3.0 out of 5 stars star spangled duo 12 Oct 2012
Format:DVD
quite entertaining story of volunteer american pilot
based on thousands of americans joining rcaf before
america entered war. no doubt musical comedy to boost
morale in 1941.it would have been easy to enlist in
canada by crossing border. also as accents similar
germans wouldnt know difference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grable brings playboy flier down to earth 18 Aug 1999
By Tom McGee - Published on Amazon.com
Playboy flier Tyrone Power enlists in RAF at the start of WW2. In London he literally bumps into his ex-girlfriend, dancer Betty Grable, and tries to rekindle their romance, in this exciting wartime adventure written by studio chief Darryl Zanuck (under the name of Melville Crossman). Hollywood's first WW2 film is a very authentic account of the early days of Britain at war. Good use of actual aerial battle-scene footage. And Grable adds a touch of much-needed sex appeal in her scenes with Power. In the original story Power's character was killed in battle, but when the British War Office heard of this, they pleaded with Zanuck to change the ending as it would have a bad effect on the morale of UK citizens! Zanuck conceded, and Power wins Grable in the end. Oh well, that's Hollywood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Betty Grable fans...and World War II buffs, REJOICE... 26 April 2002
By Richard Dodge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
...this 1941 film did a lot in its day to interest
Americans in the plight of our British cousins at
the beginning of World War II. It is entertainment,
but with air combat footage that adds to its reality.
Betty Grable and Tyrone Power are attractive and
engaging. Now that we are once again sadly engaged
in war, it is of special interest to have the chance
to look at ourselves sixty years ago and reflect upon
the similarities and the differences. Betty Grable
was a symbol of American womanhood back then...she was
more than a pin up...she was a working woman and a very
popular entertainer. Certainly she is another reason
this film is well worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little Dot In West Texas 25 July 2011
By Little Dot in West Texas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
If you're a fan of Betty Grable like most of the people writting reviews on this movie, then you should just buy it! I did and I liked this movie. Betty Grable was the best! If you have any doubts about it, I suggest you check it out on youtube or some other website first. Mostly though, if you're browsing through Betty Grable's dvd's, chances are you're going to buy this movie :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie Always! 29 Jan 2014
By Jeanne Donley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fun movie where guy chases girl...gets the girl...then lost the girl and then at the end wins her back with all his charm! I would say it has some serious parts as well as it is a comedy! Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love it 2 Feb 2012
By Tea customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I already watched so many times and never get tired. Became one of my most favorite movies. Tyrone Power is and always will be legend. He really comes from the past as a dream. Today there are not made movies like this. The whole movie is great. I can not imagine how anybody can give this less than 5 stars
