I must retract former comments about Gary Cole as Gen. G.A.Custer
I have just finished a fairly comprehensive study of Gen. G.A.Custer and the Battle of the Little Big Horn, that included virtually ALL of the current historical literature on GAC & LBH, and a TOUR of the actual Little Bighorn Battlefield in Montana. I therefore must not merely amend my previous comments but retract them all together. Gary Cole gives us an EXCELLENT and more historically accurate picture of this still controversial military officer, than ANY other actor before. Mr. Cole's GAC is much more real, human, complex and therefore accurate picture than say Errol Flynn's famous but almost comic-book character. Over all the attention to detail and historical accuracy is quite apparent in this excellent movie. Gary, sorry about my previous comments.....and oh yes I'm the one who probably needs riding lesson's not you. My High School students REALLY enjoyed your version of "Autie" Custer. I continue to highly recommend (and LEND) this outstanding movie to other American History teachers at my High School. Gary Cole does the "Boy General" PROUD.
