Flick Pick: Twelve O'Clock High

Twelve O'clock High
(20th C. Fox, 1949)

Masterpiece production about a B-17 group in England early in WWII. Gregory Peck as the study in command, and Dean Jagger in a role that got him a Best Supporting Oscar. Not just a cracking good war story, this movie is consistently used in management classes to illustrate to the managerially tone-deaf how to motivate different types of people.

This indeed was a great film, which I was reminded by ...sure enough... being made to watch it in an MBA class on leadsership. On the plus side, even without Cary Grant, the class was less lame than Army leadership classes.
