Pat Talbot's disc identifies him as member of the Eagle Squadron. The Eagle Squadrons were RAF squadrons comprised of US pilots. There were three squadrons, nos 71, 121 and 133, formed in September 1940, May 1941 and July 1941 respectively. In 1942, the three squadrons were turned over to the USAAF. See more »

Just have fun with it
24 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Wayne is second billed to the other lead, Joan Crawford, because after all this is MGM, Joan's studio, at least for awhile longer. This is a film that was obviously targeting a wartime audience with the objective of building patriotism and morale, so you have to look at the miscasting in the context of the times. Joan Crawford plays a French woman who seems to be plumbing the depths of shallowness in her high-rolling lifestyle until the Germans invade. She returns to Paris to find her fancy home confiscated, her boyfriend helping the Germans, and her inner patriotism aroused. She runs across an RAF pilot (Wayne) who has been shot down, and she must play up to her boyfriend and his German friends in order to help Wayne evade capture. Forget the fact that the actors playing Frenchmen don't sound French, that Wayne doesn't sound British, and that the Germans are portrayed as not being smart enough to find Berlin on a map, and just have fun with it. If you are a film history buff like myself, you will see much worse and weirder material about WWII particularly in the early war years.
