Product Description

Amazon.ca

The wartime memories of surviving World War II bomber squadrons were still crystal clear when this acclaimed drama was released in 1949--one of the first postwar films out of Hollywood to treat the war on emotionally complex terms. Framed by a postwar prologue and epilogue and told as a flashback appreciation of wartime valor and teamwork, the film stars Gregory Peck in one of his finest performances as a callous general who assumes command of a bomber squadron based in England. At first, the new commander has little rapport with the 918th Bomber Group, whose loyalties still belong with their previous commander. As they continue to fly dangerous missions over Germany, however, the group and their new leader develop mutual respect and admiration, until the once-alienated commander feels that his men are part of a family--men whose bravery transcends the rigors of rigid discipline and by-the-book leadership. The film's now-classic climax, in which the general waits patiently for his squad to return to base--painfully aware that they may not return at all--is one of the most subtle yet emotionally intense scenes of any World War II drama. With Peck in the lead and Dean Jagger doing Oscar-winning work in a crucial supporting role, this was one of veteran director Henry King's proudest achievements, and it still packs a strong dramatic punch. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Gregory Peck is probably one of the most versatile actors of all time. He can play a good guy or a bad guy equally well. "Twelve O'clock High" is an informative historical piece that shows the trials facing the early stages of the American bomber offensive operating out of England in WW2. It does not feature a lot of action sequences but what it does show is some interesting real footage shot over Fortress Europe by both the Americans and Germans. As the Group Commander Peck must find a way to motivate his crews to carry on in the face of the severe danger of not returning from missions that are badly needed to win the war but so very costly. A very well done movie in all respects.

This is a classic movie, lots of story, lots of drama, just no airplane action! Oh there is the odd stock footage of planes dropping bombs, but it's not like modern airforce movies where most of the movie takes place on the airplane. This movie takes place on the base in the offices and the meeting rooms. Remember, this is a 1949 movie, don't expect too much in the way of effects! Gregory Peck does take off on one bombing run, but you don't see much at all. I don't think they knew how to fake the bombing on camera, or even get the camera into the plane!

If you like drama and people talking all of the time, (and Gregory Peck) this is for you!

Among favourite movies of the past is this one. Even though it can be seen on movie channels on TV a personal copy is needed for those times when we need to remember or experience for the first time the opening scene of the abandoned airfield. What follows is the toughening up process of a time in WWII when young men joined up to become pilots and members of air crews. Far from home and tired out by failed bombing raids they need someone to restore their courage and faith in themselves. That is undertaken by the ever-impressive Gregory Peck- a Super Star in a Super Movie.

My father, a b-17 bomber pilot, flew 52 missions out of England (Bassingbourn) during WWII. He spoke very little about his war-time experiences, but he said that this was the closest that Hollywood ever came to capturing what it was like for the B-17 bomber squadrons during WWII. It is a great film about human beings under extraordinary stress, making extremely difficult choices and living with their consequences - but most especially it is a moving portrayal of the complexities of leadership and friendship, and the trust needed to get others to do difficult, if not impossible things.

The 918th Bombardment Group of the U.S. Eighth Air Force is known as the hard-luck group. Gen. Frank Savage (Gregory Peck) does not believe in luck and chalks it down to attitude and discipline due to their leader getting too evolved with the men.

The general plans to take a different tact. We watch as it is applied and the results. You may pretty much have guessed the steps and outcome as there have been several movie of this type.

This movie however is exceptional good at the acting and story.

I was disappointed when the DVD version of this film was released. I saw it in theaters in 1949 (probably 10 times)and still recall several missing scenes that are important to the plot. When the DVD came out I was excited thinking that surely they would have been restored in this format without the space constraints of VHS. I was wrong. The current cut, for example, does not explain the significance of the Toby mug that Dean Jagger finds in a London shop and replaces on the airbase officers' club mantlepiece. There are others, such as what happens to the young navigator and why. Obviously, I think this is one of the greatest war movies of all time. I just hope someday a director's cut is released with all the missing scenes restored. It's still worth buying but the film is incomplete without the missing scenes.

I'd seen this film on broadcast TV growing up but bought the DVD and watched it several more times after spending hours interviewing a B-17 bombardier a couple of years ago for a documentary film project. My subject flew 17 missions and was wounded, shot down and captured on the ground in Germany in 1944. He had a detailed memory of his experience as a Mid Western boy, volunteering for the Army Air Force, going through training in the States and flying to Britain to serve in combat. I asked him which film, if any, portrayed his experience in the war the best. He flat out said, "12 O'Clock High". And when I asked him what he had feared most, he said, "I was afraid of not doing my job. I was afraid of letting my crew mates down. I was afraid that if I failed, somebody else would have to go back and try again." Several have mentioned leadership portrayed in this film. I think the regular servicemen and flying officers are well portrayed too. They knew at the time that they were flying to save someone else from that danger.
