It is definitely moving in person, I've visited three times so far

The attention to detail is amazing; there are three different species of flies on the bully beef

Great film.

It's how Michael Caine got into film. He fought in Korea and was taken on as an expert.

Ah, did not know that about Michael Caine. This, by the way, is one of my favorite threads. There is so much good stuff to be found on YouTube.

I think that film was on today. Was tempted to record it, but then completely forgot. Will probably be repeated soon though...

On the subject of movie stars and history, I had the honor and pleasure to have corresponded with Michael Todd before he passed. Not sure how many know he was in the Airborne during WW2 and jumped into Normandy. He told me once that there was a scene  that seemed a bit odd to him in the filming of The Longest Day, where he played Major John Howard who took Pegasus Bridge. In the war he was the actual officer that came up and told Major Howard that he was relieved by the 7th Battalion of the Airborne.   I don't know who the actor was that played the paratrooper who came up to Major Howard in the movie, but he said it always seemed a bit odd that as he turned around in that scene that I was talking to me.....or well, the actor who was playing me!

And that's the rest of the story,
