About this Episode

Releasing to critical acclaim, this film took home seven Academy Awards, including Best Actor (George C. Scott), and
Best Director (Franklin J. Schaffner).

It is often at the top of “best war films” lists, and a favorite of film buffs. It follows Patton's various commands through their campaigns in North Africa and the invasion of Europe in the latter part of World War II.

It’s widely considered one of George C. Scott’s best performances, and he definitely storms his way through the film. But is the portrayal of General Patton historically accurate? And did we love it or hate it?
