TREMENDOUS SPECTACLE, when scores of fighting airplanes come to death grips in the skies...STIRRING ROMANCE in the glorious love of a maid of Normandy for a daredevil flier who goes up on his last trip in the face of new found love. See more »
British and American pilots launch attacks during World War I from a small town in France. A caring Colleen Moore is dedicated to providing moral support to these pilots. Gary Cooper replaces a downed pilot. Antagonism between Moore and Cooper precedes romance and provides a comic beginning. As romance develops, the pilots, including Cooper, are sent on a dangerous mission. A commercially available release of this film allow interested viewers to find Cooper's fate and the end result of Moore's trials and tribulations to also find his fate. This end of the silent era movie is worth the effort to ferret out for viewing.
The theme song of the motion picture, "Jeannine, I Dream of Lilac Time," is commercially available. It was recorded by well over a hundred top artists, including Louis Armstrong, Skitch Henderson, Guy Lombardo, The London Symphony Orchestra, opera star John McCormack, Mitch Miller, The Platters, Lawrence Welk, and Paul Whiteman. Many of these recordings have been transferred to commercially available CDs. For example, a recording by the composer, Nat Shilkret, is included in the ASV CD "Dancing With Tears In My Eyes," which is available from amazon.com.
