PATHS OF GLORY

France, 1915. Amid the muddy trenches of World War I's Western Front,
French Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas) gets the dreaded order: have his men
take the seemingly impregnable "Anthill." While behind the lines, icily smiling
generals (George Macready and Adolphe Menjou), ensconced in their chateau
headquarters, play politics. But, with the troops trapped in the trenches amid
the ensuing bloodbath, Macready vows that heads  but not his  will roll. And ultimately, three men become the scapegoats in a
game of judicial murder. But as Menjou suavely explains, "One way to maintain discipline is to shoot a man now and then." Shot in
Germany after French authorities nixed the project as defamatory (the film was banned in France until 1975), Paths is one of the most
ruthlessly anti-war films ever, with Stanley Kubrick's shooting of the assault perhaps the screen's most authentic treatment of trench
warfare. A crew of 60 worked around the clock for weeks to re-create the intricate trench systems and ravaged terrain of a WWI
battleground; the set for HQ was a building actually damaged by WWII bombs; and the special effects techies discharged over a ton
of explosives in the first week of filming alone. With a screenplay by Kubrick, Calder Willingham, and cult novelist Jim Thompson,
Paths of Glory was named to the National Film Registry in 1992. (USA, 1957, 88 min., b&w, 35mm)
