Movie Info & Cast


Fathom Events, TCM and Tristar Pictures bring Glory to select cinemas nationwide for a special 30th anniversary showing for two days only and includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies. The heart-stopping story of the first black regiment to fight for the North in the Civil War, GLORY stars Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman. Broderick and Elwes are the idealistic young Bostonians who lead the regiment; Freeman is the inspirational sergeant who unites the troops; and Denzel Washington, in an Oscar®- winning performance (1989, Best Supporting Actor), is the runaway slave who embodies the indomitable spirit of the 54th Regiment of Massachusetts. This truly classic American Civil War Film that is sure to reach you to your core.

  • Many of the first shots were taken from the 125th anniversary reenactment of the Battle of Gettysburg in 1988. Up to 15,000 participants took part. The scenes filmed at the Gettysburg Reenactment were fused into the Battle of Antietam scene which was filmed in Mcdonough, Georgia. Some shots show the browner dry summer background of Pennsylvania in 1988, others show the greener spring background of Georgia in 1989.

Being that it was the 30th Anniversary it would be restored or a better print to make it worth while. Nope, was like watching a worn out VHS version

Glory is, without question, one of the best movies ever made about the American Civil War.
