"For decades, (Eastwood) has exemplified the decency and goodness of spirit in his moviemaking," MPAA Chairman Dan Glickman commented. "His two acclaimed movies about World War II's infamous battle at Iwo Jima present a remarkable work of looking at both sides of a moment in history and providing a commentary on its impact in the lives of those who experienced it. These films exemplify the true power of movies to tell human stories and inspire national conversation."
