Whenever possible, the original locations were utilized, and an all-star international cast impersonates the people involved, from high-ranking officials to ordinary GIs.

Overview

The Longest Day is a mammoth, all-star re-creation of the D-Day invasion, personally orchestrated by Darryl F. Zanuck. Whenever possible, the original locations were utilized, and an all-star international cast impersonates the people involved, from high-ranking officials to ordinary GIs. Each actor speaks in his or her native language with subtitles translating for the benefit of the audience alternate "takes" were made of each scene with the foreign actors speaking English, but these were seen only during the first network telecast of the film in 1972. The stars are listed alphabetically, with the exception of John Wayne, who as Lt. Colonel Vandervoort gets separate billing. Others in the huge cast include Eddie Albert, Jean-Louis Barrault, Richard Burton, Red Buttons, Sean Connery, Henry Fonda, Gert Frobe, Curt Jurgens, Peter Lawford, Robert Mitchum, Kenneth More, Edmond O'Brien, Robert Ryan, Jean Servais, Rod Steiger and Robert Wagner. Paul Anka, who wrote the film's title song, shows up as an Army private. Scenes include the Allies parachuting into Ste. Mere Englise, where the paratroopers were mowed down by German bullets; a real-life sequence wherein the German and Allied troops unwittingly march side by side in the dark of night; and a spectacular three-minute overhead shot of the troops fighting and dying in the streets of Quistreham. The last major black-and-white road-show attraction, The Longest Day made millions, enough to recoup some of the cost of 20th Century Fox's concurrently produced Cleopatra.

    A film that all movie buffs must see

    For a war movie, with several directors going at it - Ken Annakin, Andrew Marton, Bernhard Wicki - it would seem that the movie would be a big mess. It is not. It is a fascinating epic of a movie with captivating sequences. With these directors, we get a fresh perspective on the fighting during the D-Day invasion.<BR/><BR/>The movie was wonderfully written by Cornelius Ryan, with additional episodes written by Romain Gary, James Jones, David Pursall and Jack Seddon,<BR/><BR/>Actors John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda and Robert Ryan are wonderful in their respective roles. Many other actors who contributed their talents to this movie are also great.

    Great World War Two movie

    If you like John Wayne, and war movies, this is the one for you. An incredible D-Day epic that explores just what happened on that day. A great movie buy! I recommend this to ANYONE

    Good,But Not Great

    I bought "The Longest Day" as an addition to my WWII movie collection, specifically to see how it measured up to "Tora, Tora, Tora", which in my opinion is a great historical movie. The storyline is solid history, but historical mistakes such as British and American paratroopers jumping out of British Lancaster bombers (paratroopers of both countries exclusively used Douglas C47's to get them to their drop zones) and the use of landing craft in the movie that were not in use until the 1950's make it seem like the producer and director did not really care about historical accuracy. The performances of most of the big-name actors are pretty solid, although there are scenes where it seems like the character actors are "hamming it up" trying to act like the "typical American soldier". These occasions will be obvious to anybody watching the movie. I was impressed with the Germans actually speaking German, not British actors speaking the Queen's English in German uniforms. The main complaint with these scenes is that the English subtitles are either too small to read without being a few feet away from the TV or the white letters are invisible against light colored backgrounds (the movie is in black-and-white). All in all, "The Longest Day" is an OK movie, but it could have been a great movie if a little more time and care had been taken during it's filming and editing.

    A Very Realistic Film about an Important Happening

    This can give a person what the invasion of Normandy France was like. Vehicles are very ethantic and understanding the problems that people had to face during a time of war in Europe.

    The actors help make the film give it a look of how things were lead. This DVD also gives it a much clear look.
