Strategic Air Command (1955)

Strategic Air Command (1955), directed by Anthony Mann.

A ballplayer is called back to service to fly planes for Uncle Sam.

The bad news: it's a dull story, an overly-earnest ad for Cold War bomber command. It was probably dull in 1955.

Slightly better: a chance to get the band back together. Director Mann, James Stewart, June Allyson, cinematographer William H. Daniels and others returning from The Glenn Miller Story (1954) (also dull).

Most importantly: this a gorgeous Blu-ray from Olive Films, a real catalog title demo disc. Beautiful aviation photography of big planes and a lovely presentation. Just stunning color and detail.
