MacArthur is as good a film as could be made, considering the truly appalling egomania of its subject. Film stars Gregory Peck in an excellent and remarkable characterization.

Screenplay depicts the public aspects of Douglas MacArthur’s life from Corregidor in 1942 to dismissal a decade later in the midst of the Korean War, all framed between segments of his farewell address to West Point cadets.

Unlike Patton, which was loaded with emotional and physical action highlights, MacArthur is a far more introspective and introverted story. There are moments when, despite all evidence to the contrary, one actually can believe that MacArthur thought he possessed the only true vision of battle strategy; yet a second later, the vibrations of a brassbound poseur come across all too clearly.
