Default `Battle of the Bulge' director Annakin dies at 94

LOS ANGELES Film director Ken Annakin has died at the age of 94.

The British-born filmmaker is best known for directing the 1965 World War II epic "The Battle of the Bulge" with Henry Fonda, Charles Bronson, Robert Shaw and Telly Savalas.

Annakin's daughter, Deborah Peters, says he died at his Beverly Hills home Wednesday night. Peters says her father had been in good health until February, when he had a heart attack and stroke within a day of each other.

Annakin's other films include "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines," for which he received an Academy Award nomination for original screenplay. He also directed "Call of the Wild," a 1972 adaptation of Jack London's adventure, and the 1960 Disney film "Swiss Family Robinson."

Here's a site with some of the mistakes made in the production of "Battle of the Bulge".
I'd rather be historically accurate than politically correct.
