The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell

Rated TBC by the BBFC


In the 1920s, an American colonel accuses the War Department of criminal negligence for denying the air force the funding it needs - but the powers-that-be still regard aircraft as an irrelevant part of the military, and respond by putting him on trial. Oscar-nominated courtroom drama, starring Gary Cooper and Rod Steiger, with Ralph Bellamy and Elizabeth Montgomery.
