A small group of American soldiers find horror behind enemy lines on the eve of D-Day.
Overlord's first sequence, which sees the soldiers jumping from a burning plane, was done by rigging a plane on a gimbal, actually blowing up the front, tilting it as if it were actually falling through the air, and sending stuntmen tumbling through real fire.
There's a lot of soldiers out there and there's only four of us.
Paul, a young boy in a small rural village, owns a baseball glove and ball. Before the end of WWII, nobody in France played baseball and gear was impossible to find, even in peace time. To this day, baseball remains almost unknown in France, being only played at an amateur level by a small group of enthusiasts or Japanese expats. No TV channel shows games, there are no baseball fields or parks anywhere and no mainstream retailers carry the gear.
After the film was given the restricted R18+ rating in Australia, Paramount Pictures decided to edit out almost 1 minute of footage to lessen the violence for the cinema version. The subsequent re-submission got the film a more accessible MA15+ rating. Although this version never ended up getting released due to Paramount Pictures changing their minds to instead give the original R18+ rated cut to cinemas.
