ACE IN THE HOLE / PATHS OF GLORY

Synopsis:

Thursday, September 20th @ 7:30pm


ACE IN THE HOLE

1951, Paramount, 111 min, Dir: Billy Wilder

Kirk Douglas is withering as the embittered, alcoholic reporter looking for his piece of the pie -- when the story of a man trapped in a cave-in falls into his lap, he exploits it to the hilt.




PATHS OF GLORY

1957, MGM Repertory, 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.
