2nd – Henry King’s – Twelve O’Clock High – 1949 – 35mm
“The films Henry King made with Gregory Peck offer a critique of ultra-masculinity in adverse conditions. We don’t see much of the war, or even hear about it. Instead, the conflict’s heavy toll is revealed through gestures, unspoken words, the sweat on the forehead of stammering men. No other fiction film has so precisely translated the war into the neurotic behavior of suffering soldiers” – Cinema Ritrovato
