Special Features
We start out Disc One with the anti-piracy ad that we've all come to love and hate, but in addition to that the special features include commentary by Francis Ford Coppola and a five-minute introduction to "Patton" by Francis Ford Coppola. Disc two includes three documentaries: the 90-minute History Through The Lens "Patton: A Rebel Revisited " (can be watched as a full-length feature or as individual chapters); 47-minute Patton's Ghost Corps.; and 50-minute "The Making Of Patton," which features interviews with George C. Scott, Oliver Stone, Richard Zanuck, Jerry Goldsmith, Fred Koenekamp, director Franklin J. Schaffner, and producer Frank McCarthy, as well as behind-the-scenes footage and camera tests. Additionally, there is a production still gallery accompanied by Jerry Goldsmith's complete musical score, a behind-the-scenes gallery accompanied by an audio essay on the historical Patton, and the original theatrical trailer.
