Goofs

All the airplanes except the DeHavilands are well past 1918 time period. Curtiss P-1s are recognizable as well as other airplanes with highly tapered wings. Even the DH-4s were dated by 1933, but had been kept around, first as mail planes, then as barnstormers. See more »

Quotes

Henry Crocker: Why don't you get wise? This is a war. I'm hired to kill the enemy, and there ain't no book of rules about that. Every one I put away means one less to kill me. That's my job, and I'm doing it.

Royal Flying Corps goes off into the wild blue yonder
21 October 2005 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Eagle and the Hawk are Fredric March and Cary Grant, a couple of enlistees in Britain's Royal Flying Corps in World War I. March is Grant's training officer and he washes him out as a pilot. Grant resents this of course and bops him one on the snoot. He gets to be a tailgunner.

When they get over there March becomes an air ace. But soon all the deaths of comrades around him really gets to him. He's a sensitive soul and he starts to crack up. By then Grant is on the scene as his tailgunner, but they're still not getting along.

The Eagle and the Hawk covers a whole lot of the same ground as The Dawn Patrol did. But the players here know their business and serve the clichés up well done. Cary Grant plays very much against type. A few years later the public would never have accepted him in the part he plays here.

Jack Oakie is around to do the comic relief. Carole Lombard is in this as well for about 10 minutes as a woman March encounters while on a 10 day leave. I'm not quite sure what her purpose is in this film other than to give the men in the audience something to gape at.

It's a good anti-war film and the ending will surprise you.
