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.
