2. What could we know about Timothy Carey besides his height ?
During the movieing of Paths of Glory, Carey was reportedly disruptive and tried to draw more attention to his character. Due to this behavior, a scene in which Carey and the other actors were served a duck dinner as a final meal before execution took 57 takes to complete. Carey then faked his own kidnapping to generate personal publicity, which prompted Kubrick and producer James B. Harris to fire him. As a result, the movie does not depict the three condemned soldiers during the battle scene, and a double was used during a scene in which a priest hears Carey’s character’s confession. The scene was movieed with the double’s back to the camera.
