    Can anyone who has seen this 1957 movie about WWI can tell me if any tanks are used in the movie?

    I've seen this movie at least 3 times, and I certainly don't recall any tanks, but I couldn't say for sure.

    No tanks but one of the greatest films ever made.

    There has to be a Groucho/Chico type skit in here somewhere, or maybe Who's On First:

    "Hey, in Paths of Glory, were there any tanks?"

    "No tanks."

    "I didn't offer you anything, I just asked if there were any tanks in the movie."

    "Huh? No tanks!"

    "Fine, I'll go ask someone else."

    "Boy, people today, you give-a them an answer, they don't even-a wanna listen. Tanks a lot!"

    "What? Didn't you just say there were no tanks?"

    OK, that was pretty bad. [​IMG]

    Well there definitely weren't any when Kubrick last had anything to do with it. Just don't let Spielberg loose on it, or we'll probably get digitalised tanks, planes and who knows what else.

    Bruce,

    Don't forget about the walkie-talkies. [​IMG]

    I can't say I remember any tanks in this movie, though it's been a couple years since I've watched it and, since I'm in the middle of a move, can't pull it out to look. Sorry!

    Wait a minute, I just saw A Very Long Engagement about a month ago...that might have had a shot or two of a tank. Not sure, though. And, uh, it's not on DVD yet, so I guess that's not entirely helpful.

    Thanks, Jack. [​IMG] I was in a Marx Brothers mood, as one can see from the films watched thread linked in my sig.

    I believe some vintage tanks were used in "The Battle of the Bulge" and in a couple of shots of "Patton." It always cracks me up when you see a Korean war "Patton" tank or an M60 in WWII films.

    All Quiet on the Western Front is from WWI. Maybe there are tanks in that movie. This is just a guess.
