Gary Cooper is put on trial in 1955's The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell.

Gary Cooper (High Noon) portrays a controversial American general in the 1955 biographical war drama about one of the most sensational military trials in U.S. history in The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell.

It’s the end of Wwi and the birth of aerial warfare. Though airplanes had only been used for reconnaissance, Brigadier General Billy Mitchell (Cooper) has foreseen their deadly power and importance in future combat as bombers and fighter planes. But his superiors in the Army Air Service are blind to what Mitchell senses and when he begins to campaign to build an armed Air Force against their will, they brand him a traitor and summon him for court-martial. Although the Army attempts to cover up the trial, it becomes an explosive media event »
