title role of this 1979 drama about a hardcore Marine lieutenant
named Bull Meechum (Duvall), a fighter ace who calls himself "The
Great Santini" and compensates for peacetime inactivity by
waging war on his intimidated children. Military brats may recognize

Syliva Nasar, a 1965 graduate of Ankara High School, wrote the
notable biography that inspired this movie of John Nash's incredible
life story. Russell Crowe tackles the role with characteristic fervor,
playing the Nobel prize-winning mathematician from his days at Princeton,
where he developed a groundbreaking economic theory, to his meteoric
rise to the cover of Forbes magazine and an MIT professorship, and
on through to his eventual dismissal due to schizophrenic delusions.
In nineteen-eighteen, he emerged from World War One
as the only undefeated Ottoman Commander. He led his people in their
struggle against the invading Greek forces and won back their independence.
Stalin considered him as a fascist; Hitler and Mussolini said he
was a communist; others called him a dictator...His people called
him Atatürk, Father Turk.
