For a few tense days in June 1944, the success of the D-Day military invasion was completely reliant on weather readings taken by a young woman at a remote weather station on Ireland's west coast. THE STORY OF THE D-DAY FORECAST: THREE DAYS IN JUNE includes a special interview with the now 96-year-old Maureen Sweeney - providing a living link to a unique moment in history, where military might and meteorological analysis collided. Sweeney's data threw General Dwight D. Eisenhower's meticulously planned invasion strategy into chaos, forcing him to make one of the most difficult decisions in the entire war. Completely unaware of the significance of her work, Sweeney's readings were the first to point out an impending storm that would lead to the postponement of the invasion.

INSIDE HIGH NOON explores both the landmark 1952 film starring Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Lloyd Bridges and Katy Jurado, and the gripping story behind its troubled production. The documentary reveals how many of the studios passed on the project and major Hollywood actors turned it down before Gary Cooper accepted the lead role. When it was ultimately released, High Noon was seen by some as an attack on the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). At least half-a-dozen people involved in the production were blacklisted; among them, screenwriter Carl Foreman and cinematographer Floyd Crosby. Gary Cooper put his career on the line for Foreman during and after production, hailing him as "The finest kind of American." INSIDE HIGH NOON also explores the film itself: why it has aroused controversy among critics, how its treatment of women and of masculinity was ahead of its time, and why HIGH NOON has come to be seen as a masterpiece of American cinema. The documentary weaves together clips from High Noon and analysis and commentary from Tim Zinneman (son of director Fred Zinneman), Jonathan Foreman (son of screenwriter Carl Foreman), Crown Prince Albert of Monaco (Grace Kelly's son), Maria Cooper (Gary Cooper's daughter), President Bill Clinton, and many film critics and historians. 2022 is the 70th anniversary of the release of High Noon.
