Wendell Corey and Forest Tucker, star as a pair of WWII Army Air Corps officers. In between their battles over the affections of beautiful nurse Vera Hruba Ralston, Corey and Tucker prepare to fly a bombing mission in the South Pacific. Before boarding their B29 Superfortress, Tucker appears to be chickening out, but he is steadfastly at his cockpit past at takeoff time. for a big-budget war picture, Wild Blue Yonder contains a surprising amount of chorus boy- style singing. The best musical vignette is supporting player Phil Harris' rendition of his hit song "The Thing"("Get outta hear with that [thump! thump! thump!]/ before i call a cop" etc.)
This is an upgrade from the DVD we had listed before May 18th. It came from a very good quality print. There are some scratches, but it is much sharper than the previous DVD. Please watch the sample clip.Below is a sample clip from the DVD. One clip shows Phil Harris performing the song, "The Thing". The entire song is performed on the DVD. I've just put up a short clip from the song. The other clip shows the opening few minutes of the film. I edited it to play the opening title and cast and then a short scene from the movie, just to give you an idea of the quality.
