Movie in the Park January 2012
Contact: Benjamin Hayes, 671-333-4051
War in the Pacific National Historical Park invites the public for a special Movie in the Park program on Saturday, January 28 at 6 p.m.
Back by popular demand; join us for an outdoor screening of the classic "No Man is an Island," which dramatically portrays the suspenseful struggle of U.S. Navy Radioman George Tweed. The film highlights the relationship built between Chamorro families and Tweed, the lone American survivor on Guam during the Japanese occupation. To many, Tweed became a symbol that America would return, but to others, the punishments and executions inflicted on Chamorros who helped him caused enmity and indignation. Was protecting Tweed worth the sacrifice?
