Storyline

Actor Jack Webb, inexplicably working for a police department, arrives at a U.S. Air Force base looking to get a feel for Air Force "language." The base commander is embroiled in a contretemps with the citizens of a nearby town who object to the noise of the base's jets. But when the Air Force helps the mayor out of a jam, all is forgiven. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

It's Your Air Force
9 July 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Jack Webb, narrating in the same staccato style that he used in DRAGNET, heads over to a temporary air force base to speak with an old friend and try to pick up some contemporary dialogue for a story and winds up with a civics lesson about the purposes and methods of air defense and the difficulties of getting along with the civilian neighbors.

Of more interest to me is the lovely photography by Edward Colman, not only the jets -- I used to assemble Aurora models of them when I was a kid -- but images of the jet engines firing up and the scenery they fly past -- and the flocks of turkey gabbling at the noise, upsetting the civilians.

It's a good point, driven home, in Jack Webb style, with a sledge hammer, but the pictures are beautiful.
