The 1977 movie "A Bridge Too Far" told the story of Operation Market Garden, the ill-fated Allied attempt to shorten the war by seizing key bridges between Eindhoven and Arnhem in Holland with airborne troops to allow British armor to cross the Rhine into Germany. Unlike historian Cornelius Ryan's 1962 classic "The Longest Day", the production crew of "A Bridge Too Far" found original uniforms quite difficult to acquire, so the studio decided to create its own. "The Vintage News" article from January 2016 titled "A Bridge Too Far-Things We Didn't Know" stated, "As real Waffen-SS reversible camouflage smocks were unavailable, smocks used in the movie were tailored from post-war German shelter halves in the 'Amoeba' camouflage pattern."
