(ABC, 5/3/1979 to 5/6/1979, 3 Parts, 120 mins each, 6 hours). Eisenhower the military man is the focus of this six hour miniseries, his relationship with the other wartime leaders, and, very discreetly, his personal relationship with his driver, Kay Summersby. “Ike” came up with five Emmy Award nominations: Outstanding Cinematography (Part 2), Outstanding Film Editing (Part 3), and three others in the technical category. Based on the 1976 book “Past Forgetting” by Kay Summersby Morgan, the production subsequently was cut to four hours and retitled “Ike: The War Years.”
