The clocks of Three O'Clock High

September 21, 2020


Three O'Clock High (1987) opens with Jerry Mitchell (Casey Siemaszko) and his alarm clock going off at 7:30 am. It closes with a shot of the school clock at 8:00 am the next morning, and in between, the progression of Jerry's day towards his showdown with Buddy Revell (Richard Tyson) is marked by numerous glimpses of clocks (and a watch) as the day goes by.
