We’re passed the Armistice, and everything seems to be slowing down as far as events go.  We have three movies in December on Turner Classic Movies that touch on World War I, including two that are truly classic .  Times given here are Central.

Paths of Glory (1958).  The classic Stanley Kubrick film with Kirk Douglas and Adolph Menjou.  9:15 p.m. on Monday, December 10th.

A Carol for Another Christmas (1964).  Written by Rod Serling, stars a cast that includes Sterling Hayden, Eva Maria Saint, Ben Gazzara, Peter Sellers, and Steve Lawrence.  Not strictly a World War I film, but it does have a WWI segment.  2:45 a.m. early Sunday morning, December 23rd.

Doctor Zhivago (1965).  Omar Sharif, Julie Christie, and Alec Guinness.  3:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon, December 30th.

Happy viewing!
