    AMC is showing The Longest Day right now. And I noticed something a bit strange. Jeff Hunter is in the movie and it seems like he played two different characters. They just showed a scene where he and Tommy Sands are on one of the transports heading for the invasion. Well, the troops on that ship are Rangers heading for Pointe du Hoc. But, in later scenes, Hunter is on Omaha Beach heading up a demolition crew trying to blow a hole for the U.S. troops to rush through. Now, he was either a Ranger or he was with one of the divisions on Omaha but, he couldn't be two places at once. And he couldn't have gone astray ending up from the Rangers on Pointe du Hoc to Omaha. I think the director might have forgot just where Hunter character was supposed to be.
