Fox may stopped releasing their catalog on standard definition DVD, but they've announced their fourth hi-def release of the year with Twelve O'Clock High (Blu-Ray) expected on May 3rd.

At the height of World War II, the 918 Bomb Group suffers devastating losses and Brigadier General Frank Savage (Gregory Peck) is sent to take command. Because of his strong discipline his men resent him, and although Savage remains impersonal under heavy attack and un-relenting firefights, he becomes personally involved in their well being - a dangerous position for any leader - especially in the middle of a war!
"One of the most honest and powerful war pictures" (Life) of all time, this "thrilling, dramatic thunderbolt" (The Hollywood Reporter) "soars right up into the bright blue yonder" (Los Angeles Times)! Blending "thrilling action" with "personal drama brought to heroic heights" (The New York Times), this winner of two Academy Awards stars Gregory Peck in "the best performance of his career" (Look), a role which earned him a Best Actor Oscar nomination!
