After seeing George C. Scott give incredible performances in Anatomy of a Murder and Hardcore in the last week, I wanted to revisit this and see how well it held up now that I’d seen more of his work.
Even with more context now, General Buck Turgidson remains my favorite comedic performance of all-time. In the conversation for best performance in general.
Every single person involved in the making is this movie is threatening to set the whole place on fire.
Scott is the best thing about all of it. I laugh basically every second he’s on screen.
