REVIEWS:





"Just as Cornelius Ryan put into vivid words the sweeping drama of the Normandy invasion in his book, 'The Longest Day,' Darryl F. Zanuck and a large team of associates have made that drama surge again upon the screen in a three-hour film. .... All of the massive organization of that most salient invasion of World War II, all the hardship and bloodiness of it, all the courage and sacrifice involved, are strongly and stalwartly suggested in the mighty mosaic of episodes and battle-action details that are packed into this film. .... The total effect of the picture is that of a huge documentary report, adorned and colored by personal details that are thrilling, amusing, ironic, sad. It makes no conclusive observation, other than the obvious one that war is hell and that D-Day was a gallant, costly triumph for the Allied forces, not for any one man. It is hard to think of a picture, aimed and constructed as this one was, doing any more or any better or leaving one feeling any more exposed to the horror of war than this one does."

-- Excerpt from The New York Times; October 5, 1962
