By the time of the German surrender, Kay Summersby (portrayed by Lee Remick) had been promoted from U.S. Army First Lieutenant to U.S. Army Captain. This was not acknowledged in dialogue nor indicated as a visual cue by a change of rank insignia on Summersby's uniform. See more »

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.
