DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
HAVE you seen these before? It’s big movies, and the story they’re based on. Tonight it’s Saving Private Ryan. Two central questions: did it really happen, and would the US military have gone to so much trouble for one guy? I have a slight problem in that I’ve never seen Saving Private Ryan, but I’m sure I can rely on the word of Steven Spielberg who says the film, which he directed, is very realistic. There are also several American D-Day veterans here who agree. But it’s a movie, so there were also allowances made for entertainment purposes. Which is for the best, you’d have to say.
