A Gathering of Eagles

A Gathering of Eagles is a 1963 film about the U.S. Air Force during the Cold War and the pressures of command. The plot is patterned after the World War II film Twelve O'Clock High, which producer-screenwriter Sy Bartlett also wrote, with elements also mirroring Above and Beyond and Toward the Unknown, films written by his collaborator, Beirne Lay, Jr.. The film was directed by Delbert Mann. Rock Hudson plays a United States Air Force officer, Colonel, Jim Caldwell, a Strategic Air Command B-52 wing commander. He must shape up his wing and men to pass a grueling operational readiness inspection that the previous commander had failed and for which he had been relieved of his command. ... more on Wikipedia
