About the Event
World War II saga of a general sent to command an 8th Air Force bomber unit riddled with low morale. Utilizing footage of actual aerial combat, this Memorial Day tribute is a realistic drama that poses the question: How much can a leader identify with his men and still be able to push them to their limit…but not beyond? Directed by Henry King, and scripted by aviators Bierne Lay, Jr. and Sy Bartlett from their novel, this is one of the unforgettable all-time classics. Jagger received a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. 20th Century-Fox. 1949. 132 mins.
