George C. Scott as Patton
I recently watched a brief clip of George C. Scott as Patton, giving his famous speech in front of a huge American flag. While I have great admiration for the power of his oratory and the historical value of the speech (which was based on an actual event!), one thought kept running through my head:
"This is a strange way for a grown man to dress."
(I have the same thought when I see modern-day Generals testifying before congress...)
