Ref BS: D Day + 65years (76* d) RE: BS: D Day + 65years 06 Jun 09

It remains a great film. My favorite trivia bit is that Richard Todd, who portrays major John Howard of the British glider troops, was on D-Day a lieutenant who commanded a platoon of paratroopers that fought in support of Howard and his lads at Pegasus Bridge.

I also love the scenes with Piper Bill Millen (portrayed by a man who was pipe major to the Queen Mum) leading the commandos relieving Howard's command. Many of the commando units, ostensibly British, were filled with European Jewish refugees who'd been recruited for their language skills and knowledge of the ground.
