Howard Hughes directs James Hall, Ben Lyon and Jean Harlow in this WWI pilot actioner famous for its realistic aviation stunt work.
Two brothers, a sap and a coward, get led along by the same good time girl but put aside their differences to fight the Hun in the clouds. Famous for being a silent film converted to sound when technology overtook the production, its dogfight sequences which Hughes put a lot of budget and lives into, and gifting the world with blonde bombshell Jean Harlow. She is gorgeous and full of life in this, the action is thrilling and immersive. The framing story is mouldy pap though.
