Thread: Paths To Glory

    Paths To Glory

    This will probably be the oldest movie I start a thread about.

    In my quest to learn about World War One, I bought this one based on its award recommendations and a glowing report or two from some of you.

    It's a black and white film starring Kirk Douglas (yeah, that's "Romancing the Stone and Basic Instinct's Michael Douglas' father - and they look and sound exactly alike).

    Douglas Sr. plays a lawyer turned combat officer in the French army that's locked in combat in the trenches with the Germans.

    A superior officer looking to advance his career, orders an ill-fated charge against "the Ant Hill" (a fortified German location) and many of the men are slaughtered by machine guns. Those that survive to retreat are lucky that they did - however the superior commander wants to execute 3 to set an example against acting cowardly. Kirk Douglas' characer returns to his law profession to defend them in a military court martial.

    There's plenty of combat on the battlefield and in the courtroom to make me see why this film is so highly acclaimed. It's only a 1 1/2 hour movie as well - but you're seriously swept along for the ride.

    I want to thank the guys who recommended it and encourage you to watch and discuss it. Good picture.

    You would be correct. I'll see if I can still edit my post, if not I'll request Mod-help here.

    UPDATE: ATTENTION MODERATORS - could you change the title of this thread to PATHS OF GLORY?

    Thank you. The powers that be will no doubt get a kick out of my needing their help on something.
