for those who love Paths of Glory...
16 September 2001 | by (United States, North America) – See all my reviews

If you liked Douglas in Kubricks "Paths of Glory" then you'll be sure to love this (if you can get your hands on a copy). The story is relatively the same, Eric Douglas (Kirk's real life son) is charged with cowardice in the face of the enemy. In the position of General this time around is Eric Douglas' real life father Kirk, a stern and typically insane general that will rather watch his son die at the hands of a firing squad than have the whole army think he's a coward. I actually saw this tales from the crypt before i saw Paths of Glory. Its a real classic. If any one can find a copy let me know.
