Enjoyable B Film
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this 1940 film starring Virginia Bruce, Mary Norvell) and Jane Wyman, (Nan Hudson) was are American Airlines Stewardesses and are Flight Angeles who fly from Points A to B to C & D. The pilots are Dennis Morgan, (Chick Farber) and Wayne Morris, (Artie Dixon) who have a good time with all the stewardesses and plenty of laughs. The stewardesses are a rough bunch of gals who can stand up to any man and between their flights they are gossiping and fighting with each other which makes for some good comedy scenes. Chick Farber works in between flights on a super secret aircraft as a test pilot and is married to Mary Norvell and the couple get along just fine. One day Chick decides to take this special aircraft up in the sky for a test flight and runs into different problems which changes the direction of this film and causes Mary & Chick to break up their marriage. This is a very entertaining B Film and it was great seeing how young Jane Wyman looked in this picture, Jane was once married to President Ronald Reagan. Enjoy.
