worst casting / acting ever?
i was looking forward to see this miniseries whuch I had missed when on TV ..Altough I enjoyed the parts that deal with the war itself I found myself doing fast forward on all the other scenes...boring the dialogues
-pug / ronda,natalie /byron, ronda /kirby etc etc
-I like Mitchum but at 66 too old for the part ..cant imagine Vitoria Tennant falling for him
-Ali Mc Graw....A major disaster -- horrendous acting ...At 46 and showing it he was given a difficult role and she manages to be the most obnoxious caracter in the series
-Vincent -He does not know how to act ...a non-starter
-Hitler -The actor plays the part as a comedian imitating Hitler ..horrendous ...made me laugh
-Peter Graves appears constipated -Polly Bergen Ok acting but an impossible caracter to play
-John Houseman.A fine actor ..probably his WORST perfomance playing a jewish writer...With all the fine jewish actors they cast a typical WASP to play the part
I was also puzzled by the choice of the actress playing the fiancee of the other son of Pug.....She appears to have a glass eye ...I saw her in the first scene after that I probably fast forwarded ...can someone confirm this?
A dissapointment in the non-war end of the series badly acted and miscast and interminable dialogues ..
Cannot understand how experienced directors and producers can screw up so badly...
