Another Film that i thought needed to be on the Index. a Film that personally enjoy very much. I particularly enjoyed the french ressistance scene's the most.

I agree with you totally Atlas2112! It's one of my favorite films of all time. It's directed and acted wonderfully! Out of all the great performances by many of the great actors of that era, I'd have to say Robert Mitchum stood out for me the most. He was just so damn cool in the minimum screentime he had.

Probably because of his awesome line: "There's only two kinds of men that are gonna stay on this beach; those that are dead and those that are gonna die."


I have the SE DVD which I haven't seen in a while. Should watch it again.

Yeah, you're absolutely right Peacemaker. I love that line! You should definitely watch it as soon as you can again.

That line was reprhased in Speilberg's 1998 film "Saving Private Ryan".

An obvious reference to The Longest Day since the line was uttered during the Omaha Beach take over.

I believe the line in Saving Private Ryan was ...

"There are two kinds of men on this beach, the dead and the dying".

don't quote me though.

I think it was Tom Hanks saying "You stay here, you're dead men!"

I saw this movie when I was like ten, don't remember it too well. Liked it at the time, but I don't know if I would now.

I remember in 8th grade when a cluster of my grade set up in this enlarged class room with rows of chairs set out, set up a screen and projector like a movie theatre, and we were learning about World War II, and the movie we were going to watch (to my delight) was The Longest Day. Sadly alot of people thought it was boring, and my math teacher was filling in some backround info since he knows a lot about World War II, and some people were asking me stuff since I also know a lot about the war.

I was pretty sure every one rather watch Saving Private Ryan, but the majority of the class couldn't get permission from the parents to watch an R rated movie, talk about sheltering.

HAHAHA, no, I'm just curious what you think of it. You need to have it refreshed in your memory.

I'm pretty certain it was another character who said the line I mentioned.

The Longest Day (1962) Too long, too hollywoodish (John Wayne and Robert Mitchum are too johnwaynish) but with some good moments, especially in the second half. I saw it in a theatre in the mid sixties, could watch it again sometime in the next 40 years.  7\10

Yes, the movie's '62 and not '64. Gay Patrick Stuart's got some 'splainin' to do.
