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 »

Robert Taylor and Maureen O'Sullivan
4 July 2014 | by marthawilcox1831See all my reviews

Blink an eye and you'll miss Robert Taylor. He only appears 30 minutes into the film and you'll barely recognise him. For someone who has such a stern demeanour and a strong presence, he barely shows up in this film. He is there as a pilot, but for some reason he has no personality or presence in this film. I had to watch it a second time, rewinding and fast- forwarding before I could see him. He sounds and looks like Robert Young and so I just thought it was Robert Young until I got to the end of the film and realised I didn't see Taylor. It is one of those odd films where a major talent in the early part of their career is a bit of an empty space until they come into their own. There is nothing in Taylor's performance in this film that indicates he will become a star.
