On the latest Narrative Control podcast, I discuss the film Patton (1970) with Rob Henderson.
We talk about what it's like in 2021 trying to understand a movie released in 1970 portraying the America of the Second World War. The discussion also addresses the military's role in society; what the movie tells us about American culture during WWII and in the generation after; and divisions between elites and the masses in the US across time.
On Nixon’s obsession with the movie.
Patton on Sicilians.
You can listen to it as a podcast, or watch on YouTube below.
Merry Christmas everyone!
