(Hollywood Reporter) “Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War” aims to “prove to the viewer that he was silenced because his views didn’t go along with the status quo,” says the filmmaker.

A film in the works now and aiming for a release date next year makes the case that Gen. George Patton, who died three months after the end of World War II, was assassinated, perhaps by the KGB, due to his outspoken opposition to Communism and the former USSR.

The feature-length documentary, dubbed Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War, is from writer-director Robert Orlando. The filmmaker’s most recent movie, A Polite Bribe, is about the Apostle Paul and set for release through VCI/Cinedigm on Tuesday.
