    Description

    Twelve O'Clock High (20th Century Fox, 1949). Insert (14" X 36"). An intense psychological drama, Gregory Peck plays General Frank Savage, a tough-as-nails commander during World War II who takes over a bomber group suffering from fatigue and low morale. Although initially unpopular, Savage manages to turn his unit around, making them a strong fighting force once more. The movie won acclaim among actual bomber pilots, as they felt that this movie was the only accurate depiction of their struggles during the war. Additionally, it garnered several Academy Awards, including a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Dean Jagger, as well as nominations for Best Actor (Peck) and Best Picture. Several military colleges still use this film in Leadership Training Courses as an example of an effective leadership style. This striking insert, with its dramatic image of Gregory Peck, shows fold wear and a corner crease in the bottom left, but has an overall very attractive and presentable appearance. Very Fine.
