Trivia

Somewhat perversely, this film was re-released in early 1971 following the announcement of Oscar nominations on a double bill with a very different war film, also from 20th Century-Fox and a Oscar nominee for best picture: MASH (1970).


Quotes

Patton: Now I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country.


Goofs

When Patton arrives at his HQ in North Africa, right before he puts on his three stars, he removes his helmet, coat, and goggles. When he removes his goggles from around his neck, he simply tugs on them and the strap comes undone, revealing they were just a prop.


Crazy Credits

One of the very, very few Twentieth Century-Fox films in which that company's logo is not shown at all, beginning or end. The film simply begins with the opening speech, and the opening Fox logo is replaced with an in-credit text-only notice after the speech. However, recent television showings have added the logo (not on DVD prints), and the addition is obviously spliced in from another piece of film.


Alternate Versions

The IMDb credits reflect those in a version of the film once broadcast by Cinemax and listed in the AFI Catalogue. Another version in letterbox format (once broadcast by AMC) omit and change some of the credits. Omitted are: credits for Alex Weldon, Joe Canutt and Pacific Title. Changed credits are all in the Sound Department, where Don J. Bassman, 'Theodore Soderberg', Murray Spivack and Douglas O. Williams are credited simply for 'sound." Whether this was a re-released version is uncertain.
