Robert Farley (Lawyers, Guns and Money, University of Kentucky) and Nicholas Sarantakes (U.S. Naval War College, Dropping the Torch)

On Foreign Entanglements, Rob speaks with Nicholas Sarantakes, author of the new book Making Patton. Nick discusses the creation of the film Patton, including the disputes between the producers, the Army, and surviving figures like General Omar Bradley. Rob wonders about how Patton fit in with the political climate of the late ’60s in the United States, noting that the film is difficult to interpret as anti-war. Next, Rob and Nick talk a bit about the international disputes caused by Patton before moving on to representations of international politics in art, specifically in Star Trek. Rob concludes by wondering whether we’ll see Ryan Gosling starring in Petraeus in 20 years.
