Great film!!! Great actor!!!
13 October 2001 | by (Simi Valley, california) – See all my reviews

This film more than any other one tells me what a great actor Robert Duvall is! He is totally immersed in his character. With the makeup, he IS Ike. And Lee Remick is perfect in her role as Kay Summersby. I would recommend this movie to anyone.
