1970 Patton is a 1970 biographical war film about U.S. General George S. Patton during World War II.
He probably would have been retired from the army, and not been in the Korean War. Patton graduated from West Point in 1909, and would have been in his early 60s. MacArthur was even older, but was a unique case.
M48 Patton tanks entered US service after the Korean War and fought in the Vietnam War. The first of Patton series tanks, the M46 Patton, served in the Korean War. The M46 was simply a modified M26 Pershing tank. The M47 Patton never saw combat with the US military.
The war tank called the Patton , after the general George Patton, was manufactured in the U.S.a , round about late 1950s and early 60s.

War was his profession, he loved his profession, and was good at it.

WWII GENERAL George S. Patton died at the age of 60 in 1945. Vietnam War GENERAL George S. Patton died at the age of 80 in 2004. (Son of WWII Gen Patton).
Patton firmly believed in being born to fulfil a great destiny and to crush the military enemies of the US wherever they may appear. Of course there has to be a greater being to mark him for his destiny. Patton also talked about several warlord's lives he lived in the past and Patton just being one more incarnation of his ancient spirit. In the end its always "Patton vs the enemy" with Patton winning, who cares about God, gods or reincarnations? Patton certainly did not!
