Actor George C. Scott delivers an encore performance of his most famous character: Lt. Gen. George S. Patton Jr. Just as the original "Patton" was based in part on Ladislas Farago's biography "Patton: Ordeal and Triumph," so too is the sequel based on Farago's second installment of the same title.It is ironic, perhaps that Scott seems tired in this follow-up role and does not deliver a tour de force comparable to his original performance. Then again, the real life Patton was also tired: relieved of command of his beloved Third Army for not being what today would be termed "politically correct," and instead placed in command of a "paper army" whose mission was to write the history of the Second WorldWar. Disgruntled with the turn his military career had taken, Patton was to return home, hang up his ivory-handled pistols for good and write a tell all memoir. A day of pheasant hunting in Germany was all that seperated Patton the soldier from Patton the civilian. The out-spoken general never made it. He suffered a broken neck en route in a silly fender-bender with an army 6 x 6 and died of complications twelve days later. In spite of Scott's subdued portrayal of Patton II, the scenes are superb; the supporting cast top-notch; and the story-line, including the usual amount of dramatic license, holds true to the facts. Throughout the film, the viewer is treated to flashbacks memories of Patton's earlier life as a child, as a young junior officer, and themes the first "Patton" dared not touch, such as Patton's supposed wartime affair with his wife's niece, a woman half the general's age. Unlike the first "Patton," these flashbacks give the film a true biographical feel.Read more ›

I debated about how I wanted to rate this DVD. On the one hand the movie is very good but the quality of the picture and sound is very, very poor. This was a made for TV movie on CBS many years ago and to be honest this DVD looked like it could have been recorded right off TV or from a second generation or more VHS tape. I knew I was in trouble when I saw Brentwood put this out. I had bought a few other TV show movies made into DVD's by them that were equally horrendous in quality. Sometimes content was even missing as if they went to the bathroom during a commercial and got back too late to start recording again. The poor picture and sound quality is only magnified on a widescreen TV and good sound system. The picture even had a tendency to shutter which makes me think all the more it was made from a VHS tape, and a poor one at that. Its too bad an otherwise outstanding movie was torpedoed by a bad transfer. DVD's often have special features and all you get here is a bad bio of George C. Scott set to music that must have come off a record player. Buyer beware.

Anyone wanting to see "Patton" Part II in this film will be very disappointed; the films are different in pacing, outlook, and genre, and it is to George C. Scott's credit that he could portray both parts with equal skill, and perhaps this one was the hardest, to keep our interest (and I found it to be a fascinating film) while lying paralyzed in bed.

In the 1970 "Patton", the general was in his prime and at his best, with a sense of purpose...once the war was won, his reason for living came to an end, and he could not handle the political aspects of "winning the peace", with the constant pressure of having to present the "politically correct" stance towards the media; in many ways this is a timely film to watch, as the reconstruction phase of Germany was similar to present day Iraq, with chaos and some of the former regime clinging on to remnants of power, and a media bent on finding fault with the process.

After a tragic car accident, in which General Patton was paralyzed from the neck down, it was a matter of waiting out the final hours. The script by William Luce is poignant and often poetic, and the acting by the entire cast excellent. The two women in his life are played with sensitivity, his wife by Eva Marie Saint, and mistress by Kathryn Leigh Scott. Many scenes are recalled from his youth in flashback (Ron Berglas plays the young Lt. Patton), some of it quite touching.

Others of note in the cast are Murray Hamilton as his good friend Gen. "Hap" Gay, Ed Lauter as Dr. Lt. Col. Paul Hill, and Richard Dysart as Gen. Eisenhower.

George C. Scott returns as George S. Patton in this sequal to Patton. The movie starts after World War II and shows how he could not adjust to his peacetime role as military governor of Bavaria. Then he gets in more trouble when he lobbies for war against the Soviet Union and gets stripped of his command. And their is the mystery surrounding Patton's death.
George C. Scott does a great job in his portrayal of one of the great military leaders of the 20th century. I think it is a good buy for people who like Patton or who like movies dealing with World War II.
