Movie Info

Kay Francis was anxious to complete her Warner Bros. contract when she agreed to appear in this lower-berth drama. Francis plays a financially strapped aviatrix who enters an air race to pay for her brother's operation. Friendly mechanic William Gargan offers to lend Francis his plane, but Gargan's ex-wife Sheila Bromley is also competing in the race. Finally securing an aircraft of her own, Francis goes off into the Wild Blue and wins the prize. The otherwise pedestrian Women in the Wind is given a lift by the sensitive direction of John Farrow, on loan from RKO.

Audience Reviews for Women in the Wind

Strictly B stuff with Kay sliding fast down the Hollywood ladder. You know it's bad when the essence of sophistication and elegance is dressed in clothes straight off the rack that don't even look fit for housework. Gargan gives his customary bland performance and Eve Arden while never dull is wasted in a throwaway part.
