I always think of this scene when I picture the NECESSARY epiphany that conservatives and teagaggers MUST have some day, SOON, when they realize that are BETRAYING the hopes and dreams of everything our forefathers created by wresting this country from hereditary and economic, corporate royalty by being so willingly and EASILY BAMBOOZLED by corporate supremacist kochroach teabaggers. In this, US Navy Commander Shears (William Holden), good guy (liberal in this parable) dies before Lieutenant Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness), useful idiot (dumbass teagagger in this story), suffering from Stockholm syndrome and hubris, has been putting forward the interests of the bad guys, the japanese (the conservative enemies of freedom in this tale of teabaggery too late redeemed). I know! It's a perfect metaphor for teabaggery. Holden's death shocks Colonel Nicholson out of his delusion that helping the bad guys is in HIS interest. The wave of the "what have I done" epiphany is EXACTLY what I'm waiting to see in teagagger nation. Priceless.
