Jeffery Hunter portray an Anglo American who was raised by Japanese Americans and went on to rescue

many civilians in the Pacific?

Who was the actor who portrayed Manila John Basilone MOH recipient and later KIA on Iwo Jima

Finally, I have not been able to locate the REAL . Sgt. Ernie Bilko. This is a great thread
