9-24-10: Paths of Glory

September 23, 2010 at 4:39 pm Leave a comment

Humphrey Cobb’s 1935 novel Paths of Glory inspired the legendary film director Stanley Kubrick to make his classic film of the same title in 1957.  That film and novel have inspired one of this generation’s finest film makers and writers, Baltimore’s own David Simon.

Simon is, of course, the creative force behind The Wire, Generation KillThe Corner, and more.  His latest project is HBO’s Treme. Simon has written an  introduction to a re-issue of Paths of Glory, recently published by Penguin Classics.

Saturday night, David Simon will introduce the film at a special screening sponsored by the Maryland Film Festival.

Tom Hall talks to David Simon and Maryland Film Festival director Jed Dietz about Paths of Glory.
