Hi...here's a trivia question. Problem is I don't know the answer! I'm hoping someone here will. Here 'tis..
Who is the actor that plays the U.S. Paratrooper that does the scene with Richard Burton near the end of the film. The scene has a dead German officer with his shoes on the wrong feet and Richard Burton says.."He's dead, I'm wounded and your lost." or something similar.
Anyone know??

Don't recall who the actor was...but here is the quote:

* "He's dead. I'm crippled. You're lost. I suppose it's always like that. I mean war."

I believe it is Ron Randell... Jeffrey Hunter play's Sgt. (later Lt.) John H. Fuller who gets killed blowing up the wire at the beach.

It was Richard Beymer of West Side Story fame. Me thinks me right.

Yep it was Richard Beymer.. I found this..

Beymer had a significant role in The Longest Day (1962), sharing the film's unforgettable last scene with Richard Burton.

Thanks for your help!!
