Synopsis: 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 its Oscars went to George C. Scott for his triumphant portrayal of 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 outmaneuvered Rommel in Africa, and after D-Day led his troops in an unstoppable campaign across Europe. But he was rebellious as well as brilliant, and as "Patton" shows with insight and poignancy, his own volatile personality was one enemy he could never defeat.
