Adapted from The Paul Street Boys, an autobiographical novel by Ferenc Molnar, GLORY is an unusually sensitive evocation of the pain of youth and the senselessness of war.

I am 53 years old. When I was 12 my father told me to stay home from school to see this movie on television. The movie was a tearjerker classic that every boy, girl and adult should see. Unfortunately this was the last time I ever saw it. It is listed with 5 out of 5 stars in the blockbuster movie guide and I concur. There was reportedly a remake of this film, I believe in color, but not the same title. I would love to hear of anyone who knows if either film still exists and especially if it will be shown anywhere. I'm hoping that Ted Turner has it intact in his collection for TCM. If I never see it again I at least hope all of you see it at least once. Thank you
