There are so many stars in The Longest Day that none are mentioned on the front or back Dvd covers. I suppose if they listed them all there would be no room for any pictures. Burton, Wayne, Todd, Mitchum, Fonda... But it works. The biggest day in the history of the 20th century needs the biggest names Hollywood had at its disposal at the time ... UK Dvd Gallery added.

    Ordinary politicians sat in smoke-filled rooms dictating orders. Extraordinary men paid with their lives on the beaches in Northern France for everyone's right to freedom. ~ PAUL PAGE

1962, 171 MINS, BW, US

An account of the events surrounding the Allied invasion of the beaches of Normandy during D-Day, June 1944. Seen from every angle, including that of the Germans, who were totally overwhelmed by the size of the Allied armies thrown against them. 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 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 Hollywood's truly great war flms.

The old fashioned ways of paying are a bit more of a hassle for you but mean I can offer this item for the lowest price I possibly can. Card payments are very expensive so I prefer the old fashioned methods of payment. And let's face it, the good old fashioned cheque - well nothing is more secure than that.
