D-Day Remembered


As we mark 80 years since D-Day, we are delighted to share with you this rare colour footage shot June 1944 by documentary filmmaker Jack Lieb, who, finding himself too old for the draft, worked for newsreel company News of the Day and shot the D-Day landings.

Lieb worked in a group of journalists together with Ernest Hemingway, Bob Landry, Robert Capa and others. Jack Lieb shot a lot of footage of his colleagues but, 80 years on, this is surely his most important film legacy.
