Did You Know?


The Production Code Administration (the censors) requested that the "pansy gag" be deleted from the prints. That gag has James Gleason kissing Wallace Beery, who responds with, "Only men belong in this outfit." However, that scene is in the Turner library print. See more »


When the initial flying training ensues, the clips of two-seat trainers landing clearly have some two-seaters landing with only a pilot in the back seat and an empty front seat, although they are supposed to be training flights with both an instructor and a student pilot aboard. See more »

Robert Taylor and Maureen O'Sullivan
4 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

Blink an eye and you'll miss Robert Taylor. He only appears 30 minutes into the film and you'll barely recognise him. For someone who has such a stern demeanour and a strong presence, he barely shows up in this film. He is there as a pilot, but for some reason he has no personality or presence in this film. I had to watch it a second time, rewinding and fast- forwarding before I could see him. He sounds and looks like Robert Young and so I just thought it was Robert Young until I got to the end of the film and realised I didn't see Taylor. It is one of those odd films where a major talent in the early part of their career is a bit of an empty space until they come into their own. There is nothing in Taylor's performance in this film that indicates he will become a star.
