Movie-A-Day #157: The Longest Day (1962).

June 6, 2011

On June 6, 1944 – D-Day – Allied forces stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, to push back the occupying German forces and gain a foothold to begin the push that would eventually end World War II in Europe. The losses were heavy, but it was the Greatest Generation’s greatest moment. We’ve already visited the treatment of D-Day in “Saving Private Ryan” for Memorial Day, but “The Longest Day” handles it well too.
