"I wouldn't trust him with Whistler's Mother!"
17 July 2007 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Perky, freshly-scrubbed, impertinent Jane Wyman trains to be a airline stewardess with American Airlines; once in the air, she clashes lightly with pilot Howard Keel and passenger Van Johnson, while on the ground she has a slight run-in with Barry Sullivan. All three men--all named Mike--quickly come around with romantic notions (this is the kind of '50's comedy where men can't wait to get hitched), but Wyman is so busy hatching ideas and shooting from the hip that she barely notices all the male attention. What begins as a smartly-written and executed glimpse at a stewardess's life in the sky is soon hustled right into romantic comedy territory. The question is obvious (whom will she choose?), yet I didn't find any of these potential suitors capable of handling Wyman, who is continually mouthing off in a wide-eyed, nonchalantly feminine way. This puff-piece, directed with snap but no flair by Charles Walters, is nearly impossible to critique seriously; if pressed, I would have to say the fist-fight in the photographer's apartment wouldn't really be worthy of the front page of the newspaper (did the fight last long enough for reporters and shutterbugs to show up?). Walters captures first-day-on-the-job jitters exceptionally well, but Sidney Sheldon's screenplay goes soft too fast. The final line between the men is amusing, but what we don't get see at the fade-out is a career girl who feels alive up in the air quickly tied down in suburbia with kids tugging at her apron. **1/2 from ****
