Patton (also released as "Patton: A Salute to a Rebel" and as "Patton: Lust for Glory", and it was perhaps originally entitled "Patton: Blood and Guts"), the 1970 Franklin J. Schaffner (winner of the Best Director Academy Award for this film) World War II (WWII) military officer general biographical action thriller ("'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...' General George S. Patton, Jr."; "From a New York Times Editorial, Dec. 22, 1945: 'Long before the war ended, Patton was a legend. Spectacular, swaggering, pistol packing, deeply religious and violently profane... easily moved to anger... easily moved to tears... he was a strange combination of fire and ice.'"; "Screen story and screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola and Edmund H. North"; "Based on factual material from 'Patton: Ordeal and Triumph' by Ladislas Farago and 'A Soldier's Story' by Omar N. Bradley"; winner of the Best Picture Academy Award) starring George C. Scott (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film; in the title role as "General George S. Patton"; of course, Scott refused the Oscar, citing a dislike of the voting process and the concept of acting competitions!), Karl Malden ("as General Omar N. Bradley"), Michael Bates, Ed Binns, Stephen Young, James Edwards, and Tim Considine. Note that when the movie was first released, the title was "Patton: A Salute to a Rebel", and the movie received an "M" rating. But the title was quickly shortened to simply "Patton", and during that time, the MPAA had changed the rating system, where "M" became "GP", so the posters that were printed with the new title had the new "GP" rating on them. Most collectors consider both versions to be from the "first release", but technically, the ones with the longer title and the "M" rating are from the very first release!
