During the Occupation,Jean Gremillon 's "le Ciel Est à Vous" paid tribute to all those daring women ,who had a dream to fly."Horizons sans fin" is more of the same.Helene Boucher was one most famous French pilot:she became for a while the fastest pilot in the world.A sales assistant ,she spent her free time learning all about the planes.Unfortunately her career would be short-lived : three years.
Jean Dreville made a lovely film about this endearing character.Gisèle Pascal ,who plays the lead,has fallen into oblivion nowadays ,except for the nostalgics for the fifties ,but her co-star ,Maurice Ronet would become an important actor whose career was stopped by his premature death.
