The Movie Patton starring George C. Scott premiers

Patton 1970 "Patton" tells the tale of General George S. Patton, famous tank commander of World War II. His battlefield genius garners him fear and respect from the Germans, and resentment and misunderstanding from the Allies. A military historian and poet, he believes he was a warrior in many past lives, and that he is destined for something great during this life, but his stubbornness and controversial methods nearly prevent the fulfillment of that destiny. Side plots also speak of Patton's numerous faults such his temper and habit towards insubordination. Faults which would, eventually, lead to his being relieved as Occupation Commander of Germany. Starring roles are played by George C. Scott and Carl Malden. George C. Scott won and turned down a Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of the brilliant, no-nonsense WWII general in director The film won six other Oscars, including Best Picture.
