This is my first, knowing exposure to anything with the Allen Smithee stamp on it. After seeing it, it's understandable that the director wants to be disassociated from it. It's about a lawyer-turned-stunt-pilot, and his romance with a big-time-dancer-wannabe. The poor attempts to spice up this story involve its telling by a wheel-chair-bound friend of the flyer; a plane race to win cash to pay for more sophisticated wings which might be the first to accomplish a difficult stunt; an amnesia-producing crash and its effects; and the stunt, itself. I don't want to directly offend anybody, so, I'll just suggest that certain actors pay heed to the "don't quit your day job" warning.
