Anthony Mann Directs James Stewart
Strategic Air Command
Directed by Anthony Mann • 1955 • United States
Starring James Stewart, June Allyson, Frank Lovejoy
Breathtaking aerial footage of Air Force bombers in flight—in glorious widescreen VistaVision no less—fuels this patriotic aviation drama, the final collaboration between James Stewart and Anthony Mann. Here, Stewart is Dutch Holland, a professional baseball player and Air Force reservist who, at the height of his career with the St. Louis Cardinals, is called back into active duty. Though his reenlistment puts a strain on his relationship with his wife (June Allyson), Dutch finds himself taking on increasingly important missions as Cold War tensions run high.
