D-Day: The Beginning Of The End
This FanEdit is strictly a POV from the Allied perspective and takes place during the course of one day. I have tried to create a documentary feel to the action and so all German POVs have been cut (including interior machine gun nests and German establishing shots). This was done to show only what an allied soldier might have seen during the conflict.
A Bridge Too Far
Saving Private Ryan
- NTSC DVD-5
I have removed all music but for the opening and end credits.
The difference between the hand held footage of Saving Private Ryan with the more static and conservative approach of The Longest Day is evident but I hope I have inter-cut the two with as much seamlessness as possible but I will let you be the judge of that.

I have not been a big fan of this movie in the past. Generally speaking, when it was on tv, I would watch it, have is as background noise, watch it etc etc. In short, when I watched the original, I always knew I was watching a stylized movie made in the 1960s that wasn’t all that great, but filled with “big name stars” to create buzz.
I was reluctant to watch this edit, but it worked well for me.
I definitely liked the inclusion of scenes/material. I hate to sound unoriginal or redundant, but the “bangalore mine scene” is definitely a stand-out scene in this edit.
Until I read RockSavage’s review, I too, thought that Mollo used old newsreel footage in parts of this edit.
This is a great new war movie, not just a simple re-hash of the original.
This is a great example of what these editors are capable of here. The edit goes beyond the simple “cut material/scenes” from an edit. This is a new and highly watchable movie.
