Ok .... Jump ...

We follow a new intake at an Air Hostess School where former librarian Gloria Henry (Ruth) is reluctantly enrolled by her sister Helen Mowery (Midge). She is joined by glamorous top dog Audrey Long (Lorraine) who I thought was Carole Landis at first. So did my wife. A definite resemblance. The girls learn how to operate radios, how to deal with customers and have to complete a parachute jump. Can they all make the grade? And maybe bag a boyfriend?

It's ok with one memorable parachute jump at the film's end. Audrey Long is good in her role and she manages to inject some drama into proceedings. When it's over, that's it. Nothing special.

Nowadays an air hostess doesn't need the glamour factor which used to be a pre-requisite for the industry. Check out some of those budget airline boys and girls! And what about the customers!!! They let anyone on planes these days. I think there needs to be an Airline Passenger School. In fact, that's just given me the premise for a film idea. It's set in a world where you have to have undertaken a course in order to learn how to behave as a customer. Only then are you allowed to fly. It could apply to any industry really. Definitely some comedy potential in that one.
