Trivia

One of Gregory Peck's greatest heroes from childhood was President Abraham Lincoln. Peck was initially concerned about playing him since at 66 he was a decade older than Lincoln was when he was assassinated. See more »

Goofs

When John Geyser is shown making his drawings, the sketches you can see in the wide and medium shots rarely match the close-ups of the drawings. Most notably in the John Brown trial sequence, the wide shots show John has just a few doodles or sketchy outlines on his drawing pad, then we cut to a close-up of highly detailed, finished artwork.

OK Story. Could have been more realistic like Gettysburg
22 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Blue and the Grey had a great plot and I really enjoyed this mini series. It showed the horrors of war and showed how some families were broken up by the conflict where in real life brother fought brother. I only wish that the Blue and the Grey could have been more realistic like Gettysburg. The uniforms used in this film are just too generic and too "Hollywood" unlike Gettysburg where the uniforms look authentic. I also dislike the over dubbing of the rifles and cannon that was so common until the last 15 years or so that seems so fake in comparison to Gettysburg. The battle scenes have a lot of action but there just seems to be too few people fighting the battle. Gettysburg on the other hand had plenty of extras; almost all of them Civil War reenactors, making the battle scenes more realistic. Perhaps if the producers of The Blue and the Grey had used reenactors they could have had better battle scenes and the mini series would have been more realistic.
