I was watching Tom Sellcik in Count Down to D-Day last week. I liked Tom's Portrayal of Ike very much.
I could not help thinking about George C Scott's Paton and Gregory Peck's MacArthur.
For my money, Sellick's Ike was by far the best of the three.
AND marvelous Kiwi that portrayed the turd eating toad DeGaul, was the best performance in the movie. I really hated that frog--))) Was it true he refused to address the French people to cooperate in the invasion as protrayed?
Full disclosure. I had an uncle, now past on, who was in the Paton's 3rd army and he absolutely loathed the man.
My uncle was an AT gunner during the Bulge. He was wounded and left for dead. His uncle, a senior MP Sergeant, went out and not only found him but got him to an aid station in time for them to save his life. No %%@*.
OK here are the questions for those who have seen all three movies:
1. Which did you like best?
2. Which one do you think most accurately portaryed it's general?
3. Which general do you most admire, if any?
4. Which one would you choosed to serve under?
5. Which one did the most to win WWII?
I Like Ike!
