Patton is a three-dimensional bronze bust of World War II field general George S. Patton who
wrote poetry, fired pistols at strafing fighter planes, and loved the United States of America with a lofty and
historical zeal. Tracing his personal rivalries with such generals as Rommel and Montgomery,
his problematic treatment of his own men, and his nearly runaway contempt for diplomacy, the
film triumphs as an enduring portrait of a complex and larger-than-life figure.
