Prior to the screenings we’ll email a YouTube recorded analysis and review of each film, including: historical context, plot summary, things to look for, accuracy, etc. Therefore, you can learn more about the films before and/or after you watch them.

During the programs you are invited to discuss Normandy, D-Day, World War II, and the film with your fellow participants via Zoom.

Please note that the programs are only available for viewing with us on the dates above, they will not be recorded, but they may be repeated someday.

However, you are also able to watch any of the segments on your own via various media outlets such as YouTube, Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc. ($$$ probably required).

__________________

The Longest Day is a 1962 American epic war film, shot in black and white and based on Cornelius Ryan's 1959 non-fiction book of the same name about the D-Day landings at Normandy on June 6, 1944. The film was produced by Darryl F. Zanuck, who paid author Ryan $175,000 for the film rights. It was directed by Ken Annakin, Andrew Marton and Bernhard Wicki.

The Longest Day features a large international ensemble cast including John Wayne, Kenneth More, Richard Todd, Robert Mitchum, Richard Burton, Steve Forrest, Sean Connery, Henry Fonda, Red Buttons, Peter Lawford, Eddie Albert, Jeffrey Hunter, Stuart Whitman, Tom Tryon, Rod Steiger, Leo Genn, Gert Fröbe, Irina Demick, Bourvil, Curd Jürgens, George Segal, Robert Wagner, Paul Anka, and Arletty.

The film employed several Axis and Allied military consultants who had been actual participants on D-Day, and many had their roles re-enacted in the film.

The film won two Academy Awards and was nominated for three others.
