    Comments about The Great Santini:

    This superb drama is based on the semi-autobiographical novel by Pat Conroy. Robert Duvall, in one of his best rolls, plays a marine pilot, who struggles with separating his military command from his relationship with his family. He was nominated for an Oscar for his performance. Michael O'Keefe plays his son, who bears the brunt of his father's bravado and wrath. He was also nominated for an Oscar for his performance. One other actor of note, and also worthy of an Oscar, was Stan Shaw, who was perfect in the role of Toomer Smalls, a friend of the son.
