GUEST,Lighter Origins: 'Wayfaring Stranger' in film '1917' (20) RE: Origins: 'Wayfaring Stranger' in film '1917' 02 Feb 20

Thread drift; disregard as necessary:

Kubrick's "Paths of Glory" is a magnificent film.

You can see its influence on "1917." Kubrick has a very long tracking shot of Kirk Douglas walking down the trench toward the viewer (a predecessor of Mendes's "single take" illusion).

And, in "1917," the singing in the forest to the silent troops paying rapt attention recalls the penultimate scene of "Paths."
