Directed by Michael Curtiz this was James Cagney's first color film, an aviation tale that was Oscar nominated for Cinematography and Interior Decoration.

James Cagney plays an independent, brash Canadian bush pilot who, inspired by Churchill's Dunkirk speech attempts service in the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II but cannot bend to military ways. Soon, however, he proves his ability as a civilian.

Thanks to Warner Brothers
