Acting Great, set production, so-so....
9 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this program years ago, when the colorization of black and white footage was used for the first time in a mainstream production. The effect was less than stellar. Robert Duvall and the rest of the supporting cast were excellent. The acting and writing overcame the shortfalls in the production set design and the lack of detail to military hardware. I am glad that this didn't devolve to a torrid love affair that many "biographies" seem to do when it comes to military or world leaders. We can only hope that this is re-made with today's attention to detail that movies like Saving Private Ryan or Band of Brothers gave to their productions. Of course, I would also hope that any remake is also populated by actors at least as capable as Duvall and company. 6 stars of 10.
