Reasonable B-Feature
26 July 2001 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

This is a reasonably good B-feature that combines some light comedy with some romantic melodrama. It moves slowly at times, and doesn't always fit together, but it has some redeeming features.

The story concerns two military pilots, one played by William Cagney, who looks very much like his brother, but who never manages quite the screen presence. The two work together on a lot of hazardous assignments, and when on the ground find themselves in constant competition over women. For much of the film, they simply play practical jokes on each other in their rivalries over women. Much of it is predictable, but often amusing anyway. Then things get more serious, when one of the pilots cannot forgive the hurt caused by one of these romantic misfires, and just afterwards they must go on an especially hazardous mission together.

It's nothing special, but there's probably enough here to make it worth a try if you enjoy 30's-style movies.
