Overview
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.

Easter Eggs
20th Century Fox Home Video has added some material on the release of the George C. Scott classic 'Patton' without telling anyone, it seems.

On the second disc of the package, after the isolated score is finished, you will get to hear what sounds like outtakes from the recording session for the soundtrack with composer Jerry Goldsmith. Following these outtakes multiple radio spots from 1970 come on for you to listen to.

By now, most of you have certainly also noticed that the film itself is actually 16x9 enhanced, although it is not advertised as such on the packaging.
