|I still think that a really definitive, honest and compelling movie about George Armstrong Custer has not been made. Those that have been made have been anemic efforts at best. But Custer, who finished last in his class at USMA, had an amazing life and promoted himself quite successfully as the rock star of his time. His death, however, is probably what made him immortal in American history.
If I were to write a book or film a movie about Custer, I would START with Little Big Horn and then flash back, so that other fascinating aspects of his life would not be overshadowed. Custer's life was about so much more than that infamous slaughter at Little Big Horn.
