Did You Know?


Himself - Host: I'll never forget the first time I soloed. Everything was just great. I, I did rolls, loops, spins, a real steep canyon. Only made one small mistake... tried to bring the plane in with the landing gear up. Now you don't lose your wings for a mistake like that, you usually sprout them!

Predictable but good war melodrama

OK, I admit that this kind of story has already been told before, at least a thousand times, and every one would prefer Henry King's TWELVE O'CLOCK. But this episode is a solid expose that shows the true burden of bombardiers pilots, their inner problems, their expectations, their courage, and I won't speak of all the technicalities around the flying fortresses which they were aboard of. Dick Powell is as good as usual as the squadron leader, a true one, so close to his men. Cliché, you would say, yes, but very well done. You have the foreseeable scene where Dick Powell's wife argues with him about the fact that, as a B 17 squadron leader, he provokes death of lots of innocent people. But you have something special in this short story, I let you find out exactly what.
