Spitfire said:So it was premier night over here, and I've just seen the first part.
I hope it gets better.
The characters did not grab me, the story did not grab me, so whats left?
I'll give it another chance next sunday - and then we'll see.[huh]
Norumbega said:For those who study WWII photographs, that last scene from Ep. 2 was not lost on those who remember it's real archival cousin. It plays off of that iconic photo of the young, weary Marine on the mess decks after returning from what I believe was Tarawa, if I remember correctly, though I could be mistaken.
In the photo his face is dirty, hair disheveled, and his eyes are trained on nothing else but his coffee mug which he clutches with both hands, while sitting alone at a table.
Perhaps someone else here can remember that photo and post it. I couldn't find it.[/QUOTE]
I think this is the photo of young Bob Tuohy you speak of.
Pfc. Faris M. (Bob) Tuohy, 19 holding coffee cup &, along w. his fellow Marines, looking grimy & weary from 2 days & 2 nights of fighting on Eniwetok Atoll during WWII.
