Paths Of Glory
Paths of Glory

This is one of the most powerful anti-war movies ever made, and established Stanley Kubrick as one of the great directors of his generation.

Kubrick also co-wrote the screenplay with Calder Willingham and Jim Thompson, which was adoped from a novel by Humphrey Cobb.

The story of three French soldiers, courtmartialled for cowardice in the trenches of World War One France, sees a searing performance by a compassionate Kirk Douglas (Colonel Dax), and an equally excellent performance by Adolphe Menjou (General George Broulard) as an inhuman monster.

Photography was by Georg Krause, and music was by Gerald Fried. No Oscars seemed scant reward for all the makers of this wonderfully moving film.
