alternativelandscapes.ca/modules/map1.php The idea for the novel came from Barrlett's wife when she heard the two authors discussing German fighter tactics. When published in , the novel was hailed as "a mixture of nostalgia, sorrow and pride" and an "authentic record of the men and operations of a typical heavy bomber group. Before the movie was produced there was another film called "Command Decision", which stared Clark Gable and Walter Pidgeon, and had a similar theme as 12 O'Clock High. Sensing a good deal Fox and Paramount Studios started fighting Lay and Barrlett for the story rights.

Zanuck's job started by asking Bud Lighten to be producer and William Wellman as director. The Air Force was called in as technical advisors and also to lend support along with miltary equipment to the studio. On 3 November a synopsis had to be submited to the Pentagon for the Air Force to review. After a long back and forth battle, Col. John deRussy was assigned as technical advisor on 15 February He had a day stint as liaison officer-technical advisor and was in charge of obtaining equipment and personnel for the film.

Zanuck got rid of Lighten and Wellman, took over as producer and hired Henry King as director. The final script was complete on 30 March Casting director, Jim Ryan, had selected a large list of actors for the role of actors, and Gregory Peck was cast as Brig. In , Twentieth Century-Fox faced crises in leadership, finaces and creativity which nearly saw the studio go under.

This happened because of decreasing sales at the cinema from the introduction of television in the s, and all the Hollywood studios were going broke. Fox introduced CinemaScope which was a radical change to the way people viewed films. After much soul searching the studios started to do shows for television. Quinn Martin television producer and entrepreneur formed his own company in , calling it QM Productions. Still holding the rights to the novel, he had the idea that 12 O'Clock High would make a good series, but Twentieth Century-Fox had the money and property, so a relationship was formed between the two.

In , the pilot for the show began, and when the script was sorted out the title was 12 O'Clock High - The Series. The cast was Robert Lansing as Brig. Friday, 18 September , was a great day in television as 12 O'Clock High had it's debut, but it was not the pilot film that got top billing.

It was the third episode. Because of Quinn Martin's dislike of Robert Lansing, he was dropped after the first series, and later Martin wished that Lansing had not be replaced. By the show had gone the same way as many before it and was re-assigned to the dustbin, after four seasons. This is a terrific book for all 12 O'Clock High fans as it has the complete history, all in one book, with a complete episode guide, an extras for the book information and collectibles, and the photos throughout the book are quite welcomed. It is one of those books that gets the respect it deserves, so I will give it five stars and recommend it to all fans, and to those people who wish to get a taste of what 12 O'Clock High was all about.

I only hope that the series is not too long coming to dvd as well.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Fascinating look at the classic book, film and TV series, with tremendous background, interviews and behind-the-scenes stories, plus jaw-dropping background on the real life men that the reel heroes were based on. Highly recommend this book. A delightful, exciting, detailed book. The terrible irony, however, is that the original novel is long out of print. And unfortunately, the TV series is not commercially available, good as it is. Written by two 8th Air Force veterans, "Twelve O'Clock High" the novel followed the trials and tribulations of General Frank Savage, a tough-as-nails commander, as he labored to salvage a demoralized Bomb Group that has suffered heavy losses to the Luftwaffe.

Savage is successful in his efforts but at a great personal cost. In the novel became an Academy Award winning box office hit starring Gregory Peck. Frankly I have always enjoyed the movie more than the novel because it sliced away anything not related to Savage's struggle, turning it into a lean, mean chronicle of men at war.

A gifted actor, he turned Savage into a multi-dimensional, living, breathing, fascinating human being. Burke simply wasn't the actor Lansing was and the series went down in flames after season three. Duffin and Matheis' book chronicles the whole history of the "Twelve O'Clock High" saga, from the real-life World War II events and personalities that Beirne Lay and Sy Bartlett used to create the novel to the final episode of the TV show and what happened to the principals afterwards.

The depth of research is truly impressive; the book's bibliography alone runs to 23 pages. The book is illustrated with dozens of rare photos and, again, it's a shame the publisher, BearManor Media, didn't use the better quality paper such a quality manuscript deserved. Whether you enjoyed the novel, movie or TV series - or all three - if you are a "Twelve O'Clock High" fan, you will want to buy this book! It is the definitive work on the subject and a good read as well.
