Letters from Iwo Jima Wins Oscar for Sound Editing
The Academy Award of Merit for Best Sound Editing is an award granted to a film exhibiting the finest or most aesthetic sound editing or sound design. This year at the 79th Academy Awards that honor went to Alan Robert Murray and Bub Asman for the film Letters from Iwo Jima. The film was also nominated for, but did not win three other categories including the coveted titles of Best Picture and Best Director.
WW2DB has a collection containing over 150 photographs on the Battle of Iwo Jima, including many color photographs. This collection is growing larger steadily as well. If you are interested in seeing some visuals that inspired Letters from Iwo Jima as well as its sister film Flags of Our Fathers, please be sure to check it out.

The release date of the DVD is 6 Feb 2007.
