As I'm sat here, 'A Bridge Too Far' is on the TV. I've never really been that much into WW2 gaming, (happy to play with other's stuff though), but if any film was going to get me into it, this would be the one. Good soundtrack too. Maybe it's the scale of the thing, loadsa tanks and massed planes, large visual airdrops and so on, or the large number of well known actors, but it must rank amomg one of the best.
How did they do those airdrops with loadsa parachutists? No digi-computer-graphic-whatnots in those days, (late '70's?), did they actually have all those planes flying and chaps dropping out of them then? Or is it all models?
