...Peck is remarkably good....At unexpected moments, it's so moving.

Rating: 1/5 -- A woefully overblown biography with a wooden Indian Peck as MacArthur. He poses instead of acts.

...It does feature one of Gregory Peck's most assured and astute performances in the central role...

It was written in a series of bromidic cliches, sententious lectures and stuffily pretentious one-liners. Full Review

Gregory Peck plays MacArthur as an intense and dignified general with an arrogant and well-defined sense of patriotism. Full Review

Truman and his subsequent dismissal.
