Lindbergh's biggest dilemma on the flight was trying to stay awake. To a large extent, it's ours, too.

The adventure of the historical making flight was captured, but not its spirit.

...in the end, the long film becomes almost as tedious as the flight that inspired it.

Stewart, who was nominated for five best actor Oscars -- his one win was for "The Philadelphia Story" (1940) -- turns in perhaps his most impressive feat.

Not one of Billy Wilder's best efforts -- still has some interest because of James Stewart's performance, which is very nearly a one-man show.

Spirit is a James Stewart one-man show.

Billy Wilder's movie isn't particularly daring in its telling, but as a piece of American -- and world -- history, The Spirit of St. Louis is something everyone should see.

A haunting recollection of one of the thrilling events of our times has been handsomely staged by Mr. Wilder, and for that you should see the film.

Not one of Billy Wilder's strong features, this biopic of the ace flyer is too conventional, lacking the helmer's more characteristic humor, irony, cynicism.
