Patton (1970) (SC)
Release Date: November 6, 2001.
"One hell of a war picture."
A critically acclaimed film that won a total of seven 1970 Academy Awards (including Best Picture), Patton is a riveting portrait of one of the 20th century's greatest military geniuses. One of its Oscars went to George C. Scott for his triumphant portrayal of George Patton, the only Allied general truly feared by the Nazis. Charismatic and flamboyant, Patton designed his own uniforms, sported ivory-handed six-shooters, and after D-Day led his troops in an unstoppable campaign across Europe. But he was rebellious as well as brilliant, and as Patton shows with insight and poignancy, his own volatile personality was the one enemy he could never defeat. -- (C) 20th Century Fox, 1970, USA.
