A Salute to the Great War Movies

<< Back to Speaking Topics List

Patton220John Wayne hits the beach in “The Longest Day,” and so does Tom Hanks in “Saving Private Ryan.”  Plus, Robert Duvall loves the smell of napalm in the morning in “Apocalypse Now.”
 
In this presentation enhanced with PowerPoint images and film clips lasting a little over an hour, Larry spotlights the great war movies throughout cinematic history.
 
Samuel Fuller's "The Big Red One" (1980) starring Lee Marvin is a personal favorite.  But look for classics like "Patton" and "All Quiet On the Western Front" to garner a salute as well.
