Twelve OClock High (1949)
This gritty World War II action drama is regarded as one of the most realistic portrayals of the heroics and perils of war.
Convinced an Air Force commander (Gary Merrill) is at the breaking point, Brigadier General Frank Savage (Gregory Peck) takes over the commanders struggling bomber group. Kind and understanding but no pushover, Savage adopts a crushing discipline to revitalize the demoralized troop.
At first resentful and rebellious, the flyers gradually change as Savage guides them to amazing feats. But the stress of command soon takes its toll and the weary general reaches his own breaking point.
Gregory Peck described Twelve OClock High as a film of daring and exceptional honesty and the role of General Savage as the most satisfying Ive ever played.
Twelve OClock High is also one of the first Hollywood films to deal with the psychological effects of war on combatants.
Starring Gregory Peck, Hugh Marlowe, and Gary Merrill. Peck won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor, 1950.
