TWELVE O'CLOCK HIGH (1949)



La Fox pensó esta obra maestra del género bélico en una combinación creativa de alto vuelo. Henry King en la dirección (tal vez junto a “The Gunfighter”su mejor film), Gregory Peck en el rol pricipal y Darryl Zanuck como productor. A King se lo conoce como el director más parecido a John Ford, esto no se debe tanto al estilo visual, sino más bien a la temática dominante que tiene que ver con la camaradería castrense y a las relaciones en la vida militar. Quizás este sea el film en el que King supera la comparación para consagrarse como autor independiente de las similitudes fordianas. No porque no las roce sino porque las potencia hasta la superación misma.
Es la segunda guerra mundial y los alemanes mantienen la ocupación en Francia, hay una división aérea de bombarderos que ha perdido la esperanza debido a la presión, el estrés y la mala suerte. Peck es un comandante que debe asumir al frente del escuadrón con el objetivo de levantar la moral. A partir de allí se suceden silencios y miradas que generan tensión. El film parece una olla a presión que esta por hervir en cualquier momento. Esto se logra con la genial puesta en escena de King, que decide dejar las batallas fuera de campo hasta que nos muestra las últimas y decisivas. Gregory Peck, que aceptó el papel luego de que John Wayne lo rechazara, comopone una de las más logradas demostraciones de liderazgo. La relación entre los personajes es vertical y se asemeja a los movimientos de un juego de ajedrez. Con el tiempo podemos decir que Stalney Kubrick haría con “Paths of glory” una película similar pero pesimista. Un dato curioso es que muchos de los veteranos de guerra aprecian este film como el más verosímil acerca de lo que fue la vida interna en un cuartel en la segunda guerra, el primer avión es estrellado realmente por el doble de reisgo Paul Mantz. También hubo una serie de televisión en la década del '60 adaptada del film dirigida por Richar Donner.

They're so heart-meltingly cute that they can instantly bring a huge smile upon your face and, if to their baby cuteness you add some baby fashion chicness, too.
