Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 06/03/1994
"...Incredible scope and sweep....Fast-moving, dramatically on-target, and searingly realistic..." -- Rating: B+
USA Today - 11/05/1999
"...The all-star DAY holds up as a respectable portrayal of the event..."
Total Film - 07/01/2003
"...John Sturges' robust POW actioner follows the template he set with THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN... .It's turns from Dickie Attenborough and David McCallum that provide the heart..."
Uncut - 07/01/2004
"This stunningly realised 1962 restaging of D-Day is the last great war epic."
Sight and Sound - 08/01/2004
"[I]t's hard not to admire the logistical ingenuity with which Darryl Zanuck put together a production of this size."
Widescreen Review - 06/01/2006
"THE LONGEST DAY features a massive all-star cast in its re-creation of the Allied invasion at Normandy Beach during World War II."
USA Today - 06/03/2004
"[This epic] takes a comprehensive, quasi- documentary-style look at the Battle of Normandy, dramatically depicting the invasion from the perspectives of both Allied and German forces."

Description by

The triumph and tragedy of the World War II heroes who stormed Normandy Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944, are immortalized in this 1962 Oscar winner for Best Cinematography (Black-and-White) and Best Special Effects.

Seen through the eyes of Allied generals, foot soldiers, strategists and paratroopers, The Longest Day recounts the largest and greatest military mission of all time. In a battle that would change the course of history, 5,000 ships unloaded over 3 million men on the beaches of France, and the Allies gained a valuable foothold on enemy territory at an incalculable cost. This massive production required five directors and featured an international cast of thousands, including John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda, Eddie Albert, Richard Burton, Sean Connery, Peter Lawford, Rod Steiger, Stuart Whitman, Robert Ryan, Edmond O'Brien, Curt Jurgens and more!
