The Stars of the World’s Largest Production Are Spotlighted


Director Richard D. Lanni Kicks off
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

World War Two Tail Gunner Recalls Bombing Mission On D-Day

 

B-24 most produced during World War II

B-24 most mass produced during World War II

WW2-Reflections, a division of Labyrinth
Media & Publishing Ltd. of Dublin, Ireland
plans to show the battle tour film to American
Legion Post #43 in Hollywood on April 27th. 

Northridge, CA - 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 Morton (Mort) Schecter, Northridge, CA, who flew as a United States Army Air Forces 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,” he said.
Schecter, who flew 35 missions out of England, is amongst the American Veteran heroes, who flew on D-Day June 6, 1941. Schecter and his son plan to attend the premiere showing of the new battle tour film The Americans on D-Day, Monday, 7:00 p.m. (Cocktails 6:00 - 7:00 pm), Cabaret Room, American Legion Post #43, 2035 N Highland Ave., Hollywood, CA., 90068.
 “We were never shot down, but we did crash-land with six 1,000 pound bombs on board. We flew the first mission on D-Day and bombed at 3:30 in the morning, and it was the easiest mission, because we never saw any fighters or opposition. Then on June 8th, two days later, we went to Germany, we couldn’t drop our bombs due to a malfunction. When we aborted the mission, we returned, but the plane landed on its belly in the field after the landing gear struts broke. We landed with the bombs onboard, which did not go off. So I’m still here, he said.”
Schecter said he had an angel on his shoulder that day, and still has his list of the missions he flew. “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.
This is WW2-Reflections’ first tour film for its parent company, Labyrinth Media & Publishing Ltd. of Dublin, Ireland. Labyrinth specializes in WW II battlefield tour DVDS for the U.S. Market.
“We are thrilled to have the chance to recognize American Heroes of D-Day this year, on the 65th Anniversary of Normandy, and what better place to do it than at the historical American Legion Post 43 building," said Producer and Director Richard Lanni, WW2-Reflections, Dublin, Ireland. 
"The Americans on D-Day" -- which will be on sale Online in April -- makes extensive use of smart graphics and veterans' recollections, as well as invaluable assistance from Dale Dye, a retired U.S. Marine captain who founded Warriors Inc., which specializes in training actors for war-themed film and television productions.
"'The Americans on D-Day" provides an exciting insight into one of the most pivotal events of the 20th century," Dye said. "I'm really proud to have a hand in this effort to provide a foxhole-level view of what happened in Normandy on June 6, 1944.
"I've seen a lot of tour videos that purport to give viewers an insight into what gallant Americans endured and accomplished on D-Day, but this one really hits the mark," Dye said.
Ellwood von Seibold, battlefield guide of "The Americans on D-Day," donning American and sometimes German uniforms, hops into an early model Army Jeep much like Gen. George Patton rode in, to show viewers what soldiers endured in one of America's bloodiest battles.
"If you can't afford a trip to tour the battlefields of Normandy, just get a copy of 'The Americans on D-Day' and you'll get a stirring look at events that changed the course of World War II in Europe," said Dye, a highly decorated Vietnam veteran who lives in Los Angeles and has worked with Tom Hanks and other celebrities on award-winning productions including "Band of Brothers" and "Saving Private Ryan."
The production crew shot its first interview in 2007 with Howard Manoian, a veteran of the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne who landed in Normandy on D-Day and returned many years later to live in the country that he helped liberate.
 
"With the addition of archive footage and stills we have turned this interview into a short biographical documentary under the title of 'A Soldier's Journey,' which we also hope to launch for the 65th anniversary," Lanni said.
  

Howard Monian will be honored by the French Govenment this summer.
manoian was recently named a recipient of the Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur by the French government. He will be presented with the award in June at St. Mere Eglise, where U.S. paratroopers suffered heavy losses during the Normandy invasion.

Labyrinth specializes in WW2 battlefield tour DVDs for the U.S. market. "The Americans on D-Day" coincides with the 65th anniversary of D-Day and the Normandy invasion.

Dye was in France preparing for his forthcoming production, "No Better Place to Die." "We are thrilled that he has supported this tour film," Producer Richard Lanni said. "We wanted to show a snapshot of that 'Day of Days' through the individual soldier's eye," Lanni said. "Ellwood, who is an incredible 62-years-old, put on all the different uniforms, allowed himself to be suspended on a rope ladder over a cliff, ran out of the freezing water on Omaha Beach at 6.30 a.m., crawled through hedgerows and shinned up trees." The production shot its first interviews in 2007 with Howard Manoian, a veteran of the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne who landed in Normandy on D-Day and returned many years later to live in the country that he helped liberate. "With the addition of archive footage and stills we have turned this interview into a short biographical documentary under the title of 'A Soldier's Journey,' which we also hope to launch for the 65th anniversary," Lanni said.
