"A Masterpiece...One Of The Finest Casts Put On A Motion Picture Screen." -Hollywood Reporter
This gritty World War II action drama starring Gregory Peck, OscarÂ® winner Dean Jagger, Hugh Marlow, Gary Merrill and Millard Mitchell is seen as one of the most realistic portrayals of the heroics and perils of war. Convinced an Air F-rce commander is at the breaking point, Brigadier General Savage (Peck) takes over his struggling bomber group. At first resentful and rebellious, the flyers gradually change as Savage guides them to amazing feats. But the stress of command soon takes its tool and the weary general reaches his own breaking point.
Authentic aerial battle footage and numerous acclaimed performances make Twelve O'Clock High a credible, stirring tale of courage and sacrifice.
