Officially labelled as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" in 2003 by the Library of Congress, Patton is without a doubt a contender for the Cockpit USA Movie Monday hall of fame. Based on U.S. General S. Patton's experiences during WWII, this 1970 American biographical war film is the ultimate classic. Starring George C. Scott, Karl Malden, Michael Bates, and Karl Michael Vogler, directed by Franklin J. Schaffner with a script by the one and only Francis Ford Coppola and Edmund H. North - it is no wonder this movie won a phenomenal seven Academy Awards! From the opening moments which feature a monologue by George C. Scott as General Patton standing with pride in front of an American flag, to the planes of North Africa and all over Europe, Patton provides an unparalleled cinematic experience that unravels the story of the great man himself.
