Can't understand why there's never been a major Hollywood extravaganza on this guy. Everything's already there in no short order: mystery, looks, drama, sex, romance, war- the whole nine yards and then some...

Not that they would get any of it right.

There is a recent movie "Hemingway and Gellhorn" that has battle scenes from the war correspondent days that has action scenes that freeze frame in Capa photos. very interesting footage and effects. BTW Nicole Kidmen as Gellhorn wasn't bad either !

Makes sense on how the picture was made and how the soldier lost his life. Finding it on the auction site may open up other suspicions. But, its timing is as incredible as the image itself.

Just now I have in my hands the book with the others more relevant 936 setup including the last one he did. Just saying...

"the grand old dean of combat photographers"

I don't know that old is the right word, he didn't make it to his 41st birthday.

Wonderful. A treasure. Thank you.

R.Capa can be seen (a heard) here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkDpxuKXFpQ&feature=youtu.be&t=59m50s true, for a couple of seconds. I recommend the documentary ;-)
