二战“胜利之吻”男主角与世长辞
来源:21英语网    日期: 2014-03-18

美国时间1945年8月14日,日本宣布无条件投降,一名美国水兵为庆祝胜利在纽约时代广场忘情亲吻了一名陌生女护士。这一浪漫瞬间正巧被摄影师拍下,成为象征二战结束的经典之作。

遗憾的是,照片中的男主角麦克达菲于3月9日在得克萨斯州病逝,享年86岁。

由于当年拍照时男女主角都没有留下姓名,男主角麦克达菲的身份直到6年前才得到确认。为了找到他,休斯顿警局的一位法医曾进行多次测试。她甚至要求当时80岁的麦克达菲怀抱枕头模仿当年的亲吻动作,并拍下照片认真比对,最后才确认了麦克达菲的身份。

The US man renowned for claiming he was the "kissing sailor" in an iconic World War Two-era image has died aged 86. Glenn McDuffie's daughter Glenda Bell said he died in a nursing home in Dallas, Texas on March 9.

Mr McDuffie had long claimed to be the US sailor in the famous image taken by a Life magazine photographer during V-J Day celebrations on August 14, 1945.

The image, which shows the soldier passionately kissing a nurse in New York's Times Square, has come to represent the moment victory was declared over Japan. Mr McDuffie, who would have been 18 at the time, said he acted on an impulse after he was told Japan had surrendered.

The mystery was made harder to crack by the fact photographer Alfred Eisenstaedt did not ask the names of the kissing couple at the time. It was just six years ago that Mr McDuffie's identity was verified following intensive tests carried out by Houston Police Department forensic artist Lois Gibson.

Ms Gibson, who is in the 2005 Guinness Book of World Records for helping police identify more suspects than any other forensic artist, said she took around 100 pictures of the then-80-year-old navy veteran using a pillow to pose as he did in the photograph.
