D Day in Colour

Rare colour footage shot June 1944 by documentary filmmaker Jack Lieb, who worked for newsreel company News of the Day and shot the D-Day landings. Lieb worked in a group of journalists together with Ernest Hemingway, Bob Landry, Robert Capa and others. 

The film “D-Day To Germany” was shot from June to November 1944 by the cinematographer Jack Lieb, who was working as war correspondent for the newsreel News of the Day. Twenty-five years later, Lieb recorded spoken narration. Lieb shot silent colour footage of the “Operation Overlord” with his own 16mm camera. His commentary create a unique, personal recollection of that momentous time. He had used a 35mm black and white camera to film war coverage for the newsreels and his 16mm home movie camera to shoot colour film to show to his family back home. After the war, Lieb edited the colour footage
