Only Angels Have Wings (1939)

Howard Hawks directs Cary Grant, Jean Arthur and Rita Hayworth in this action romance where a pretty tourist falls in with a bunch of daredevil mail delivering pilots who are risking their lives in South America.

Easy going adventure / romance / drama / situation comedy movie with musical number bunged in for the gals. Never boring but you do have to wonder why this is held in quite such high esteem… Jean Arthur is the lead and she disappears off screen for a solid twenty minutes, only to fall though a door when the screenwriters remember we should be following her too.
