Author: Filmmaker George Stevens (1904-1975) was a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army’s Signal Corps during WWII.
Dwight D. Eisenhower, tasked with planning and carrying out the Allied invasion of Normandy,
wanted film crews present at the invasion to provide footage for a documentary film.
Stevens took charge of the Special Motion Pictures Unit and gathered a group of cameramen and writers dubbed the “Stevens Irregulars”.
They used the standard Army motion picture stock, 35 mm black and white newsreel film.
But they also brought along a hand-held camera and some 16 mm Kodachrome color film.
Stevens team shot several hours’ worth of color footage from France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany.
