The fact that the producers of the film referred to in this story needed to resort
to a Hollywood movie and the scenes they created rather than using entirely period film shot by war photographers was that all but a short clip of a small part of the landing that we are all now so familiar with. This original footage is all that ever gets played because that is all there is: all that remains of the American D Day landings.
There was apparently a lot of film shot, how could there not have been. However, it was all lost when the craft carrying the film was hit and boat sunk as the film was being taken out to waiting transports.
I am unable to factualy site this because the info was part of a documentry I watched - possibly on the History Channel, but who knows now.
