Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 04 Episode 07-10: The Umbara arch and Paths of Glory (1957) parallels.
I would be surprised if the writers of these episodes weren’t inspired by this movie. Be sure to watch both! Paths of Glory is one of the best war films ever made, the the Umbara arch of The Clone Wars is one of the finest hour and a half of cartoon television I’ve seen.
I apologize for not being entirely honest with you. I apologize for not revealing my true feelings. I apologize, sir, for not telling you sooner that you’re a degenerate, sadistic old man. And you can go to hell before I apologize to you now or ever again!
