The movie, not the actual guy, I don't swing that way Not that there's anything wrong with that. Anyway, as I've already said, I believe that George C. Scott's portrayal of Patton might be the greatest performance of all time. Then there's moments like these: -The opening scene. The huge American flag. The amazing speech. Quite possibly the greatest introduction to a movie ever, unquestionably one of the top 5. -The scene where Patton and Bradley go to the Carthaginian battlefield and Patton reminisces about the the things he saw there thousands of years ago. "I was here." Then there's the poem, after Patton reveals to Brad that the poet was, "me." -After Patton is informed that Rommel wasn't there for the defeat of the Africa corps, "Well I'm my favorite general and I don't like losing face." -"I believe we were discussing air superiority." If you don't know what I'm talking about, watch the movie again. -The slapping incident. Don't know if it really happened this way, but having him give the dying guy the Purple Heart right before coming to the coward was a smart move. -The very end, "All glory is fleeting." -Jerry Goldsmith's score. -Oh yeah, did I mention the fact that Scott absolutely OWNS this character?! p.s. Anybody care to explain why he turned down this Oscar?
