Second of two cinema movie collaborations of actor George C. Scott
and director Franklin J. Schaffner
. The first had been Patton
(1970) around seven years earlier in 1970. That movie won seven Academy Awards including Best Picture and scoring Oscars for both Scott and Schaffner. Ironically, Patton
(1970) debuted in the same 1970 year that the Ernest Hemingway
novel "Islands in the Stream" was first published. See more
You know how much fun we had this summer? You know how much I wish we could all be here together, all the time? You know, that Davey is some brother. I was so proud of him with that fish. Dad, I know you love him the most. And that's right cause he's the best of us.
Why do you say I love him the most?
You ought to.
I've loved you the longest.
