Photo Challenge Friday: One (Bridge Too Far)

Photo Challenge Friday: One.

 

I took this text from Wikipedia. Just because my english suckz. Wealy bad. And you may notice that the title on its own has nothing to do with the Photo Challenge: One. But the movie  A Bridge Too Far is al about a bridge. One bridge. So, there we go, One bridge.

A Bridge Too Far is a 1977 epic war film based on the 1974 book of the same name by Cornelius Ryan, adapted by William Goldman. It was produced by Joseph E. Levine and Richard P. Levine and directed by Richard Attenborough.[1]

The film tells the story of the failure of Operation Market Garden during World War II, the Allied attempt to break through German lines and seize several bridges in the occupied Netherlands, including one at Arnhem, with the main objective of outflanking German defences.

The name for the film comes from an unconfirmed comment attributed to British Lieutenant-General Frederick Browning, deputy commander of the First Allied Airborne Army, who told Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, the operation’s architect, before the operation: “I think we may be going a bridge too far.[2]

The ensemble cast includes Dirk BogardeJames CaanMichael CaineSean ConneryEdward FoxElliot GouldAnthony HopkinsGene HackmanHardy KrügerLaurence OlivierRobert Redford and Maximilian Schell. The music was scored by John Addison, who took part in Market Garden.
