‘Glory’ blazes back onto the big screen

“Glory,” the 1989 film directed by Edward Zwick about the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, the Union Army’s second African-American regiment in the Civil War, will return to the big screen at Bainbridge Cinemas for a 30th anniversary screening at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 24.

The movie stars Matthew Broderick as Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, the regiment’s commanding officer, and Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes, and Morgan Freeman as fictional members of the 54th.

The screenplay by Kevin Jarre was based on the books “Lay This Laurel” by Lincoln Kirstein and “One Gallant Rush” by Peter Burchard, and the personal letters of Shaw.

It was nominated for five Academy Awards and won three, including Best Supporting Actor for Washington. It won many other awards, too, including the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, the Golden Globe Awards, the Kansas City Film Critics Circle, the Political Film Society, and the NAACP Image Awards.
