Product Description

Released in 2006 as part of Fox's Cinema Classics Collection, this deluxe two-disc set of Patton is a worthy replacement for all previous DVD releases of Franklin J. Schaffner's Oscar®-winning film. All of the bonus features from Fox's previous DVD release are included here: Patton is presented with superior image and sound quality (it was one of only two features shot in the "Dimension 150" 70-millimeter format; the anamorphic 2.35:1 aspect ratio of previous DVDs has now been corrected to 2.20:1), and the 50-minute documentary "The Making of Patton: A Tribute to Franklin J. Schaffner" remains a thorough examination of the film's production, including abundant behind-the-scenes footage, camera tests, and 1997 interviews with producer Frank McCarthy, composer Jerry Goldsmith, cinematographer Fred Koenkamp, Fox executive Richard Zanuck, and others including Oliver Stone, who makes the controversial assertion that several viewings of Patton led President Richard Nixon's decision to bomb Cambodia during the Vietnam War (in turn leading to the genocidal rise of the Khmer Rouge). The combination of archival footage and interviews results in a concise examination of Schaffner's career as a much-admired "gentleman's gentleman," and the film (along with Planet of the Apes) that he'll best be remembered for.The new features are even better. On Disc 1, Patton cowriter Francis Ford Coppola provides an interesting introduction, explaining how (as a military school dropout in his mid-20s) he was assigned to write the film, feeling it necessary to satisfy audiences by addressing all aspects of Gen. George S. Patton's volatile and contradictory nature. Coppola's feature-length commentary goes further in explaining his approach to the screenplay, including the now-classic opening speech, which Fox executives originally disliked, leading to Coppola's dismissal and the hiring of cowriter Edmund H. North. --Jeff Shannon

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.

George C. Scott’s extraordinary performance and the excellent production make this one of the most significant war movies ever. Scott’s Oscar-winning portrayal was labelled “Aces” by one New York Times critic. The location and battle scenes and sets are all remarkable.

The Blu-ray DVD quality is sharp and clear though colour brightness is not as good as some broadcast HD formats I’ve seen. The edition I bought from Amazon also came with a standard (non-Blu-ray) disc and the usual documentary extras.

Scott’s portrayal dominates the movie and, admittedly, may not be to all tastes. And some scenes are superfluous or embellished and would have been better left on the cutting floor. But the movie steps up a gear when it moves from North Africa and Sicily over to the Western Europe war theatre. It would help to be up on your WWII history. Worthy of a look, the film is likely on many critic’s must-see movie lists.

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.

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.

By Bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER on Nov. 21 2006
Format: DVD
The screen play is co-written by Francis Ford Coppola and Based upon the two books "Patton: Ordeal and Triumph" by Ladislas Farago and "A Soldier's Story" by General Oman N. Bradley. And acted by George C. Scott. This paints the picture of the Patton that we all know.

From the initial speech to the "I had a dream last Night" recounting of the Napoleon campaign, this film holds your attention. Patton is larger than life, and George C. Scott is larger than life in this larger than life movie.

We follow Patton through his WWII carrier. The focus is on Patton more than the war. We can feel with him as he remembers his past lives and we feel as though we were there with him. This is emphasized by revisiting Zama where Roman Scipio Africanus defeated Hannibal. If you ever get a chance you need to look it up.

We know that very war is different but we learn from history, and Patton is history. By the way the film is just down right fun to watch.

In 1970, two films juxtaposed each other. "Patton" was an unlikely winner of eight Oscars. The pacifist Scott for all practical purposes took his Buck Turgidson character and refined him into the real-life Patton. In interviews, Scott said he found his research of Patton revealed an unbalanced man, but on screen Scott nailed him as the vainglorious, brilliant, driven warmonger he was. Steiger was offered the role first but turned it down because it glorified war. Vietnam was absolutely at its apex. It was very surprising that Hollywood would make such a film at that time. But director Frankin Schaffner had served under Patton, and after making "The Planet of the Apes" had the clout to call his shots. The film did not get America behind the war, but it did cause Nixon to start bombing Cambodia because the Patton story convinced him to get tough. The screenwriter, oddly enough, was Francis Ford Coppola, who may have done himself a turn. Coppola was no war lover, and wrote "Patton" as a man obsessed with war ("God help me, I love it so"), deluded by visions of Napoleonic grandeur mixed with Episcopalian Christianity and karmic reincarnation. The intent may have been to show a psychotic military man, to de-mask his heroism, and this may have been what prompted Scott to play it. From page to screen there are virtually no changes, but if Coppola was trying to put down the military by showing Patton's human warts, the result was a brilliant work that now is one of, if not the most, conservative pictures ever made. Watching "Patton" stirs wonderful pride in two countries (Great Britain is prominent in the film) that were tough enough to stand up to the Nazis when the rest of the world cowered in victimhood. Karl Malden's Omar Bradley is Patton's perfect foil, as is the Bernard Law Montgomery character. The film saved Coppola, who was about to be fired as "The Godfather" director. When he won the Oscar for "Patton", it gave him too much clout to get the axe.

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.
