Movie Info

Aerial tale set in the 1920s about a traveling aviator whose exaggerations look to be discovered when he begins work on a film with a pilot with whom he claims to have done battle. Having told colorful stories of wartime combat with the notorious German flying ace, the two men fortunately find a mutual respect, which culminates in a spectacular dogfight.

    It's hard to believe it now, but there was a time that if you had an airplane you could fly it anywhere, anytime, and you could use the gas from any gas station. This story takes place at the end of that era. Redford plays a good pilot who is untested, in his own eyes and in the eyes of his fellows and watches anxiously as the chance for that testing slips away. Already the feds are moving in with their laws and regulations, fencing off the sky itself. George Roy Hill, the director and a pilot himself (along with William Goldman, writer, and Henry Mancini doing the music) capture the breezy spirit of that freedom, the freedom of the air, and those times with some melancholy and longing.

    The airplane stunts in this movie are exciting, and the drama in the movie is pretty good, and it's kind of sad too. I hated the end, though. This movie was good, but it could have been better.
