  • My favorite movie of all time

    This patriotic film, made at the height of WWII is a thinly disguised version of the Amelia Earhart story. Starring Rosalind Russell and Fred MacMurray it is romantic, heroic, comedic and we all know the ending. Randy (Fred MacMurray) and Tonie fall for each other early in the film and with busy lives that take them to distant lands, they never seem to get together. But when a special assignment comes up to look for a "missing pilot" over the Japanese mandated islands, they both volunteer. The pilot heroine, Tonie Carter finds herself on a remote pacific island with a strange mission ahead of her, over the course of one night on the island, a lot changes in her life, both in considering her past and her present situation, and she decides on her course of action for when she leaves the island the next morning.This scene is mysterious and evocative, there is very little detail and almost everything we see is significant so the island takes on the quality of a dream. The various characters which come her way seem like ghosts; their significance is in what they whisper to her, reminds her of her responsibilities and memories.The film is bittersweet and leaves you emotionally involved in a way todays films are never able to do. Flight for Freedom seems to have vanished from television and I don't know why. It's almost as good as Casablanca. I have borrowed some of the text above from others because they said it so much better than i ever could.

    A great film detailing the career, under a pseudonym, of Amelia Earhart; her feats as a Female Aviatrix, her trials as a woman in the World of Aviation and her dedication to America. Lots of drama, intrigue and finally sorrow as the movie closes on a thrilling note.
