AUDIENCE SCORE

Movie Info

Director Leslie Selander invests the Allied Artists "special" Fighter Attack with the same energy that he'd previously applied to his many westerns. Set during World War II, the film concerns an effort to destroy a Nazi supply depot. Though he's flown enough missions to be sent home, squadron leader Steve (Sterling Hayden) insists upon leading the offensive--and, on cue, is shot down behind enemy lines. Rescued by resistance fighters (Joy Page and J. Carroll Naish), Steve becomes the "inside man" for his squadron, laying the groundwork for the destruction of the German supplies. Fighter Attack was pleasingly filmed in the two-color Cinecolor process, as were many Monogram/Allied Artists "A"s of the period.

Audience Reviews for Fighter Attack

This World War II film is nothing out of the ordinary. The cast is bland, but they do a capable job. Fine cinematography, fair story. It has all been done before. At least the filmmakers were smart to keep it short, which helps the pacing.
