Interesting Vintage Documentary
- D W Morris
I agree with the previous review. Very well done. Worth viewing if only for Laurence Olivier's performance as Vincent Lunardi. A small gem; like 'CloudsOver Europe' (aka 'Q Planes') (Ralph Richardson is highly amusing as an investigator of missing planes).Discovered it years ago, and laughed at the interpolated bits of Gilbert & Sullivan the principals fit into the dialog. It finally became available on DVD in 2010.
CONQUEST OF THE AIR..........A REQUEST.
- Patricia Lammersfeld
I enjoyed CONQUEST OF THE AIR......as the granddaughter of an early AirMail pilot who later flew for United Airlines...I ask..Is there any way I can find the name of the NY to LA pilot shown on the overnight flight ? He looked much like my grandfather......PL
A Classic Aviation Documentary
Exceptionally well executed in recreating many of the pivotal events in the development of the airplane--especially when it was made just before WWII (it was released in 1940 but was obviously made before Sept 1939).
