Film Club: The Longest Day (1962)

Home » podcasts » Film Club 21

Concluding our 80th Anniversary D-Day celebrations, Tim Hewitt joins Ollie to discuss the 1962 classic starring John Wayne, Mel Ferrer, Robert Wagner, Richard Burton, Robert Mitchum, Robert Ryan, Henry Fonda, Richard Todd, Kenneth More, Sean Connery, Curd Jurgens and a host of other Hollywood stars.

But is it any good? And should Cornelius Ryan have been allowed to write the screenplay? And, what about the CGI?

All these questions, and more, are answered in this month’s Film Club.
