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 tells Bradley he has been reprimanded, there are three flags at the same level, the 7th Army flag on the observer's left (the flag's right), the U.S. flag in the center, and then Patton's 3-star flag. The U.S. and 7th Army flags should be switched, putting the U.S. flag in the position of honor.


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 , and Pacific Title. Changed credits are all in the Sound Department, where , 'Theodore Soderberg', and are credited simply for 'sound." Whether this was a re-released version is uncertain.
