After seeing the sites at France I had to go and buy this film awesome.
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: New
Pleased with this film / DVD
Verified purchase: Yes | Condition: Pre-owned
The film is restored clear and crisp with Dolby 5.1, enjoyable.
The best D-Day film ever, the cast is incredible. The greatest MALE film stars of the 60's appear in this film, English, French, American and German. The film is made in black and white with Dolby 5.1 widescreen. The fact that it is Dolby 5.1 makes a difference in the sound, the bass gives the explosions and bullet sound/blast realism. There are a few mistakes, the most noticeable is Sean Connery falling head to toe deep in the sea, re appearing a few moments later fully dry. The french soldiers taking the port, is exactly as it happened, as the footage has been used in history documentary. I like the feel of the black and white photography, its atmospheric and blends well with actual film footage. The film is restored clear and crisp, and with the dolby 5.1 its really enjoyable.
