On June 6th 1944, the Allied Invasion of France marked the beginning of the end of Nazi domination over Europe. The attack involved 3,000,000 men, 11,000 planes and 4,000 ships, comprising the largest armada the world has ever seen. Presented in its original black and white version, The Longest Day is a vivid, hour-by-hour re-creation of this historic event. Featuring a stellar international cast, and told from the perspectives of both sides, it is a fascinating look at the massive preparations, mistakes and random events that determined the outcome of one of the biggest battles in history. Winner of two Oscars (Special Effects and Cinematography), The Longest Day ranks as one of Hollywoods truly great war films.
When carefree playboy (John Payne) joins the Marine Corps, he tests the skill and patience of the veteran sergeant (Randolph Scott) who tries to whip him into a real Marine.
