One of my favs that I have in my collection is "The Longest Day"....I did see where the Western Channel is doing the John Wayne all day salute on Memorial Day....anybody got favs they watch over this weekend?
I couldn't agree more. Keep the tissues handy.
On the lighter side two of my favorites are;
“Captain Newman, MD” Gregory Peck, Tony Curtis, and a great ensemble cast.
“Father Goose” Cary Grant and Leslie Caron.
Second Restrepo - absolutely top of the line.
And the Civil War: Ken Burn's series The Civil War
The bar scene in “Not With My Wife, You Don’t” [Tony Curtis, Virna Lisi, and George C. Scott].
Tony is married to Virna, who used to be Scott’s girlfriend. Scott wants her back.
In the bar, Tony starts a hilarious bar fight in order to keep Scott from leaving with Virna. He does this by saying to an Australian soldier, “Spit on the American Flag, will ya” ...
Mayhem ensues. Scott gets separated from Virna in the melee. Tony grabs her and almost makes it to the door.
Where Scott says, “Spit on the Australian Flag, will ya” ...
Tony then gets the crap beat outta him by the Aussies ...
Not real Tigers....T34 tanks made into Tigers. They did a good job.
The only real Tiger I have seen in a movie was the one in Saving Private Ryan. A German Reenacting group own it now. I saw it at a battle at Fort Indiantown Gap a few years ago and it ran like crap. Found out the transmisson was Kaput.
Thumbs up. Cross Of Iron rocked.
The sequal sucked rocks however.
