D-Day: The Sixth of June is a sappy old love-story wrapped up as a macho guy flick, and the movie barely works as either.

Audience Reviews for D-Day: The Sixth of June


Cardboard melodramatics form the backdrop for this war flick that only loosely focuses on the name event. Dana Wynter is fine as is Jerry Paris in a small role, Todd is more an afterthought than a character. Taylor is stiff as usual and O'Brien consumes the scenery and plows over any actor in his way. Forgettable.

This is not the typical War story like most that came out after the BIG ONE WWII. Very little war scenes or fighting in this one. My guess it was made for women who were getting tired of going to see bang bang shoot'em up movies. Its more of a romance story. Robert Taylor who is married falls in love with a women while in station in England, Her fiancée is fighting the war in Africa. So he's a player and so is she. I am sure this upset a few households in America when it came out. In the end Robert is sent to be involved in the landing of D-Day where our ladies fiancée saves Robert Taylor and puts him on a wounded solders ship and sends him back to England, he then turns around and is blown to bits by a land mine. Still its a good classic film. Worth 3 1/2 Stars.
