PATHS OF GLORY
1957, Park Circus/MGM, 86 min, Dir: Stanley Kubrick

One of the most biting, potent and eloquent anti-war films ever made. During WWI, French officer Kirk Douglas finds himself in a maze of Catch-22 contradictions when he decides to defend three of his men against charges of cowardice from insane general George Macready. Masterfully shot in black-and-white and featuring stellar performances by Adolphe Menjou, Ralph Meeker and Joe Turkel. Timothy Carey’s dark and sympathetic portrayal of Private Maurice Ferol steals the show.
