Patton

1970

Franklin J. Schaffner
Director

1971 Academy Award winner for Best film, Scott got one too, but turned it down. Astonishingly good biopic of gung-ho Patton. Malden is excellent in support too. Make up your own mind as to whether Patton or Montgomery were right in their choice of tactics. Did I mention one of Jerry Goldsmith's best ever music scores too?
