Best Answer

There are several movies that attempt to capture the intensity of the D-Day Invasion. 1) Band of Brothers This is the end-all be-all D-Day video. Based on the Stephen Ambrose book of the same name, this HBO mini-series follows Easy Company from boot camp through D-Day and beyond the capture of Hitler's Eagle's Nest. I must confess I've watched the entire series a few times already. I think it's addictive! 2) Saving Private Ryan When this movie came out, there was one recurring theme when people discussed it. They couldn't believe the absolute realism that director Steven Spielberg captured. The opening scenes from the beachfront attack are haunting and intense. Tom Hanks is utterly believable as the troubled Captain Miller. Matt Damon's "Ryan," not even seen for most of the movie, is also well-played. 3) The Longest Day This 1962 film has an amazing cast: Richard Burton, John Wayne, Sean Connery, Red Buttons, Henry Fonda, Roddy MacDowell, shall I go on? It isn't as intense as its modern counterparts, but this is an excellent movie with wonderful performances. 4) Where Eagles Dare A unique take on the D-Day invasion, this 1969 film starring Clint Eastwood and Richard Burton is about an American general captured by the Nazis before the Normandy invasion. Fearing he will spill the beans, the British lead a mission to rescue the general before he is forced to reveal the D-Day plans. 5) The Big Red One Starring Lee Marvin, Mark Hamill and Robert Carradine, this 1980 movie follows a squad through several battles, D-Day included, as they progress through World War II. 6) D-Day the Sixth of June A 1956 movie staring Rod Taylor as the main character is about the D-Day invasion in name only. The plot revolves around the build-up for the invasion. 7) Ike: Countdown to D-Day A made-for-TV movie from 2004 that focuses on the command Allied Supreme Commanders during the tense 90 days leading up to the D-Day invasion and how Dwight Eisenhower, against all odds, brilliantly orchestrated the most important military maneuver in modern history. Oddly, Tom Selleck shaved his head & goatee and played the title role. 8) George Stevens: D-Day to Berlin A TV documentary about the final year of the war, released in 1994. This one may not be available for rent.

Where do films get made?

Films are 'made' wherever necessary to accommodate the story. Films are 'made' when the script is written, edited and vetted and finally funded. Films are 'made' when principal photography takes place. Films are 'made' in the editing room, the sound stages for overdubs and orchestration, and more. In other words, wherever the contribution is required, is where a 'film is made'.
