      "My glasses fogged up,
           but I think I got a piece of one."

                       "Theirs, or ours?"


     In WWII, Gregory Peck, in one of his finest performances, is a by-the-book Air Force general who reluctantly concludes that an old friend, Gary Merrill, has become too emotionally attached to the men in his bomber crews to effectively command them. The commanding general of the Eighth Air Force bomber command sends Peck to replace Merrill, nearly causing a mutiny of the pilots and air crews who must fly the high-risk missions against Nazi targets on the Continent. Peck wins them over but in a short time falls into the same trap that ended his predecessor's command - "over identification" with his men.


     This classic film shows the gritty reality of the American daylight bombing campaign over Europe that produced the highest casualty rate of any U.S. military branch in the war. A later TV series was based on this film.

1949, Directed by Henry King
