George C. Scott Quotes:

Bert Gordon: [to Eddie] You owe me MONEY.


Bert Gordon: You're here on a rain check and I know it. You're hangin' on by your nails. You let that glory whistle blow loud and clear for Eddie and you're a wreck on a railroad track... you're a horse that finished last. So don't make trouble, Miss Ladybird. Live and let live! While you can. I'll make it up to you.
Sarah Packard: How?
Bert Gordon: You tell me.


Paolo Maltese: And this is the girl, my fidanzata, that I am bringing home to meet my folks. Of all the women in the whole world that I can choose from to be my wife, who do I choose? An ignorant slob of a hatcheck girl who thinks Pisa - Piazza del Duomo in Pisa, Joey - is a stopping-off place between hamburger joints.

George C. Scott Facts
Campaigned for Eugene McCarthy in the 1968 Democratic primaries, and for George McGovern in the 1972 presidential election.

Best known for playing the legendary Gen. George S. Patton.

He accepted the role of Sheriff Gillespie in In the Heat of the Night (1967), according to producer Walter Mirisch's memoir "I Thought We Were Making Movies, Not History." Scott backed out when wife Colleen Dewhurst wanted him to direct her in a play on Broadway. Mirisch then offered the role to Rod Steiger, who accepted and won an Oscar. Steiger later turned down the lead in Patton (1970) that went to Scott, which brought him an Oscar.
