The Longest Day - An all-star cast has been enlisted for this epic recreation of the Allied invasion of Normandy that took place on June 6, 1944. This spectacular film noisily dramatises the viewpoints of the French, English, German, and American soldiers. Featuring Oscar winning special effects and cinematography, THE LONGEST DAY is an historic tour de force of spectacular sound and vision. This moment by moment account of the climactic battle of the second World War, fought on land, sea and in the air, is loaded with top class acting from John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda, Richard Burton, Sean Connery, Rod Steiger, Roddy MacDowall and many many more, almost as many as the 3 million men deeply involved on that historic summer day 1944.

A Bridge Too Far - Richard Attenborough's ambitious, all-star adaptation of Cornelius Ryan's book, scripted by William Goldman, gives an account of the Battle of Arnhem during 1944, part of an Allied attempt to expedite the end of the war with a costly operation to capture six bridges connecting Holland to Germany. A multitude of notable actors--such as Dirk Bogarde, Laurence Olivier, Sean Connery, Michael Caine, Robert Redford, Anthony Hopkins, Gene Hackman, Edward Fox, James Caan, Elliott Gould, and many more--star in this military epic.

Patton - World War II field general George S. Patton (George C. Scott) who wrote poetry, fired pistols at strafing fighter planes, and loved America with a lofty and historical zeal. Tracing his personal rivalries with such generals as Rommel and Montgomery, his problematic treatment of his own men, and his nearly runaway contempt for diplomacy, the film triumphs as an enduring portrait of a complex and larger-than-life figure. PATTON was recipient of 10 Academy Award Nominations and winner of eight, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--Scott, Best (Adapted) Screenplay--Francis Ford Coppola/Edmund H. North.
