The Road to Glory is a 1936 dramatic film depiction of World War I trench warfare in France directed by Howard Hawks, starring Fredric March, Warner Baxter, Lionel Barrymore, and June Lang, and produced by 20th Century Fox. It is vaguely inspired by Roland Dorgelès’ 1919 novel and Raymond Bernard’s 1932 Les Croix de Bois (Wooden Crosses), though the film credits don’t mention them.
