Let me say that whereas I am not a fan of General Patton as a man, as a general his military zeal and his tactical and strategic brilliance borders on legendary.  And it is that word—legendary—that best explains Franklin J. Schaffner’s 1970 biopic masterpiece Patton.

In an driven, incendiary acting tour-de-force that is equaled only by a handful of great performances throughout film history, George C. Scott’s portrayal of the famous and controversial World War II general is also legendary.
