Goofs

When the initial flying training ensues, the clips of two-seat trainers landing clearly have some two-seaters landing with only a pilot in the back seat and an empty front seat, although they are supposed to be training flights with both an instructor and a student pilot aboard. See more »

A story of manhood in the 1930's U.S. military.
4 June 2003 | by MSF1146See all my reviews

Wallace Beery's role as BIG MIKE inspired me to overcome a recent challenge.Robert Young as Little Mike, the son,played the very human young soldier facing life altering decisions.The propeller plane air force was very interesting in light of today's SSTS,Stealth bombers & the like.Rosalind Russell & Maureen O'Sullivan gave quality performances as women on the opposite ends of the moral scale.Wallace Berry's strength of character,& admirable rectitude dominated this film.Big Mike has become a hero of mine.
