    The year of release tells everything about this effort, all about a trio of young men set on learning to fly "the real stuff" for the U.S. military. There's some little drama offered too, difficulties along the way to learning to fly, but the real weight of the thing is carried by Veronica Lake, very nearly in the wrong movie as her character is written to be so very "bad". Otherwise a typical propaganda vehicle for the U.S. military complex, desperately in need of bodies.
