While "The Killing" put Stanley Kubrick on the map as a director to watch, his 1957 "Paths of Glory" marked his first large-scale effort, a powerful war-in-the-trenches WWI epic starring Kirk Douglas as morally conflicted officer of French soldiers unwilling to lead his men into certain death. Mondo's poster, designed by Jay Shaw, conveys the movie's radical disdain for the way battlefield tactics disregard the value of human life.
