Overlord (1975) DVD9 The Criterion Collection
Drafted into the British army, Tom Beddows (Brian Stirner, All Creatures Great and Small) and his fellow soldiers await their mission. Their days are a mix of training and waiting, boredom and fear of the unknown. They wish the war would go away, that they could return to their parents and girlfriends. During a furlough, Tom meets a girl named Janey (Julie Neesam, The Island of Adventure) but knows he has no future with her. Whatever his mission, he feels in his gut that he won't survive. His buddies Jack (David Harries, Prime Suspect 6: The Last Witness) and Arthur (Nicholas Ball, Lifeforce) have a similar sense of impending doom. None of the young men know it, but they'll be among the first troops to land in Normandy at the launch of Operation Overlord, the Allied offensive to push the Nazis out of France.
