Heartwarming / The Longest Day

  • The Frenchman greeting Sean Connery with champagne as his unit marches up the beach. "Welcome! Welcome to you all!"
  • The French admiral tells his crews that they will have to open fire on their homeland.
    "That is the price of liberty. Vive la France!"
    • Basically, everything the French do in this movie: they're fighting to free their homeland, and you feel it every second they're on screen.
