Trivia

The use of several uncredited, but recognizable players in dual roles results in some odd situations: Sidney Bracey is first seen at the Burbank Airport starting point, then later he's in the crowd at Cleveland at the finish line. See more »

Soar With Kay Francis!
5 March 2002 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Women in the Wind is an enjoyable movie that is briskly paced and features some interesting airplane sequences. Don't expect a strong story or deep characterization, though, just a good time at the movies. Besides, with Kay Francis in it how can you go wrong?
