    I would love to see this classic film! I have never seen this movie, but I have met several people over the years who have raved about it since it was made in 3-strip Technicolor with beautiful cinematography and aerial flying sequences. Please run this film on TCM! And I would also vote for it to get a proper DVD release through Universal and TCM too.

    A terrific movie on thehistory of aviation up to 1938. Plot may not be the best, but the views of aircraft of the times in terrific. This movie should be run on TCM for the benefit of present and future generations.

  • William Wellman's History of Aviation up to 1938

    • Gartrell Bibberts

    From Allmovie.com: Brash and vigorous director William Wellman always had a place in his filmography for movies glorifying the early years of aviation -- from the start of his career (Wings), until the end (Lafayette Escadrille). But, perhaps, never has his devotion to aviation been made more vivid than in his 1938 drama Men With Wings. Wellman, in this film, attempts to dramatize the history of aviation from the early days of the Wright Brothers until the 1930s, when airline transportation first became viable. The story centers upon two contrasting aviation types: the barnstormer, Pat Falconer (Fred MacMurray), and the methodical scientist of flight, Scott Barnes (Ray Milland). Through these two archetypes, Wellman follows Pat and Scott from childhood to adulthood. Pat marries childhood sweetheart Peggy Ransom (Louise Campbell) and they have a child. Scott, who had always loved Peggy, remains in the background, not wanting to break up his solid friendship with Pat. But Pat is clearly doomed by his recklessness and breakneck individuality. After fighting in the skies during World War I, he refuses to sit back and do the methodical work of flight research like Scott. Always searching for another war to fight, Falconer leaves Scott and Peggy behind, taking off for China to help the Chinese fight Japanese invaders.
