The film documents the story of General George S. Patton (George C. Scott) during World War II, beginning with his taking charge of demoralized American forces in North Africa after the disastrous Battle of the Kasserine Pass. He participates in the invasion of Sicily and races against the equally egotistical British General Montgomery to capture the Sicilian port of Messina. After he beats Montgomery into the city, he is relieved of command for slapping a shell-shocked soldier in an Army hospital. This incident, along with his tendency to speak his mind to the press, get the general in trouble with Washington and he is sidelined from the Invasion of Normandy. Later, he begs his former subordinate, General Omar Bradley (Karl Malden), for a command before the war ends. He is given the U.S. Third Army, and distinguishes himself by sweeping across France and later relieving the vital town of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge. Later, Patton smashes through the German "West Wall" and drives into Germany itself. The movie depicts some of Patton's more controversial actions, e.g., his remarks following the fall of Germany, comparing many average Nazis to American Republicans and Democrats. He also believed in reincarnation, while remaining a devout Christian, as shown in the film. Although he is shown to be a military genius, the film does not try to conceal the darker, more elitist and brutal side of Patton. Patton won 7 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Scott, an award that he refused.
