Great aerial stunts, good period atmosphere, and compelling story with Redford in good form.

Audience Reviews for The Great Waldo Pepper


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.
