The Longest Day Movie Original Storyboards

I have just listed several storyboards of the movie, "The Longest Day". This movie was a epic war movie showing the WWII invasion of Normandy. This movie had every movie star it could think of playing a role. Richard Burton was flown over to France for one day of shooting! Some of the actual participants in the original battle took part in the movie as extras but were not given any credits for their parts. If you remember the movie at all, Red Buttons played the paratrooper in the church bell tower. That was an incredible scene!

I did a lot of research on the movie along with the actual historical reports on the famous battle. I will be doing a synopsis of what I found early in January. I found out some very interesting things about the people who actually were involved. I have included some of the storyboards here along with other pictures from the movie. Go to www.winchuckriverstore.com to see the other storyboards that I have listed. The art work was done by Mentor Huebler, who was a very well known artist. His storyboards have sold successfully at auction houses. I hope they sell as well on our website! I have priced them after researching the sales price for similar pieces of his work. I will consider reasonable offers and sell them in groups or the complete set. Of course, if you want the complete set that we are offering, you better act fast as to get them before someone picks up a few.

I hope we can bring in the true value of these storyboards for Elmo. Elmo Williams is building a glass chapel, Capella by the Sea, here in Brookings, OR in memorial to his late wife, Lorraine. I am sure the money from these storyboards will be a welcome source of funding for this beautiful building; which Elmo is donating to the city after it is built. The foundation is in and the chapel should be completed next spring.

Along with the storyboards, the buyer will get a letter of thanks from Elmo; which will add value to the purchase, as Elmo also worked on this film. He was head of production for Fox Studios in Europe during the time this film was made. He has told me stories about directing the flight scenes; which was quite an exciting task! Elmo Williams is an Oscar Winning movie producer and editor of many films. He had a 53 year career in the movie industry.

Happy New Year! I will write more about this film in a following blog. Come back often to see what is new at Winchuck River Store.
