(OT) Movie w/William Holden as test pilot

I know someone will have the name of this movie. William Holden starred in a
late 50's movie as a test pilot, at Edwards Airforce base, who was busy
battling his personal demons while flying high speed jets.
What's the title of this movie? Is it available on DVD?

For some weird reason, this isn't available on either DVD or VHS. BUMMER!! (Almost as bad as not being able to get The High and the Mighty with the Duke!!!!!)

The only XF-92 I know of was the Convair delta. Was that a typo?
