Paths of Glory (WW1 Film Series)
(to be held in the Studio Theatre)
During World War I, commanding officer General Broulard (Adolphe Menjou) orders his subordinate, General Mireau (George Macready), to attack a German trench position, offering a promotion as an incentive. Though the mission is foolhardy to the point of suicide, Mireau commands his own subordinate, Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas), to plan the attack. When it ends in disaster, General Mireau demands the court-martial of three random soldiers in order to save face.
This World War 1 film series is co-sponsored by the Maryland World War 1 Centennial Commission and the City of Havre de Grace. Screenings take place on the 2nd Monday of the month.
