: I also wanted to describe the end of a record. I admit freely that I paid NINE times to see LOTM in the theater. Yes, all my friends and family thought it was a little weird....
...The viewings were spread out from the film's opening day in September 1992 to February 1993.

>Haha! I know what you mean. I saw LOTM 3 consecutive nights at the local restored movie palace [a turn of the century vaudeville theater]. My family thought that too was strange ;-)

: In Saving Private Ryan it's mainly the last half hour of the film in which a handful of US Army Rangers and paratroopers from the 101st Airborne attempt to hold a strategic bridge against an assault by what appears to be a reinforced company of panzergrendiers from the 2nd SS "Das Reich" Division. It's terrific film making.

>There is a pretty good website that features the British reenactors that portrayed the German troops, & has behind the scenes photos from the set. These guys are so hardcore, that they speak ONLY German when reenacting. I'll get you the URL for this site...

: Will this one ever fall? Well, if they ever do make that Custer-Little Bighorn picture, which has been rumored for three years, then SPR might get some competition.

>Really? I'll check with some pards of mine from Montana, Colorado & South Dakota who reenact the 7th Cav, & no doubt will be involved if it is ever made [they were amongst the cav reenactors in "Son of Morning Star", etc]...
If I hear anything I'll let ya' know...
