(See my other WWII related posts) – I watched one of my favorite movies set in WWII again a few nights ago – “The Longest Day“. Even though this 1962 film was shot in black & white it is still very good. It scored a 7.8/10 on IMDB and was nominated for five 1963 Academy Awards, winning two.

Today I came across the very recent (June 2019) video above that talks about some behind the scene facts about the movie. I thought they were good enough to share.


If you are interested in the WWII era of history, you may find these two pages of mine of interest. 

The  World War II Sources” page is a collection of more than 310 links to museums, memorials, websites, Facebook pages, Twitter feeds and other sources with information on the World War II era in history.

The “World War II Timeline” page shows events leading up to WWII, as well as during the war. Events are broken down into the Pacific and European Theaters by date.
