Due to a few comments at a press conference, he is relieved of his command of the Third Army by General Eisenhower. After receiving the news, he is approached by General Bradley, who lauds Patton for his efforts. Patton then takes his dog for a walk into fields of Bavaria, lamenting that "all glory is fleeting."

Factual error: The British drum major in the Messina parade gives the order "Forward March". This is only used by the British forces when troops are marking time. If at the halt, as here, the order is "Quick March".

Question: Is it just me or does this film seem to have some definite homosexual undertones when it comes to Patton? He dresses flamboyantly, wears lots of jewelry, designs uniforms, caresses his dead staff member, kisses a soldier tenderly after a battle. Did the writers do this intentionally and/or were there rumors about Patton's sexual orientation?

Answer: It's just you.

Answer: In real life Patton spoke with a high pitched effeminate voice, not the gruff George C Scott type of voice.
