Trivia

One of two mid-1980s movies involving early 20th Century aviation. The other film was High Road to China (1983) which also featured bi-planes, was also set around the same period era of post-World War I and was also filmed in the same Yugoslavian [now Croatian] region around Rijeka. See more »

Goofs

The Boeing Stearman plane used in the film had his maiden flight in 1936. It can't have flown in the early 1920s. See more »

Was An Interesting Change
11 May 2006 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Watching Christopher Reeve play totally against type. After years of playing a mild mannered, hero type, He decides to play the anti-hero. The Reeves and Arquette are an unlikely pairing. At first, her character appears to have no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Reeves does a good job playing the irritated grownup with a spoiled brat.

This looks like a good TV movie, made for the small screen. However, the movie has some heart felt moments. And, it is worth watching, if for no other reason, to watch Reeve not play Superman. This is one of Reeve's best "non Superman" performances; if only it could have been in a better picture. But, This movie does have some pretty good moments.
