NewsTalk WHCU is partnering with Cinemapolis to present the Legends and Legacies Film Series. It continues Sunday, June 9th at 2 pm with the 1962 World War II classic, The Longest Day.
It’s a 75th anniversary tribute to the heroes who hit the beaches at Normandy that fateful day, June 6th, 1944, turning away Nazi tyranny and saving mankind from its evil intent. This blockbuster features such huge American and British actors as John Wayne, Kenneth More, Richard Burton, Peter Lawford, Henry Fonda, Sean Connery, Jeffrey Hunter, Robert Wagner and Rod Steiger. The French actress, fashion model and singer Arletty plays her true life role as a French woman imprisoned in 1945 for her wartime liaison with a German Luftwaffe officer during the German occupation which prompted a charge of treason against her. The film won two Academy Awards and was nominated for three others.
Prior to the showing of The Longest Day, WHCU will provide a guest speaker for the occasion.
General Admission tickets for this special event screening are just $10, with discounts for Seniors and Youth age 12 and under.
