Product Description

One of the most heroic and inspirational leaders of World War II, General George S. Patton (George C. Scott) is seriously injured in a car accident just a few weeks after the end of the war and is not expected to survive. "The Last Days of Patton" tells the story of these last few months of the General's life and the Army Medical Corps efforts to save him. As he lies immobile in a hospital bed, surrounded by the pessimistic doctors and his worried wife, he waits for death and reminisces about his happy, younger days. Intermixed with flashbacks, the film shows Patton's earlier career as a fledging tank commander (Ron Berglas), during the First World War.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Days of Patton Review 6 Sep 2009
By Mr. S. J. Matthews VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an interesting film, it needs to be viewed after seeing the original "Patton" film, as it's a continuation of that one. Fortunately they cast George C. Scott in the title role again, otherwise it wouldn't have worked. Being based on fact makes it more interesting, as I suspect a lot of people wouldn't be aware of how he ended, and the irony of his demise at the very end of the war. Well worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suburb cinema 9 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had given up on ever obtaining this title, having enjoyed immensely the performence of Scott in Patton, his performance in this film was absolutely rivetting, and was as worthy of an oscar as the first film. Thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice try 2 Jun 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A good attempt, but it ignores his equestrian feats at the 1912 Olympics, his extensive vacations in the bocage country of Normandy in the 1920ies and his dyslexia that reduced his exam results. HIs sex life involving Marlene Dietrich is left out and Eisenhauer's virulent hatred of the Germans is ignored, which soured their relationship.
An excellent film overall, despite the flaws.

4.0 out of 5 stars Patton's last days 11 Aug 2011
By RR Waller TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I must admit bias from the beginning. George S Patton ranks as a bit of a hero and George C Scott is an actor I admire. (I have recently returned from Sicily tracing the western then eastern tank tracks.)
Dealing with the last days of the war and his role as Military Governor of Bavaria, the writers Ladislas Farago (who wrote the original book) and William Luce do not get embroiled or side-tracked into the conspiracy theories surrounding his death but play it by the official book.
Coming from a long-line of high-ranking military people, larger-than-life and a man of many facets - often apparently conflicting - and one never afraid to speak his passionate, erudite mind, he was not cut-out for military governorship and the careful diplomacy required in the immediate post-war period with our new Soviet allies.
Like the earlier "Patton", again starring George C Scott who not only looks like him but, in all that I have read, including Patton's own books, I feel sure he acted the part excellently, this film sets the post-war scene very well and is very enjoyable; being a film of its age, the sharpness, colour and sound quality do not meet modern standards but one should not expect that. Much of what it contains is well-documented elsewhere, giving it a very believable quality.
Although it stands by itself, it is best seen after viewing the first film, "Patton".

If this film whets any appetites, for those interested in Patton, the recent documentary series, "Patton 360" is worth the investment; many hours full of documentary details, original footage and dramadoc sections, it is fascinating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Below par in quality and narrative. 25 Jan 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Be careful re. this one as picture quality is no where near as good as what we have come to expect from dvds ie. not really crisp and sharp, with annoyingly, distorted wording on the final credits: certainly, not what one might expect from the Hollywood Movie makers!
As far as the film is concerned, it is a bit of an anti-climax after the film 'Patton' itself. Also, George Scott seems a little older and not so much as strong willed and assertive as he was in the first film.
Nevertheless, it is fair to say that this film is extremely cheap even when mailed from the USA, so you can hardly complain.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Last Days Of Patton 6 Mar 2011
By Brian
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The quality of the reproduction of the film was extremely poor, and more like a pirated copy.
As I note that this criticism was raised in a review in 2005 I would suggest that Amazon takes this film off its offered list as I do feel slightly ripped off.
I shall not see it again which is a pity because I think Mr Scott gives a fine performance

4.0 out of 5 stars An update on the film "Patton" 22 July 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film tells the story of his final days. There is another film that gives a different version of how he was injured and died. Interesting.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Patton 17 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even if you loved the film Patton,this is not Patton the outtakes or Patton Mk2,despite featuring George C. Scott's reprisal of his most famous role.Think long and hard before buying this one.The only action is a crash, absolutely NO battle scenes whatsoever.Most of this film is about a dying man in his hospital bed.For DIE-HARD fans of Patton,there are a couple of good quotes delivered in his old brash style,but that's it.The picture quality isn't 100% but it's more than adequate.
