Movie Matinee - Paths of Glory (1957)


July 3, 2013

Join us for a classic movie every Wednesday morning.

This week's movie is: Paths of Glory (1957). PATHS OF GLORY is a monument to the anti-human aspects of war. Lieutenant Dax’s (Kirk Douglas) regiment is set up for suicide missions and manipulated in ways that show no regard for their lives. Dax finds himself in the center of a power struggle that has nothing to do with World War I and is constantly frustrated in his attempts to do right by his men in one of the most moving studies of men in armed conflict ever to be recorded on film.

Starring Kirk Douglas, Ralph Meeker, Adolphe Menjou. MGM/UA; Directed by Stanley Kubrick. Not Rated; 87 minutes.
