A Gathering of Eagles DVD Rock Hudson

NOTE: This DVD video - as are all the DVDs we sell - is playable on US DVD players.


A Gathering of Eagles is a 1963 movie about the Cold War and the pressures of command. The plot is patterned after the film Twelve O'Clock High, which producer-screenwriter Sy Bartlett also wrote, with elements also mirroring Above and Beyond, a film written by his collaborator, Beirne Lay, Jr..

Rock Hudson plays a United States Air Force Colonel, Jim Caldwell, as a Strategic Air Command (SAC) B-52 wing commander. He must shape up his men to pass a grueling operational readiness inspection (ORI) that the previous commander had failed and for which he had been relieved of his command. Caldwell is also recently married to an English wife, and as a tough commanding officer doing whatever he has to do to shape up his command, his wife sees a side to him that she hadn't seen before.

The film also stars Rod Taylor, Mary Peach, Barry Sullivan, Kevin McCarthy, Henry Silva, Robert Lansing, Leif Erickson, and Richard Anderson.
