What a deception this story starring Bob Stack, which I expected far better, maybe because I saw Robert Stack in Bill Wellman's HIGH AND THE MIGHTY, another film about pilots. But this story is so bored. At first, I also thought of a film made by Howard Hawks, the kind he made in the thirties or forties. Yes, you have here a men's story, fly boys and love affairs with their female mates and other existential problems, but I was so bored with all this mess. In such a short episode, only twenty four minutes, you have certainly no time to waste with long dialogues when the audiences seek something else. You can only save the overall atmosphere and the acting. Stack is more than OK and above all, that's not a cheesy romance nor a silly comedy. It's a real drama. The only drawback is that maybe I expected too much. The quality of this piece of work is what it is. Why should it be a crap only because I waited for something else? I was wrong that's all.
