Above and Beyond

In this moving 1953 drama from director Melvin Frank, Col. Paul Tibbets, commander of the 509th Composite Group during World War II, struggles to come to grips with his peculiar place in human history: He's the first man to ever drop an atomic bomb. While his wife, Lucey, has stayed loyal to him, the aftermath of causing such destruction leaves Paul questioning his humanity and the mission that may have forever diminished it.
