Strategic Air Command

Recommended Posts

I am ex-USAF (late 70s, early 80s) and served in SAC, so i've always enjoyed this look at the "old" SAC. I was a an Air Force cop and, so, I chuckle at the old Air Policeman telling newly-arriving Stewart

"We had an orangutan get on the base once. We were all on the carpet for that one." haha. Also, I enjoyed Jimmy Stewart's performance in this flick (he became a brigadier general in the AF Reserve)...along with Harry Morgan's! I think parts of it were filmed at Carswell AFB, Texas (Fort Worth).

I agree, I always try to catch this movie when it is on. The aerial flight scenes are beautiful. And, I think it is a nice historical touch that Frank Lovejoy, the actor who plays General Hawkes, strongly resembled the real SAC Commander, General LeMay.
