Project Main Details

No Bridge Too Far Chapter Two Ernest Wayne Warner 

This is for an ongoing project; my documentary, No Bridge Too Far. I now am in need of another talent to play the part of Ernest Wayne Warner. A good friend of mine was playing this role (volunteering) and was doing a superb job, however he is now being transferred out of state for several months, and will no longer be able to fulfill this role. Therefore, I am actively seeking someone to take over this part, in order to help me complete chapters one and two this month.

This role WILL CONTINUE on through the end of the production, which if all goes as planned, will be completed late this year. There will be six chapters in total, so expect a page or two at most of dialog for each of the four chapters to come.

As I stated for each role I've posted last month on 123, I am on a very limited budget. I am willing to give you a down-payment as a good faith gesture if you take on the role. Several of the talents from 123 have made similar arrangements with me, allowing me to make partial pmts as we go along, with the final payment due at the close of the project.

I know this is asking a lot, and therefore this may not work for you. I can totally understand something like this may not be feasible for you to do.

If you have any questions, and I'm sure you will, please don't hesitate to ask. If you are curious about the project, you can read more about it here:

These are actual quotes from "my boys". 
Chapter Two – Ernest Wayne Warner – Kasserine Pass

“The outfit never saw too much more combat till later – But we were sure worked plenty, then came the battle of Kasserine...”

He tell hows they had the “privilege” of manning the outpost and reporting enemy troop movements in the valley.

“A light tank came churning up and came to a screeching halt, “GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE!” The whole German army was coming up the road.”

While on the move, he heard a loud crack, and saw his first tank.

“The tank was the most fearsome thing to me at the time. The long snout-like barrel gave a huge belch of fire and smoke, and we heard the banshee-like wail and shriek, and destruction hit the earth and gave vent to an ear-splitting roar. Rocks and earth-debris flew about us. This was our second baptism of fire.”

19th Combat Engineer

Ernest Wayne Warner – Chapter Two – Slide 16

Soldiers in barracks were given the orders to “pack-'em-up” and “move-'em-out”. Ernest Wayne Warner, of Utah, 19th Combat Engineer, remembers.

“On July 9th, we were alerted to be ready to be on our way overseas. A lot of us were a little worried-some were elated-some were ready to be glory bound-and me, I guess I was just a little mediocre. I was with the crowd and hoping to be as honest with myself as anyone could be in that time of strife and trouble. I hoped when the going got tough, I would be able to hold my end up, fairly and in good faith.”

“At last the big day came and we were hauled to the docks, where we waited in line to embark on a ship. A ship so immense as to fill the imagination of a lifetime. It was huge! Her name was Queen Elizabeth. She was over 1200 feet long and a full six stories high. When I was aboard the ship, I was further flabbergasted to find out there were over 12,000 troops on her. We made the crossing in three days and two nights.

“Our first port of call was Glasgow, Scotland. We were met by a small ship which went around and around the Queen Elizabeth. The smaller ship had a numbers of Scottish pipers, and they were playing Yankee Doodle Dandy on the bagpipes. It was something long to remember.”
