William Holden goes where no man’s gone before in director Mervyn LeRoy’s high-flying aviation adventure. Tortured into making a false confession while a POW in Korea, Major Lincoln Bond (Holden) returns to active service as a test pilot at Edwards Air Force Base. Determined to clear his name, Bond battles a hard-nosed base commander (Lloyd Nolan), prejudiced officers and his own insecurities in hopes of landing the most coveted – and dangerous – test project of all: the Bell X-2 rocket plane. The first and only film made by Holden’s own company, Toward the Unknown features an X-2 mockup especially built for the production by Bell Aircraft and marks the screen debut of James Garner, whose TV series Maverick would make him a household name just a year later.

**Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.

      Comments about this product:

      Serves as a good template for the first half of "The Right Stuff," down to the visual effects and sound effects. An all around good film for Holden, Noland and James Garner as well, even if he has less screen time than the others. Some of the concepts might be cliched, but they had to start somewhere.
