This RARE 1929 Pre-Code war aviation action-adventure B&W sound movie dvd release is titled... FLIGHT
This early Frank Capra talkie stars popular screen action team Jack Holt and Ralph Graves as U. S. marines stationed in Nicaragua. The "two guys fighting over one gal" throughline is there because the audience expected it -- and besides, leading lady Lila Lee is awfully cute. But the meat of the story lies in the fact that Holt and Graves are pilots, required to fly their Curtis fighter-bomber on dangerous missions. The flight scenes, shot without the benefit of special effects or back projection, are truly awe-inspiring, and served as stock footage for countless films in future years. Released in both silent and sound versions, Flight was a major success. (This RARE dvd is of the sound version.) Its effectiveness is all the more remarkable when one realizes that star Jack Holt had a lifelong fear of flying!
