Product Description

A critically acclaimed film that won a total of eight 1970 Academy Awards (Including Best Picture), Patton is a riveting portrait of one of the 20th century's greatest military geniuses. One of it's Oscars went to George Patton, the only Allied general truly feared by the Nazis. Charismatic and Flamboyant, Patton designed his own uniforms, sported ivory-handled six-shooters, and believed he was a warrior in past lives. He outmanuevered Rommel in Africa, and after D-Day led his troops in an unstoppable campaign across Europe. But he was rebellious as well insight and poignancy, his own volatile personailty was one enemy he could never defeat. Special Features: Introduction by screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola Commentary by Francis Ford Coppola "History Through the Lens: Patton - A Rebel Revisited" documentary "Patton's Ghost Corps" documentary "The Making of Patton" documentary Production still gallery accompanied by Jerry Goldsmith's complete Musical Score Behind-the-scenes still gallery accompanied by audio essay on the historical Patton Trailer

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic war biography Nov. 26 2009
"Patton"(1970) is a biographical war film directed by Franklin Schaffner (Planet of the Apes) and stars George C. Scott as George S. Patton. The script is by Francis Ford Coppola and Edmund H. North. The opening scene with Patton delivering a speech in front of a huge American flag is an iconic image in film history. The film won Best Picture, and Best Director, at the Academy Awards (1971), and Scott won Best Actor for his role as Patton. The movie was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and won 7.

Patton was a surly and brilliant strategist who was well versed in history. He even fantasized about being reincarnated throughout history. This allowed him to project his view of the present world through the eyes of historians, which in turn, gave him an uniquely clear view of his circumstances and his goals as a military leader. He subsequently had many military successes during WWII.

"Patton" looks great on blu-ray as it was shot in 65mm Dimension 150. Schaffner was acknowledged as being one of the best to handle "epicness" in films. "Patton" runs at close to three hours in length.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Piece of History June 23 2009
I am not always a fan of war films, but this is a really good exception and George C. Scott gives the performance of a lifetime of a highly controversial figure. Whether you end up liking or hating Patton, probably a mixture of the two, you can't help but admire some aspects of the man, just one of those guys you wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of. The bonus material is really interesting and provides important background on the man, the myth and the legend. Money and time well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars George C. Scott was perfect for this role Nov. 17 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is all about WWII's American Army General "Blood and Guts" Patton, both the good and the bad, and Scott played him to a T. My favourite scene was when a reporter asked Patton if he reads the Bible. Patton replied with a smile, "Certainly do - every goddamn day." If it wasn't for Scott, Karl Malden, who played General Omar Bradley, could very well have stolen the show. I liked his summary of Patton to his face: "You love war." And I loved the movie.

My favorite war movie of all times about my favorite army general. Yes, it is riddled with inaccuracies and silly mistakes, but George C. Scott's acting is magnificent and is inspiring. 5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie! March 17 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I chose this rating because it's the first time that Patton can be viewed at home (if you have a large and well calibrated wide screen monitor) almost exactly the way it looked in a 70mm equipped movie theatre - the Blu-ray transfer is that good. Not to mention that it's a truly outstanding film in every respect... especially the Academy Award Winning performance of George C. Scott as General Patton.

3.0 out of 5 stars War movie or biography ? Dec 5 2012
If Patton is supposed to be a war movie with it's main character being General Patton, then the German tanks shouldn't look like something from the Spanish military with grey paint jobs. I just can't get into a war flick when the hardware is wrong.

If Patton is to be a biography in a wartime setting, then I would have liked at least some time devoted to his childhood, upbringing, and early military career. Who is this guy ?

To me, the movie falls short on both fronts. An 'ok' movie, but that's it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Génial film de guerre Nov. 7 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Biographie du général Patton, l'un des grands stratèges de la Deuxième guerre mondiale.

George C. Scott y est tout simplement inspiré dans ce qui fut sans doute le rôle de sa vie.

Rappelons que ce film a remporté en 1970 sept oscars, dont celui du meilleur film de l'année.

Récolte bien méritée.
