Very watchable portrait of the Supreme Commander
1 May 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Robert Duvall must have watched a lot of footage of the real Eisenhower. His performance is never boring, and the other cast members are fine, too. As World War II history, this four-hour mini-series may give too much importance to Ike's relationship with his driver, Kay Summersby, on whose memoir the script is partly based. But who cares? As a movie, it is well written and acted, and doesn't distort the important historical facts. We get to see many of the great personalities: Roosevelt, Churchill, Montgomery, the other generals. And we get to see some fascinating incidents, for example, Ike meeting personally with the troops as they prepare to cross the English Channel on D-Day. I've seen this film several times, and still enjoy it. A first-class production.
