Paths of Glory is the film that brought Kubrick international attention. It’s a sober and beautifully modulated account of a tragic incident based on actual events from WWI.
Three French soldiers are sentenced to death as sacrificial victims after their company fails to comply with an incompetent general’s suicidal commands. With Kirk Douglas (also as producer), Adolphe Menjou, Ralph Meeker, and Timothy Carey. (87 mins., 35mm)
