The Longest Day

 (1962)

The Longest Day Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

The triumph and tragedy of the World War II heroes who stormed Normandy Beach on D-Day, June 6, 1944, are immortalized in this film. Seen through the eyes of Allied generals, foot soldiers, strategists and paratroopers, The Longest Day recounts the largest and greatest military mission of all time. In a battle that would change the course of history, 5,000 ships unloaded over 3 million men on the beaches of France, and the Allies gained a valuable foothold on enemy territory, at an incalculable cost. This massive production required five directors and featured an international cast of thousands, including John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda, Eddie Albert, Richard Burton, Sean Connery, Peter Lawford, Rod Steiger, Stuart Whitman, Robert Ryan, Edmond O'Brien, Curt Jürgens and more!

For more about The Longest Day and the The Longest Day Blu-ray release, see the The Longest Day Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: John Wayne, Robert Mitchum, Henry Fonda, Robert Ryan, Rod Steiger, Richard Todd

The Longest Day Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Longest Day storms Blu-ray with an impressive black-and-white, 1080p, 2.35:1 framed stunner of an image. If this is what classic black-and-white films are going to look like on Blu-ray, I enthusiastically recommend that the studios bring them on. A vertical black line appears in some scenes. Some effects shots, like those of the German General Erwin Rommel discussing the possible Allied invasion at the beginning, stand out as especially phony under the harsh scrutiny of Blu-ray. Nevertheless, it adds a certain nostalgic charm to the scenes, and allows us to view the film fairly close to exactly how it was made. Some shots appear a bit soft and undefined, but for the most part, the image is remarkably sharp with excellent detail. Any time we see a close-up of uniforms, the German officer uniforms in particular, the ornateness of the medals and symbols, and the fabric of the clothing is exceptionally clear. In close-up shots inside the drop planes bringing the soldiers to the fight, we are privy to some remarkably fine detail in the straps, seeing every fray on their edges and stitching lines going through them. Even though this is a classic black-and-white image, there is still excellent separation of shades, and black levels are strikingly solid. There is also some wonderful cinematography in the movie; a long, continuous and panning shot of a running gun battle in chapter 34 is mesmerizing, and one of my favorite war movie scenes, ever. Much like the transfer we saw on Patton, this is another first-rate effort and befitting of the spectacle and grandeur of the film. Again, well done, Fox.


The Longest Day Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fox's DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless sound presentation found on The Longest Day is a solid one. It's not going to blow you away like an action film of more recent vintage such as Rambo, but for what it is, it's fantastic. Surrounds manage to be in use a good bit of the time, delivering both ambiance and action. They aren't always active, especially in a few spots where we would expect them to be in some scenes (take for example, chapter 14 where the noises of the busy German command center come through the front, but not the rear), but that's OK. The track seems representative of the source material, and for a film released in 1962, I'm more than pleased with the results. The militaristic, percussion-heavy music sounds wonderfully powerful and engaging, as do the opening credits featuring Beethoven's Fifth symphony. Bass isn't deep, but it more than suffices; all of the film's explosions sound magnificently classic, as does the machine gun fire, the ricochets of the bullets, and all the sounds of war. As planes strafe troops or drop bombs during the film's landing sequences about two hours in, you'll feel the impact of the munitions and almost constantly hear echoes and the distant sounds of gunfire and explosions. It's a nice effect, and a chilling one. This lossless soundtrack is obviously the best I've ever heard this film, and easily surpasses the DVD copy I've owned for a while now.
