If your looking in, catspaw49, the movie The Longest Day is far better without all that noise & gore.
I imagine many movie-goers in '62 appreciated that particular lack of realism since most WWII Veterans wouldn't even speak about what they'd seen anyway so why on Earth would they want to see a bloody Hollywood depiction of the D-Day slaughter?
Oh & BTW ~~ the big question: whats D-day stand for? Doomsday?
My thinking...after the Norman Invasion the Domesday Book spelt death for Anglo Saxtons as the Normandy Invasion (D-Day) spelt death for Germans.
