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

Camera operator Otto Kanturek and his uncredited assistant, aerial photographer Jack Parry, were both killed in a plane crash when a Hurricane fighter collided with their Avro Anson camera plane over Cawston, Norfolk, England, on 26 June 1941. Other reports state that, according to 20th Century-Fox publicity, the two men were flying to England to shoot fight sequences and after the footage was shot, the plane they were in was attacked and shot down by German aircraft.

When Baker gets into his Spitfire it carries the squadron code 'LO', but the shots of the Spitfires taking off show them with the code 'SH' (used by 64 Squadron) and shots in the air show the code has returned to 'LO'. 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!
