Critic Reviews for Test Pilot

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (2)

Test Pilot is an actioner against a new approach to the aviation theme, fortified by a strong romance.

One of the best Hollywood aviation dramas.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Myrna Loy's favorite movie role.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Combining adventure, melodrama, and thrilling aerial sequences, Victor Fleming's film is a typical MGM star vehicle of the Depression, showing to an advantage the charisma of Gable, Tracy, and Myrna Loy.

Super MGM WWII actioner + tear jerker.

December 8, 2006
Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers

It wants to be a grand story of love and adventure and the call of ever-increasing speed and height, but it's basically just Top Gun, fifty years earlier.

The stellar combination of Cable, Tracey and Loy is irrestistible, even if the plot is a little trite.

Audience Reviews for Test Pilot

Good cast, but the movie is too long and boring.

Not a great film but not one easily dismissed either. Gable and Tracy are charming as is Myrna Loy. Silly 30s fare to see on a rainy day.

There is no better on screen duo in the 30's better than Gable and Tracy. These two are instant magic when they are together. Throw in Myrna Loy and you have a very fun movie with 3 actors at the top of their game.The film is about a test pilot(Gable) and his trusty mechanic(Tracy) who meet a girl(Loy) and how the strain of a test pilot's life affects them all.The film is a little long,but the action is well done.The acting is the main reason to watch this film, and if your are a fan of the big three, then you will have a good time.
