Sternberg uses the espionage and counter-espionage of Jules Furthman's screenplay to depict the mysteries of relationships
The only way to enjoy this Hughes-Wayne propaganda vehicle is as high camp (Janet Leigh realizes the Soviet System doesn't work when doorknobs come off)--it's a footnote in Josef von Sternberg's career.
A major disappointment.
Camp value only. Poor Sternberg!
Despite its drawbacks and its overall silliness, I most heartily recommend Jet Pilot.
John Wayne plays an Air Force Col. Jim Shannon who gets a surprise landing at his base by none other Janet Leigh (who was not overly convincing as a Russian Soviet Pilot because not once does she even give the least hint of a Russian accent.) The air force wants to get information out of her and give John Wayne the job. She proves to be a tough nut to crack so they decide to deport her but the Duke has fallen for her and knowing that they cannot deport the wife of an American Citizen, he marries her only to find out after they are married she is a spy and it's all just a Russian plot to get information to take back to the mother land.
The legendary talents of producer Howard Hughes, director Josef von Sternberg and actor John Wayne combine to bring a thrilling and often humorous Cold War adventure to the screen, accentuated by outstanding aerial photography and thunderous action sequences.
The special effects in this film are quite convincing in spite of its age. Of course, the US Air Force helped everywhere needed to make the picture seem real.
Wayne and Janet Leigh are especially good together as are the usual cast of colorful characters who help pad out the storyline.
