Flaming liberal: Actor-director Clint Eastwood on the set of Flags of Our Fathers, about the 1945 battle of Iwo Jima and Native American marine Ira Hayes

MORE than 50 years after he first appeared in Hollywood as a bright young Republican, Clint Eastwood has been attacked by his old allies as a bleeding heart liberal for his latest film, Flags of Our Fathers.

The $US75 million ($100 million) film, which opened in 1800 cinemas in the US at the weekend, focuses not only on the World War II battle of Iwo Jima but also on the fate of a Native American soldier who, Eastwood suggests, was maltreated by the military after the war.

Flags of Our Fathers, which stars Billy Elliot actor Jamie Bell, tells the grim story of the month-long battle early in 1945 in which nearly 30,000 soldiers died.more
