That may be, but in all events the owner of a large Southern
California laserdisk store recently told me about a
documentary on that format containing a lot of the
documentary footage George Stevens shot during WWII.  It's
called _George Stevens: D-Day To Berlin_, and it's only
about an hour long.
 
Perhaps this is what you heard about--or would be a
reasonable facsimile.
