Great Fox War Movies, The
Patton: Special Edition
This spectacular tribute to one of the most extraordinary figures of World War II, General George S. Patton, Jr., won seven 1970 Academy AwardsÂ®: Best Picture; Director (Franklin J. Schaffner); Writing, Story and Screenplay Based on Factual Material or Material Not Previously Published or Produced; Sound; Film Editing; Art Direction-Set Direction; and Best Actor for George C. Scott.
Scott's unflinching portrayal of the controversial military leader shows him as he was: beloved and despised, charismatic and confrontational. General Patton was a brilliant strategist, a pious man who swore up a storm - and his skills led the United States into the most famous and pivotal battles of the war in Europe.
