Product Description:

Stewart plays Lt. Col. Robert "Dutch" Holland, a suburban-dwelling baseball player with a military past who is recalled to Air Force duty when the Strategic Air Command finds itself with a few pilots too few in the midst of the Cold War. With the impending threat of nuclear aggression from the USSR, Holland returns to service without hesitation, but at the price of considerable stress on his wife (June Allyson). This flight adventure about the bravery and commitment of bomber pilots also acts as a rousing piece of American propaganda from a closed chapter in U.S. military history. Academy Award Nominations: Best Motion Picture Story.

Plot Synopsis:

An ace third baseman for the St. Louis Cardinals returns to the Air Force to become an elite fighter pilot. Although he originally thought of the assignment as temporary, he soon realizes -- despite his pregnant wife's misgivings -- that in attending to his nation's security, he has discovered his dream calling.


Production Notes:

  • Additional lyricist: Major Tommy Thomson, Jr. ("The Air Force Takes Command")
  • Jimmy Stewart was himself an Air Force Pilot during the Second World War, and he remained in the Reserves for many years after.
