This is the screen adaptation of Arthur Miller's powerful play about greed inherent in Capitalism.

Director: Stanley Kubrick
Cast: Kirk Douglas, Ralph Meeker, Adolphe Menjou, George Macready, Timothy Carey, Joe Turkel, Wayne Morris, Richard Anderson, Peter Capell, Bert Freed, Christiane Kubrick, Jerry Hausner, Kem Dibbs, Emile Meyer, Fred Bell
This is the story of French soldiers (Ralph Meeker, Timothy Carey, and Joseph Turkel) who are court-martialed and executed during World War I despite the efforts of Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas) who unsuccessfully defends them. The three were selected after failure of the forces in a charge, and the film highlights the insanity of war.
