The concept of the film was first developed in 1956 by eighteen year-old Kevin Brownlow, and was eight years in the making -- the longest ever production schedule to date according to the Guinness Book of World Records. It had a cast of hundreds; all volunteers with only two professional actors among them. While trying to find WW2 uniforms for the film Brownlow met sixteen-year old history buff Andrew Mollo, and the two decided to work together on the project. Brownlow would later become a prominent film historian and Mollo a leading military historian. ''It Happened Here'' also launched the career of cinematographer Peter Suschitzky, who went on to such films as ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' and ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
