"Best All Time WW2 Movie"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I grew up on War movies and I remember seeing this and liking it so much that I always made sure that I stayed up to watch it. I remember watching it in both Black and White and in Technie-Colour.

This is the best portrayal of the Normandy landings, even better than Saving Private Ryan.

My children will grow up seeing this and want them to experience a true war movie, than the current Hollywood theatrical blockbusters out there.

Description

"A solid and stunning war epic"-Variety.

One June 6th 1944, the Allied Invasion of France marked the beginning of the end of Nazi domination over Europe. The attack involved 3,000,000 men, 11,000 planes and 4,000 ships, comprising the largest armada the world has ever seen.

Presented in its original black and white version, THE LONGEST DAY is a vivid, hour-by-hour re-creation of this historic event. Featuring a stellar international cast, and told from the perspectives of both sides, it is a fascinating look at the massive preparations, mistakes and random events that determined the outcome of one of the biggest battles in history.

Winner of two Oscars (Special Effects and Cinematography), THE LONGEST DAY ranks as one of Hollywoods truly great war films.

Review

After seeing Saving Private Ryan, this epic tale about the Normandy invasion will look sanitized. But in its re-creation of events leading to the epochal battle, the film is captivating and grand, and the parade of famous actors who cross the screen naturally give the already charged action even more of a boost. Three directors worked on it: Ken Annakin (Battle of the Bulge), Andrew Marton (Crack in the World), and Bernhard Wicki (this film being his only credit). --Tom Keogh
