  1. I'm a bit of a WWII history buff, and I like the movies made about the period, but this has always puzzled me. Why is it, when they are showing troops moving into the towns in Normandy on or after D-Day, there's very often an abandoned piano in the middle of the street during a firefight? All the way up to Band Of Brothers and Saving Private Ryan, it seems to be a requirement. It is like the Wilhelm Scream that all directors think they have to have sneak one now, and it's an inside joke? Is this where old upright pianos go to die?
  2. Top 5 - tough choice. In no partcular order: Midway Bridge On the River Kwai Inglorious Basterds San Demitro London The Longest Day But I'm pretty much a fan of any Pacific theater WWII films, especially sub films. I think I was a submariner in an earlier life. Edited by: johngla on Jan 28, 2012 3:32 PM
