Thanks for jogging my dusty memory Bill. Now I remember the film and Eddie's photo was published by Life magazine as I remember.

The Iwo flag raising was also filmed. That was truly an iconic moment just in itself. From the accounts of the moment that have been written, the entire battle stopped for a couple moments.

I think it interesting that in both incidents, a still photograph could have been made from the film footage that showed the same picture. But the most memorable image in both cases came from a single photographer with a single click of the shutter.
