A digital restoration of the 1957 Stanley Kubrick classic. A tribute to Kirk Douglas (1916-2020).
During World War I, a commanding officer orders his subordinate, General Mireau (George Macready), to attack a German trench position, offering a promotion as an incentive. Though the mission is foolish 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.
