Super producer Daryl F. Zanuck brings together dozens of stars and multiple directors to tell the epic story of D-Day. There are multiple storylines, the drawback of which no actor is in it for very long, even big stars like John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Richard Burton, and a pre-Bond Sean Connery. As I was reading the credits, I was like, "Wait, Paul Anka was in this? And Sal Mineo? And Arletty?!" Despite being older, the battle sequences are still impressive, if not as graphically intense as "Saving Private Ryan." It does try to tell the story fro multiple perspectives (American, English, German, French), which is somewhat unique. It's somewhat uneven, but it is, of course, a sweeping, compelling story.
