Authentic 3-hour WWII D-Day drama; no graphic violence.

Though the film makes a few egregious historical changes for dramatic effect, The Longest Day pretty much lives and dies by its scale. [Blu-Ray]
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Produced by Zanuck, this WWII epic is the joint effort of 3 directors, no less than 5 writers, and numerous stars, including John Wayne.

Longest film imaginable at three-hours, which proves to be a hinderance.

The longest movie; the stunt of too many great actors in small roles wears thin. Saving Private Ryan did it better and in much less time.

It is, and will most likely always remain, the definitve D-Day picture.

A far cry from the gore-drenched Saving Private Ryan, legendary producer Darryl F. Zanuck's heartfelt recreation of the D-Day landings is, in its own way, every bit as memorable.

Aside from a great war tale, Day also marks what must be the only film where you can see John Wayne, Henry Fonda, Fabián, Sal Mineo, Eddie Albert, Red Buttons, Peter Lawford, and Sean Connery all fighting the same war.
