65TH  ANNIVERSARY OF D-DAY
CELEBRATED ON
FILM 

  “The Americans on D-Day” is a compact and concise examination of the United States’ part in the June 6, 1945, Allied invasion of Normandy. 

 Considering the enormity of the actual D-Day undertaking it might sound hopeless to present a comprehensive account in a film with a running time of 44 minutes, but producer-director Richard Lanni has come up with a well organized documentary that provides a clear outline of the events of D-Day, punctuated along the way with somewhat more detailed accounts of specific moments in the battle that turned the tide of World War II in Europe. The American Legion has posted a link to sale DVD The Americans On D-Day visit: http://www.hollywoodpost43.org/v2.0/main.asp?p=links

  The film benefits immensely from the presence of Ellwood von Seibold as

host-narrator-tour guide. Donning authentic military uniform and

accessories – down to the “pineapple” style hand grenade hanging from his

utility webbing – von Seibold shares a wealth of knowledge on the subject,

presenting it with an elegance that provides an effective counterpoint to
the brutality that is, after all, at the center of the D-Day story. 

  “The Americans on D-Day” strikes a tone appropriate to the nature of D-Day, offering a matter-of-fact account that acknowledges the powerful emotional component of its subject matter while stopping short of romanticizing or idealizing an event that was as bloody and brutal as it was essential to the Allies’ success in Europe.

 

  The production deftly blends archival footage and stills with contemporary footage. Early on, we see black-and-white images ofU.S. forces, including Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower – as we hear audio of Ike’s sendoff to the D-Day forces.

 

  “You are about to embark upon a great crusade,” he tells them. “The hopes and prayers of liberty loving people everywhere march with you. You will bring about the destruction of the German war machine.

 

  “We will accept nothing less than full victory”

 

  The film then goes on to function as a battlefield tour, offering close-ups of German fortifications along the beaches of Normandy, arms – including the MG-42, a heavy machine gun that could fired upwards of 1,200 rounds per minute – and bridges and structures that played key roles in the Allie invasion.

 

  Interviews with both U.S. and German veterans of the operation provide further personal insight into the significance of D-Day and its human toll.

 

  Many of the images presented in “The Americans on D-Day” will be familiar to those who have seen the feature film “Saving Private Ryan,” the TV miniseries “Band of Brothers,” or any number of other filmed projects that touch on D-Day.

 

  The DVD package has extras including the film’s trailer, a making-of feature, a segment on weapons training, another on uniforms and a collection of stills.

the 65th Anniversary USA Tour in
 Hollywood and New York with American
 Legion Post 43 in Hollywood and an
encore on WOR Radio in New York

The Americans on D-Day Premiere in Hollywood, CA

The Americans on D-Day Premiere in Hollywood, CA-The Americans on DDay premiere feature three generations of famlies and veterans celebrating the new film now on sale Online. (l-R) Morton Schecter, son Glen, Producer Richard Lanni, Terry Duddy, The American Legion Post 43 and 9 year old Grandson Ben Schecter.

New York, NY / Los Angeles, CA —  Hollywood’s American Legion Post 43 rolled out the red carpet this week for the stars of the world’s largest production – a film on the invasion of Normandy, “The Americans On D-Day.” Just under  100 people, mostly veterans, gathered at the 80-year old building in Hollywood to see the debut of a first of its kind film, now available on DVD Online (see details below).
 
Film Director Richard D. Lanni, who returns to New York today (Wednesday) to appear on the Joey Reynolds Show, WOR AM, New York, (10:00 PM EST) told the Hollywood American Legion audience, “I am honored to be here in America to salute U.S. soldiers on this 65th anniversary and to show our film that captures an accurate and powerful illustration of D-Day.”
 
“It’s great to see friends and veterans of the world’s most intense and largest production,” said Morton (Mort) Schecter, Northridge, CA, who brought his son, and nine-year old grandson, who led the mostly veteran attended ceremony in the flag salute and pledge of allegiance.
 
“When we flew over the English Channel, there were a million ships in the water, and I have yet to meet any of those guys who were on those ships,” said 85-year old retired U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Schecter, Northridge, CA, who flew as a United States Army Air Corps tail gunner in a B-24 Liberator warplane, the most produced U.S. military aircraft during World War II. He was assigned to the 467th Bomb Crew and 791st Bomb Squadron in England. “I’m lucky to still be here, because and the second day we had to abort our mission, and ended up crash landing in a field with six 1,000 pound bombs onboard,” he said. Schecter said he had an angel on his shoulder that day, and still has his list of the missions he flew.

 Schecter, who flew 35 missions out of England, is amongst the American Veteran heroes attending the premiere. He was assigned to the same division as Actor Jimmy Stewart. “Actor Jimmy Stewart was in our division, and he flew 28 missions. He entered the service as a buck private and when he died he was a General,” he said. “He used to visit veterans hospitals and the American Legion often.”
 
Also attending from Europe and the UK were film star Ellwood von Seibold, who has spent the last five years giving tours in Normandy. "D-Day became a focus point of my interest in life, and I decided to live a dream and move to France and take people all around these areas," explained Seibold. "And the producer and director of WW2-Reflections said 'why don't we put one of your tours on film in Normandy'."  For the full Story visit: http://tinyurl.com/cutzth
