Tyrone Power is a pilots' pilot, but he doesn't believe in anything beyond his own abilities. He gets into trouble by flying a new fighter directly to Canada instead of to New York and letting it be towed across as the law demands, but is offered a new job ferrying bombers to war torn England. While on a layover he finds Betty Grable, an old flame, has joined the RAF as a WREN in her attempt to fight for democracy. Power joins up to impress her and in the course of his several missions begins to develope an understanding of what they are fighting for. Written by

Bill Collins writes in his book "Bill Collins presents The Golden Years of Hollywood", "With the co-operation of the Ministry for Information and a second-unit camera team headed by Ronald Neame . . . to shoot exciting RAF action in England, [Darryl F. Zanuck] livened-up the substance of the script and had a perfect vehicle for two of the [20th Century-Fox] company's top stars, Tyrone Power and Betty Grable. The box-office success of the movie was ensured by the stars . . ." See more »
The following items are 'goofs', but may have been made deliberately by the filmmakers in the interests of war-time security: The real 61 Squadron flew Hampden bombers, not Lockheed Hudsons. Hudson bombers were not used in bombing missions over Berlin, with the main role for these bombers being in Coastal Command in Europe. The real 32 Squadron, which Baker flies with in the Dunkirk scenes, flew Hawker Hurricanes and not Spitfires. When Baker gets in the Spitfire, it carries the squadron code 'LO' which was the code of the 602 Squadron and not the 32 Squadron he is supposed to be flying with (it used KT and GZ). 602 Squadron aircraft were used for shooting the film at Prestwick See more »
Well, I haven't looked at another girl since you left.
Well, I've looked at other men.
Maybe, but I'll bet you didn't look at them the same way you looked at me that first night in Kansas City. Remember?... You were going east, and I was going west; then we saw each other, and I was going east!

Just saw it today for the first time, and I really loved it. I don't care if its labeled "propoganda" and I don't care if a bunch of guys here don't like it because its not some boring war movie with hours of flying sequences. I especially loved the review that mourned the fact that we didn't get to see more planes refueling. Honey, it's not a documentary!
It's charming and Grable's musical numbers are so fun! (And this is the first time I have ever liked Grable).. The tunes are fantastic. Today's Hollywood on its best day couldn't put together a movie have as cohesive or fun.
Best of all, it's got Tyrone Power who, along with Errol Flynn, are the two best looking, most charming male actors ever. Love love love it!
