Early talkie has a creaky plot but impressive aerial sequences.
Howard Hawks first talkie about pilots in a WW1 British fighter squadron coping with a desperately high attrition rate. The acting is silent movie melodramatic but is easily overlooked as the story is gritty and affecting. The flying scenes are excellent as is a dreamlike sequence where a railyard is bombed. Richard Barthelmess, an almost forgotten silent movie star, is formidably intense in the lead role.
Great WW1 flying drama. A very gritty and accurate look at life, and death, in a Royal Flying Corps (RFC) fighter squadron. Details fairly well the burden of command, of sending pilots to almost certain death.
Incredibly good flying action scenes, especially for 1930. Great cinematography, for the time. The non-action scenes are good too, filled with drama and the realities of living with a Sword of Damocles over one's head.
Reasonably good performances all round. No real stand-outs. Pity that American actors had to be used for some parts, as it ruins the authenticity somewhat.
For some reason the movie was remade 8 years later, also as The Dawn Patrol, and with Errol Flynn in the lead role. Copied the plot to the letter and didn't add much, so not sure why it was made. Was still a good movie though.
Intense and subtle war movie. Impeccably crafted and designed.
good stuff great action
