(1949) Tense World War II story of a U.S. B-17 bomber group based in England whose commander (Gary Merrill) is relieved for fretting over casualty rates, but the straitlaced officer (Gregory Peck) who succeeds him eventually cracks under the emotional strain of ordering men to risk their lives flying hazardous daylight missions. Director Henry King's character study of men in war has a strong supporting cast (notably Dean Jagger, Millard Mitchell, and Hugh Marlowe), a thoughtful script, and stunning wartime footage of air combat. Much psychological tension. (A-I -- general patronage). TCM (cable)
