Having recently arrived in London, Tim Baker (Tyrone Power) is hoping to impress his girlfriend Carol Brown (Betty Grable) by joining the Royal Air Force. His 'couldn't care' attitude towards the war changes when he has to fly under combat conditions and prove his abilities.

This film, based on the short story 'Eagle Squadron,' penned by Fox Boss Darryl Zanuck, was one of the earliest films to alert the American people to the peril that Britain was facing. Ty Power is, as ever, perfect as the somewhat dubious Tim Baker, a commercial pilot who joins the RAF just to get Grable (and who can blame him?). However, there is another man with his eyes on Grable - Power's commanding Officer!

The casting is perfect, and the film integrates actual combat footage with the story (as well as one of the most gratuitous leg shots I've ever seen). Betty Grable sings as well, which makes it excellent.

Ty Power was supposed to die at the end, but the War Office wouldn't let him, as they thought that might suggest Britain was losing, so you have everyting coming out okay in the end.

Very much enjoyed the film which showed how much American and European pilots joined forces with the RAF during those very challenging years. I was born January 1942 so a little young (?) to remember those days but we lived 20 miles East of London and it was a regular event for the retreating German bombers to off-load their unloaded bombs as they headed homewards. Unfortuneatly our village was directly on their flight path but despite my very young years I still have vivid memories of the dog-fights as the Hurricanes and Spitfires based at Hornchurch engaged thme as they fled back to their base.

I found it to be an enjoyable, if somewhat dated,film but I believe that it reflects the view of that time and that it should be watched with that in mind. It is unreasonable to try and compare this film and the technology available at that time with that which is taken for granted today. I can only quote the words of Winston Churchill - "Never has been done for so many by so few".

As always Amazon has come up with a very good film and their service is as good as we have come to expect

Next to Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable was the ultimate pin-up with American GI's overseas during the war. In this movie she is in love with Tyrone Power, gorgeous as ever, who is a charming, but irresponsible pilot. And at the same time she is tempted to take up with another officer of a more serious and responsible disposition. The movie has some wonderful lines and the action is fair, but it is hardly a title that the DVD market was clamouring for ...
