Trivia

Bette Davis has claimed to have a bit role in this film. Despite the presence of future husband Gary Merrill, she does not appear and evidently confused the title with "Shining Victory" in which she did appear in a bit role. See more »

A cadet tells it like it is!
13 April 2002 | by (Florida U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

This movie gets it right. As a former USAF Aviation Cadet, I can tell you this movie has it all. The tedium of the application process. The waiting for word. The joy of acceptance. The worry about making it through the course. The sorrow of watching one's buddies (perhaps the best of them) wash out. The anguish of paying the ultimate price - the death of fellow student airmen. The glory of graduation. Always the flying, the flying, the flying. Many are called but few are chosen. We did for pay what we would have eagerly paid to do. Later, a lifetime of flying fighters and close air support aircraft. Living through combat in Viet Nam but always with the foundation gained in the Aviation Cadet Corps.
