* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: When a [[LaResistance Resistance fighter]] hears the code words he's been waiting for on the radio, he excitedly rushes out to perform his assigned task. His apparently perplexed mother stares after him, then digs the radio out from where he hid it and switches it back on. Confused parent wondering what has made her son go off the deep end, or [[BadassGrandpa a fellow member of the resistance]] waiting for her own coded message?

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation - When a [[LaResistance Resistance fighter]] hears the code words he's been waiting for on the radio, he excitedly rushes out to perform his assigned task. His apparently perplexed mother stares after him, then digs the radio out from where he hid it and switches it back on. Confused parent wondering what has made her son go off the deep end, or [[BadassGrandpa a fellow member of the resistance]] waiting for her own coded message?
* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail - First, the original producer couldn't get the budget he wanted. Then, Darryl F. Zanuck met reluctancy by his son Richard ("No one cares about World War II anymore!") and the studio he founded, Fox - who eventually decided ''Film/{{Cleopatra}}'' was [[TroubledProduction screwing them enough]] and thus they could take a chance on Zanuck's project. It was a big hit, offsetting some of the ''Cleopatra'' losses.
* EarWorm - the ending/credits theme.
* EnsembleDarkhorse - British Captain Colin Maud (Kenneth More), in charge of getting the troops moving on Juno Beach. He's the one who gives the stalled tank a good bash. Maud was on set as an advisor and loaned the shillelagh he had that day to More.
* PacingProblems - For starters, [[ItGetsBetter it takes 45 minutes to get out of military planning into the actual invasion]]. And then the battles frequently break rhythm by cutting back to officers talking, making the 3 hour duration not easy to endure.
* MisaimedFandom - According to producer Daryl F. Zanuck, the film was supposed to be an anti-war film (which can already seen by the fact, that he engaged Austrian-Swiss Bernhard Wicki, maker of ''Die Brücke'' as a director). Instead, the film seemed to encourage many American youths into enlisting to go to Vietnam.
* WTHCastingAgency - John Wayne, age 54, was '''twice''' the age of Benjamin Vandervoort during D-Day, age 27.
