Film information

Story: Collection of films set during World War II. In 'D-Day, the Sixth of June' (1956) a British and an American soldier (Robert Taylor and Richard Todd), both in love with the same woman (Dana Wynter), are travelling to Normandy in 1944. Both fully aware of the dangers of the impending invasion, they stave off fear by reminiscing about their romances. 'The Longest Day' (1962) sees an all-star international cast re-tell the events of the Allied Landings in Normandy in 1944. John Wayne, Robert Mitchum and Henry Fonda head the cast. 'A Bridge Too Far' (1977) is Richard Attenborough's account of the failed 1944 Arnhem assault. Dirk Bogarde, James Caan, Robert Redford and Sean Connery are among those battling against insurmountable odds to secure one of the bridges essential to the Allied advance into Germany. The life and times of America's most famous modern general, George Patton (George C. Scott), are recreated in 'Patton' (1970), a biographical drama which focuses on his controversial exploits during the Second World War. Guy Hamilton's classic war film 'Battle of Britain' (1969) looks at how England defended itself from the German aerial onslaught in the summer of 1940. Laurence Olivier plays Sir Hugh Dowding, the chief air marshal whose fleet outmanoeuvre the Luftwaffe, despite a numerical disadvantage. George Segal and Robert Vaughn star in John Guillermin's 'The Bridge at Remagen' (1969), telling the story of the day that the Nazis blew up the last remaining bridge over the Rhine, leaving their own men stranded on the wrong side. In 'Attack' (1956), a group of American soldiers find themselves trapped by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge. The situation reaches a crisis point when their cowardly and indecisive captain (Eddie Albert) eventually flips into sheer panic. 'Von Ryan's Express' (1965) tells the story of US pilot Colonel Joseph Ryan (Frank Sinatra) who is shot down and placed in a German POW camp. Although Joseph is more concerned with his own survival than actually breaking free from the camp, he unpredictably gets chosen as leader of a daring escape attempt, facing many hazards along the way.
