The Longest Day


The Longest Day


On June 6, 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 & 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 battles in history. Winner of two Oscars? (Special Effects and Cinematography), The Longest Day ranks as one of Hollywood's truly great war films.
