The Longest Day / THE LONGEST DAY
It Happened Yesterday

The Longest Day relates the first 24 hours of a crucial episode in World War II: the Allied invasion of Normandy on 6 June 1944. Eisenhower gives the order setting powerful warfaring machinery in motion - to the surprise of the Germans who didn't expect the attack on that particular day. The Allies head for the Normandy beaches while paratroopers are dropped inland to take key towns and bridges. Bloody battles on all fronts end with D-Day and victory for the Allies, thus able to advance through France as a result of the positions they had taken.
ANDREW MARTON, KEN ANNAKIN, BERNHARD WICKI Marton (1904-1972) has gained his place in the annals of history as the second unit director of Ben-Hur (1959), Cleopatra (1963), 55 Days at Peking (1964) and The Day of the Jackal (1973). Annakin (1914) for being a solid all-rounder with respect to war films, comedies or Disney aventures like Swiss Family Robinson (1960). Wicki (1919-2000), for Das wunder des Malachias (1961) and Morituri (1965), not to mention the fact that he is an excellent actor.
