    You are a son of a bitch

    Sat thru it at the Pantages in Jollywood when it came out.

    Midnite show, had to get up and open the gas station at 7AM.

    Ugh.

    Scott was great.

    ^^ I do too; I can still see that poor russky interpreter squirming as Patton said “You tell him that, tell him word for word.”

    ^ Yeah, that’s Laurence Herder, a Canadian who played Russians a lot.
    One of the reasons I like that film so much is that it has a large cast
    but with only a handful of guys I recognize as actors.
    Still don’t know who the Russian general was
