Movie Info

U.S. Col. Billy Mitchell (Gary Cooper) is a decorated World War I veteran airman frustrated by the military's mistreatment of the flying program. With military brass and many in the government still favoring battleships, Mitchell sees funding cut to aviation, resulting in the unnecessary deaths of pilots. When Mitchell publicly accuses his superiors of ineptitude, he is court-martialed. At the trial, Congressman Frank Reid (Ralph Bellamy) advises Mitchell, who faces Maj. Guillion (Rod Steiger).

    Solid if a bit slow drama of a man putting his career on the line for his what he believes rightly is the good of his country. The cast is full of great actors including an amazingly beautiful and impossibly young Elizabeth Montgomery in her first film role. She isn't totally at ease yet but delivers in her big scene.

    featuring elizabeth montgomery before she made a whole career out of twitching... but no amount of nose-twitching could save billy mitchell. gary cooper was 7 outta 10ish in his acting but his performance was a tad laid back. i saw the prosecution lawyer (bald headed bloke) in another film recently but i can't think what it was. he was good in both. i've seen otto premingers work before with the river of no return which was just as viewable as this. his movies dont seem to be masterpieces but they're all very watchable, and even re-watchable. bewitching entertainment
