Normandy in Color

A Shooting War (with film).

Normandy in Color by brest44

This archival footage was too rich and mesmerizing not to share.  In what I assume is a segment of acclaimed director George Steven's film D-Day to Berlin, these snippets of film from June and July 1944 are intimate, revealing, and important.  Steven's cadre of cameramen included experienced filmmakers, cinematographers, and producers who adapted to Newsreel and Army life.  Known as "Steven's Irregulars," these Hollywood types nevertheless realized they were filming something  more than a mere movie.  Watch, learn, and enjoy.
