Pic of the Day: “Paths of Glory” revisited

To celebrate the birthday anniversary of the late great Ralph Meeker, today’s pic is another from Stanley Kubrick’s Paths of Glory (1957). Here we see the three scapegoated prisoners: Pvt. Maurice Ferol (Tim), Cpl. Phillipe Paris (Meeker), and Pvt. Pierre Arnaud (Joseph Turkel).

Meeker always made a strong impact in whatever film he was in. I especially loved him as Mike Hammer in Kiss Me Deadly (1955). I will always have a soft spot for the man Tim crushed a cockroach for. He is missed.
