Interview of Saving Private Ryan....
well, i got interested in Band of brothers, and was at a site, when it talked about the guy who actually fought in the war, and was there to watch over Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers, Platoon, and a few others.... anyway, he was interviewed, and he was asked about Omhah Beach in Saving Private Ryan. Here is his answer-
"It is a balancing act. If we take the example of the first 20 minutes of "Saving Private Ryan", I did slather on the gore but that was because Omaha Beach was a literal meat grinder. It was a man-killer. That's not revisionist at all. These things happened. We actually talked to the guy that picked up his arm and staggered across the beach. That's the real deal. I've been there, where the gore is slathered on whether you like it or not. If that's the way it was, good, that's the way we'll show it. If it wasn't we will not show it that way. "
"We actually talked to the guy that picked up his arm and staggered across the beach."
