Paths of Glory Trailer Here is the original theatrical trailer from the First World War flick Paths of Glory (1957). Directed by Stanley Kubrick, it tells the story of inhuman French generals ordering a suicidal attack on an impregnable German position. When the attack fails, for the sake of morale and discipline, three soldiers are chosen to be executed for cowardice. One is selected randomly, another is chosen because he is 'socially undesirable,' and the third is chosen because the general has a personal issue with him. Kirk Douglas gives a great performance as regimental commander Colonel Dax who tries to stop the insanity. This film was banned in France until 1975. (It was also banned in Germany, where it was filmed, because the German government did not want to harm its diplomatic relations with France.)

This was an excellent, excellent film. If memory serves me right, wasn't one of the men to be executed, his son?

I've seen the movie at least twice, Naomi. I don't recall that. I mostly remember the execution scene where one of the condemned men collapses and they shoot him while he's strapped to a stretcher! There's also the very odd final scene with the German girl singing to the French soldiers in the cafe.
