Glory is a 1989 American drama war film directed by Edward Zwick and starring Matthew Broderick, Denzel Washington, Cary Elwes and Morgan Freeman.
It is based on the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, as told from the point of view of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw, its commanding officer during the American Civil War. The 54th regiment was one of the first formal units of the United States Army to be made up entirely of African American men.
The film was produced by Freddie Fields. The storyline was conceived from a screenplay written by Kevin Jarre, based on the personal letters of Colonel Shaw, and from a pair of novels; Lay This Laurel authored by Lincoln Kirstein and One Gallant Rush by Peter Burchard.
A joint collective effort to commit to the film's production was made by TriStar Pictures and Freddie Fields Productions. It was commercially distributed by Tri-Star Pictures theatrically in the United States. In home media format, the film was distributed by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The soundtrack composed by James Horner in conjunction with the Boys Choir of Harlem, was released on January 23, 1990.
Following the film's cinematic release, it was nominated for multiple awards, including Academy Award nominations for Best Editing and Best Art Direction. The film also won a number of awards including those from the British Academy Awards and the Golden Globes. Denzel Washington won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in his portrayal of the character Trip.
Glory premiered in theaters in limited release in the United States on December 14, 1989 and in wide release on February 16, 1990 grossing $26,828,365 in domestic ticket sales. It was considered a moderate financial success taking into account its $18 million budget costs. On June 2, 2009, the widescreen Blu-ray disc version of the film, featuring the director's commentary and deleted scenes, was released.
