I have been watching all the movies that won the Oscar for Best Picture. The next on my list was the 1970 winner, Patton, directed by Franklin J. Schaffner and starring George C. Scott and Karl Malden. This was the Oscar winner, incidentally, the year I was born.
Patton is a biopic about the famous World War II American general, George S. Patton Jr., showing high and low points from the war. In part because of the acting and in part because of the script, the film is a fascinating exploration of his character.
