Best Answer

The soldier that was knocked down and run over in the movie "Patton" was not a stuntman but a Spanish soldier being used as an extra. That particular scene was shot in southern Spain. Apparently the soldier stopped to cock his rifle (as is clearly seen in the film) and was accidentally knocked down. The tank driver was unaware the soldier had not gotten out of the path of the tank. The man was not hurt as the tank treads missed him by only inches. The only damage was a badly torn coat sleeve on his tunic. One very lucky individual.
