Correct response: What is Patton?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
With a screenplay by Francis Ford Coppola and Edmund H. North and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner, Patton is a 1970 biopic about American World War II general George S. Patton, with George C. Scott in the title role. The film won 7 Oscars, including Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, and Best Actor for Scott, who famously refused the honor, citing a dislike of the Oscar voting process and acting “competitions”. The “Ten-hut, be seated” line comes from the film’s opening monologue about how “Americans love a winner” and was originally delivered to the United States Third Army.
